The RPM range of the Shaper SM1 spindle is 10,000-26,000RPM. Below is the rough speed of each setting:
- 1. 10,000 RPM
- 2. 13,200 RPM
- 3. 16,400 RPM
- 4. 19,600 RPM
- 5. 22,800 RPM
- 6. 26,000 RPM
The right spindle speed setting will depend a lot on the material, your bit size, and the speed in which you move Origin. As a general tip, if it is feeling grabby your speed settings are likely too low, if you are smelling any burning it means your speed settings are too high for how fast you are moving.
For cutting hardwood and plywood at Origins auto speed (holding down the green button) we recommend the spindle speed setting between 5 and 6.
