  1. john1

    Fantastic trim router! The brushless motor packs a punch. I purchased the set version which comes with plunge base, offset base, side fence and various other extras. I have done edge work on hardwoods and softwoods and even cut out a 400mm circle in 22mm meranti. I sold my larger Festool router because this suits my needs better and can be used one handed for most of the tasks I need it for.

    Powerfully handy trimming router. You can never regret having one
