B&Q have a smaller router UB1020WR Black 1020W, which I assume will be suitable for hinge and lock work. Has one customer review, a positive one.
I will check out the Milescraft site, thanx. I intend to build a garage, got 13 x 12 ft wide trusses off Ebay a while back. Though had to wait for that size to come along. Got them for a really good price, hired a truck to pick them up, also at the same time , also from Ebay, got a 6 x 4 trailer that I hitched up behind the truck. I'm also intending to do a first floor rear extension above the kitchen extension.
It might be of interest for you to know, I'm using Ashampoos 3D CAD Architecture 2, to draw up the plans for the planning application to the local council. Ashampoo was a really silly price, about £25 it cost, really top quality professional program. Before I had Arcons 3D Architecture which costs £199, one just can't make any sense of how to use it, support is rubbish. They do offer courses on how to use the program, which probably, explains why the programs online help makes it very unclear on how to get the results one is looking for.
If Ashampoo is of any interest, one can download the fully functioning trial version, at the end of the trial, they come back to you offering the program even cheaper, crazy, they do the same with all their other software, do lots of different types. of programs.
Until I get the plans in and garage built, the only place I have to do any routing, wood working is in the back garden. I'm thinking of putting together a very basic work bench, I have a couple of plastic very strong plastic saw horses. On top of that put 2 or 3 old front doors, on top of that 1/2' ply, clamp it together, if need too concrete blocks on shelves of saw horses. cover with a tarpaulin. Stand it on some paving slabs on the grass. The router table and stand I can just carry outside. I'm going to see about off cuts of timber for practising routing getting old doors to cut up and use as practise timber.
Thanks for your help Peter.
All the best,
