    New to CNC and only had my Workbee 1010 for a week. Working with the WorkBee, I have not seen any method to control the router using g-codes. It all appears to be manual. Is there anyway to hook the Dewalt 611 router to a controller to automate these processes?

    Thank you for your time.

    For speed control you can use something like the SuperPID: www.SuperPID.com - Super-PID Closed-loop Router Speed Controller I have one but have never hooked it up. I bought it before actually using the machine but have found that I rarely need to adjust the speed of the router.

    For simple on and off control, you can use an IOT relay. If you are in a location that uses 110v, then this one is available in the OB store: IOT Switching Relay Power Strip If you have the Blackbox, here's how to hook it up: OpenBuilds BlackBox 4X Documentation
