You're right!Although pretty insignificant with current CNC processes.
The blank is on the table a few minutes longer, and there's a little more wear on the router bit.
It's not like 15 years ago when it meant that the blank had to move from the band saw to a drill press with a Forstner bit... though before CNC it was likely done with the same bit that bored out the corners of the control and switch cavities.... so 14 holes instead of 5.
I guess what I said applies to modern and chambered weight relief these days if so.
It's all good, man!Apologies shelkonnery & rogueaverage616, I was clumsily attempting to ask a rhetorical question about the 9 hole weight relief and it’s relative desirability, as I understand that non-weight relieved is usually viewed as the superior spec. I realise now I didn’t express myself very clearly. I appreciate your answers and perspectives, though.
I clearly got carried away
