Monitoring ampere to find sweet spot?

Hello there!

I just got a (maybe) cool idea.

When running the LR2 the router should not be overloaded. This can be monitored by ear (you can hear it being overloaded).

But if you were to add a sensor that monitors the actually ampere being consumed while running a job, you can use that to tweak the settings of the router speed and even feed rate?

That would be quite neat, maybe?

Just a friendly reminder to check that this is a rabbit hole you want to go down. I’m not passing judgement on whether it is or not; not my time, not my dime (nor my circus, nor monkeys). Just thought I’d offer a brief breather before everyone settled in to their engineer armchair with their favorite libation…

Reminder of what lies in the depths of the “Warren of Zeros” (not this particular rabbit hole, but I think they connect somewhere in the deeping dark):

You could use something like the Kill a Watt kinda a device, it will do the same as going down the rabbit hole…
