Introducing the Musclechuck from IDC Woodcraft. The Ultimate CNC Router Bit Change Solution!

The Musclechuck is a revolutionary tool, made for the Makita RT0701C trim router, that makes router bit changing fast, easy, and secure. 

Using the standard 2-wrench method to tighten your CNC bits on the Makita is almost a 3-handed job because you need to hold the router bit at the same time you’re handling 2 wrenches.

The Musclechuck, designed for 1/4 shank CNC router bits, eliminates both wrenches and replaces them with a single 7/64 hex wrench (included FREE with your Musclechuck order). This frees one hand up to manage the router bit while the other does the tightening/loosening to change the bit.

 The Musclechuck replaces the standard nut and collet with a precision-turned split ring that tightens onto the router bit shank. You'll enjoy an exceptional 0.001-inch runout tolerance, ensuring accuracy for all your CNC woodworking projects. 

The precision-turned split ring assembly ensures the router bit will not slip during operation and is easier to clean than nuts and collets are.

 The Musclechuck is an upgrade in convenience when it comes to CNC routers. Get the Musclechuck from IDC Woodcraft and revolutionize your router bit changes!

 

NOTE: The Musclechuck is not available for 1/8” shank CNC router bits. To use 1/8” shank bits, you will need to use the 1/4-1/8 adaptor.

Easy way to install cnc bits.

I installed the muscle chuck, and the installation was easy. I run a cut with the muscle chuck, and it runs like it was part of the router. The thing I like is that it adds another half inch length. Install and removing bits are easy with only the use of the torx driver that comes with the muscle chuck. IDC muscle chuck adds some info, stickers, and m&m's to its package.

Pretty handy tool.

Well you were right it saves a lot of time swapping bits over. One slight annoying part though is when using a reducing collet. 1/4 down to 1/8 the collet sometimes stays up in side the chuck. You then have to take it to pieces to fish it out. Not a drama but annoying.

It does make changing bits faster - unless you're using the 1/8" adapter.

The muscle chuck arrived very quickly, as all my purchases from IDC. The chuck is a handy addition to my Makita router and does make changing 1/4" bits a little faster just for the fact that I don't have to mess with two wrenches, hold the lock button, hold the bit in place while turning the nut. The only issue, if you can call it that, is the 1/8" adapter makes it *harder* to change bits as it gets stuck in the muscle chuck and I sometimes have to get a small screwdriver into the gap by the set screw to open it up enough for the adapter to let go. All-in-all, I'm satisfied with it.

Muscle Chuck quick change collet.

I haven't used it much but it IS definitely very easy and fast to do a tool change. I was concerned about the design of the Muscle Chuck causing more runout vs a normal collet, but I really have not noticed any difference. That being said I am only machining wood, not something that requires super close tolerances. It is after all, a desk top CNC router not an actual CNC mill. All in all I like the ease, speed, and convenience of the Muscle Chuck.
