That is a super deal Bill. I bought one up here for $130 and I thought that was a really good deal. They are a very nice router to use.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Chuck,

I use those routers on my Cnc machines. This is a great deal for a new router. I got one for a backup.

There are people here in Australia obviously making HUGE profits when you compare router prices in general, however Hitachi Australia don't bother to list a single fixed base router no doubt because there is so little call for them compared to plunge routers except for the odd specialist application.

If you were only going to buy one it should be a plunge. But if you are profiling board edges then the smaller fixed base routers are nicer to use. I hadn't thought about the VC in a CNC application but it should do very nicely for that.

While we are not as expensive as Oz compared to the states, Amazon Canada has the VC on for $127Can which doesn't account for the difference in exchange rates right now.
