I love this calculator. I run a table router and this is a life saver any time I cut something new (which is about twice a week). The only thing that would make it better for me is if it had a high AND low rpm limit. My spindle bottoms out at 4000rpm and I'm not sure how to approach a recommended feed rate when the recommended speed is below this.

Minimum RPM is right now available on HSMAdvisor- the standalone version.
Online FSWizard does not yet have it. i will add it to the pipeline
As a fix you can play with SFM override until it hits your desired RPM.
After i sort out some things there will be a major rewrite of the online version. This feature will be included as well.
I was just searching for this exact topic. I have a Shapeoko HDM, and min speed is 8000
I've been just interpolating and adjusting the feedrate to get a desired chip load.
one problem is the spindle doesn't have the horsepower to get too carried away, so I end up opting for a thinner chip.
I'm guessing since this is a 9 yr old topic, there is no intention to add the enhancement?
This was requested about 2 times in these 9 years, so... I will add it eventually when I add machine profiles. But at this time there is no definite timeline. I got too many things on my plate.
