Default For the European members.

Came across this Austrian company yesterday that has a nice looking router and 2 good looking router tables plus a host of other machinery. The price is pretty good also.

Bernardo: Produktansicht

I'll be going to their shop in Linz, Austria in July to check it out.

Also I found this other Austrian site which has the most extensive list of routers available in Europe that I have seen.

This black and decker one caught my eye for it's odd looks and the fact it comes with 1/4 inch, 6mm, 8mm, and 1/2 inch collets and has built in dust collection all at a reasonable price.

Good find.
If you go to the German variation of these site (remove at and add de) and run the same searches you get nearly the same results.

More tables though but higher prices.

Interesting Gav.The first site's prices do not include PDV or delivery, which may make a difference.
The B&D router has an interesting clamping system for the adjustable fence. It isn't the usual mazac casting. It also appears to have two fences, handy for morticing.

The Mannesmann looks like yet another MOF96 clone. Those things are far more useful than most buyers realise. All sorts of other makers' accessories fit them. I use an Einhell one with a Ryobi Fine adjustment fence, Perles fine height adjustor and Trend guide bushes, all of which work as if they were made for them. They just get marketed as cheap routers, which is a pity, as being very standardized, they have much more going for them. Four or five cheap routers set up for specific jobs can be very handy and cost no more than one dearer router.

Cheers

Peter

Peter, did you see the Iskra-ero router I posted in another thread ?
It looks interesting and is a bargain if it's any good.
Made just across the border in Slovenia.


Product detail
Shame there's not more details about it. Looks like it has fine height adjustment, but no mention of the fact.
I have one of their circular saws and it's good, nice cast aluminium base.

Hi gav

No, I missed it. What is the travel on the plunge on that one? It looks a bit short. Iskra/Perles stuff is normally OK.

Cheers

The minimum 50mm it seems. The interesting thing is it has a 12mm collet which is odd for a router in that price range.
