Bargain for South African readers
Have just picked up a nice little router (1050W) from checkers-Hyper.
Make is their branded 'Shultz' , sounds german but made in china.
Well made and quite robust. Has better baseplate than my ryobi and better,sturdier lock mechanism for bit changing.
I know some will critisise and say go for more expensive but if your looking for a DIY router(ie not used for full time production) you cannot beat the price of R399 ($37.50).
Just a heads up, I think the offer is on till 10th Aug.
I also picked up a spare 500W drill for R130($12), again Shultz
