Frequently Asked Questions


TOT! router sled´s dustless system was designed to flatten the wood.

TOT! can be used for small cracks filled with epoxy with no problem.

Theoretically, it could be used for larger resin surface as well.

ON EPOXY ALWAYS USE A SLIGHTLY LOWER RPM THAN ARE RECOMMENDED MAX. RPM FOR YOUR ROUTER BIT

(for example, a 60mm CMT router bit we sell, has the best result with a 12000 RPM on wood and 10500 – 11000 RPM on epoxy).

ON EPOXY ALWAYS USE A LOWER DEPTH OF CUT AND SMALL SPEED OF MOVE


Anyway keep in mind, that the epoxy behaves during flattening totally different than wood.
Wood is split into small chips and mostly dust.
Opposite that, epoxy has tendencies makes long strips which are stuck together. It is more difficult to exhaust these strips in the same way as wooden dust. Epoxy chips can clog sealing brushes and exhausting hose too.

!!!Epoxy chips can permanently damage sealing brushes if brushes are not protected properly!!!

Here you can see how to protect sealing brushes with strong duct cloth tape.

In large surfaces of epoxy we strongly recommend:

  1. protect sealing brushes with a strong duct cloth tape!
  2. use a 50 mm hose with a dust collector!
  3. check repeatedly sealing brushes and exhausting hose during flattening of the epoxy surface!
  4. always keep sealing brushes clean!
  5. clean sealing brushes before/after every use!

We do not sell the profiles because the transport of long packages is very expensive. You can get profiles from your local retailer for a better price. If you need help in this matter, let us know and we help you find your local distributor.

TOT! is designed for 40X80mm (or 45x90mm) aluminum strut profiles.

For a wider router sled than 160 cm (total width) you will need cross profiles 45x90 with 10mm T-slots

In case you will use cross profiles 45x90, please let us know before you place an order. You will need the 50 mm long sealing brushes instead of the standard 20mm long which we will replace for free.
