Question: Can a dust collector still be used with the Fully Automatic System?
Answer:  Yes. Depending on the type of dust collection foot used and initial setup of the Tool Platform.  The higher the tool platform is set up, the more room is available for the dust collector foot under the tools.  Some modifications to the dust collection foot may be necessary.

Question: What happens if there is a problem with the unit and it needs repair after the 30 days?
Answer: If service is needed within the 1st 90 days, return the unit to Midwest Rapid Tool Inc. and the unit will be  repaired or replaced at Midwest Rapid Tool Inc option.  The unit will be returned using UPS ground service along with a refund for your shipping costs (at UPS Ground rates).

Question: Can the unit be serviced by the owner?
Answer: Yes.  After the warranty period the owner can replace brushes, bearings......  Since most of the modifications to the Tool Changer are done internally to the armature assembly, it is not any more difficult to replace bearings or brushes than on a standard model PC-7518 router.

Question: Will this unit replace a spindle?
Answer: NO.  If your applications requires a commercial spindle, buy one.  The right tool for the job applies here also.  This system is intended to replace a standard Porter Cable 7518 Tool Changer in an application which is appropriate for a Porter Cable router.  If most cutting is done with bits 1/2 or less with the occasional  use of larger bits, than this system would be feasible.   For bits larger than 1/2 diameter, it is recommended to use the standard 1/2" Porter Cable collet.

Question: Is this available with the Milwaukee 3 1/2hp Tool Changer
Answer: No.  Routers from Milwaukee, Bosch, Makita, Dewalt, Freud, and Festool among others have been evaluated.  The geometry of the spindle taper and how it is connected to the router make them impossible to be modified using this type of system.
