Default Performax trim router on sale again

Last year I posted that the Performax trim router was on sale at Meynards. Well it is on sale again, until this Sunday. $39.00, normally sells for $60.00.
I just wanted to pass this on to everyone. I already have 3 of them. The last two are still in the carry case.

I don't need another router at the moment but when I look at the features and the price I am tempted.

I see "on-line" price listed there... is this available in the store, or just on line?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but does that not look just like the Dewalt, only a different colour?

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Same as the Makita trim router. Probably made in the same factory. All makita accessories fit it. I know. I have 5 of the Performax. I keep a different chamfer/round over/flush trim/end mill in each. Bought some Makita accessories and they are interchangeable.

Thanks 4D. Was sure I'd seen that design somewhere... that's OK, I like Makita better than the yellow ones anyway.

Brian, it is the same as the MLCS "Little Rocky" , I have and also have a Makita that is the same except the color is Blue. I bought a plunge base for mine on sale to use in my Makita and it fits perfectly. I use the Rocky in my panto-graph.

They seem to work good. Can't believe that price,tho.

Thanks for this reminder Ellery. I managed to get out and pick one up before the sale ended. Looks like a nice little unit. I finally got it out for a spin around the shop today. Seems to work just fine, altho I'm a bit disappointed in the dust collection but maybe it was because I hooked it up to my shop vac.
