Default elu mof 98

hi all
i,m a chippy by trade & my elu mof 177 has just died so i looked for a replacement & picked up a elu mof 98 thicking i could interchange a lot of the accessories.
Problem is i cant !!!!
The 98 came without a side fence but cant use the 177s as this runs on 2 rails while the 98 base only has 1 rail hole.
Tried changing the base & pillars around but there diffrent centres
Anyone know if the 98 model is compatable with any other ie dewalt?

Hope i havent come in all guns blazing

Jim

I don't know. The problem is the MOF 98 is a very old router from 1949 I think and was superseded by the MOF 177. DeWalt were based on later ELUs I guess, so you may be out of luck with DeWalt but other brands may be compatible.

No you won't be able to. The only direct compatibility is in the collet/collet nut area - the same collet design has been used by Elu since the 1960s, and has been copied widely (by amongst others Casals/Freud and Festool/Mafell, etc). Almost everything else is different. What do you need to do with the router? If you can let me know I'll probably be able to advise you on how to proceed (as a regular MOF98 user myself). BTW, did the router come with a guide bush holder and depth flag? They also go walkabout.

The MOF98 isn't that old, Charles, I think you've got it mixed up with the MOF11 which is the one which appeared in 1949. The MOF98 actually appeared in the 1970s and production ceased around 1984, That makes the newest one at least 27 years old. In fact the first "modern" looking Elu plunge router was the MOF31 which appeared in the mid 1960s. I used to have had an all-metal dated 1966 until some light fingered s*d took a shine to it.

Chippy = carpenter (English, colloquial)

Depth flag = what it says. Bosch routers also have/had them as do some Hitachis (M8, original M12, etc). Steel rod with pointer at top reading off depth scale on body of router. Bottom works against the depth turret when the router is plunged into a cut. can be seen to the right of the "deWalt" label on this DW613

Thanks Phil for the feed back

In the sates ,chippy=a female selling a service to a male.
Depth flag, = about the same in the states, but we call it a pointer.

That's a slang usage. More generally, it could mean a promiscuous woman. However it seems to me that "chippy" is one of those words whose meaning is actually defined entirely by the context in which it is used, as it has so many variants, so I would not worry about it.

Never heard it for the oldest profession before. To me Chippy is either a carpenter or a place selling fish and chips!

Cheers

Guys I dont know where to start but here goes !!!
1-Im a hairy assed carpenter,not a hooker,in the Uk chippy is slang for carpenter.
2-I have the guide bush holder,no probs for the 30mm bush
3-No depth flag/depth guide,but its only a rod so no probs there
4-Base plate has only 1 guide rod hole
5-Main use will be on kitchen worktops so im ok with that but when i want to use it with side fence i have to use my old 177 fence which has 2 rods & its not that solid running on 1 rod.
Hope that helps everyone.
By the way if i get any better offers as the other type of chippy im open to offers !!!
