Hello John! I can only say for You to check E-bay. They are picked up by folks on the forum, and I have reason to believe that E-bay might have one. Be a little careful on the net, make sure that You talk to the store and ask a few specific questions like shape, is it all there, and is it original.

Hi John

Welcome to the group. You could try eBay or Craigslist as they've been out of production for a while. The Trend one is identical. A better bet, as they were more robust, would be the cast iron ones that a Canadian chain imported who went out of business. I'm sorry I can't remember their name. In some markets, it was known as the Sherwood Router Lathe. The principle of them all is the same.

Cheers

Peter

Peter, that photograph is familiar, it's from a TIMBECON catalogue and the gent demonstrating is Wes Miller-Smith, an American who worked for TIMBECON here in Perth for a while and gave Saturday morning demonstrations which I attended every week. Whilst the add. says that any router can be used, I'm sure that everyone will notice that the one shown is a MAKITA!

Hi Harry

Note the other picture, It's a snapshot of the best router to use on the rig, it's only 1 1/2HP but it has all the power one needs and a big hole in the base that will let the user use the big bits,
unlike the MAKITA and it's not a plunge router that's not needed and with a router speed control box to slow down the big bits down, it's just right size..the right tool for the right job I think.

It's too bad you can get the best router (PC) and you need to use that tank for most of your router jobs
