    I know I should ask this rather on a CNC forum, but do you think it would be possible to use a 110V router on 240V electrical with the use of a step-down transformer?

    Yup. 110v is the standard for the construction industry. Have one of these myself.

    Yes, but only for a short time. It will burn through the brushes at an incredible rate before it's fiery demise.

    ok so with something like This where would you run it?

    as in, would you place it directly between the router and all the electronics or would you place it directly coming from wall and set up the cnc as a 110V system?

    That would entirely depend on your long term plans...

    If you plan on remaining in a 230V area for the foreseeable future then I'd leave only the router with 110V. Whereas, if you plan on moving (I presume back) to a 110v area, then it makes more sense to make everything 110V at the moment and run it all through the transformer. That way when you are again 110V you don't need to worry about your control equipment - though I suppose you could run it through the transformer stepping up rather than down...

    However - you can get a decent 230V router (or a couple of cheep ones) for the cost of that transformer...

    hahahaha, my newbness was in such a hurry that when I bought it (imported), I never looked at the operating voltage :duh:

    guess I'll just stick to my original plans for it to be used as a wood router in a custom made table

    thanks for the info guys
