Default Router Lathe

Hello everyone,
My name is Randolph.
I have read a little about the Router Lathe.
I have yet, to find out where I can purchase one.
Can anyone help me on this.

I saw one being demonstrated at the International Woodworking show last year, I think it was made by Trend.

Last year Derek?

Trend did the same one as the Craftsman one that sold in the States but discontinued it some time ago and now hardly even have any spares left.
Your best bet is going to be eBay, Randolph. It is a subject that often comes up and as far as we know, no one currently makes a router lathe commercially. There was a more robust one produced in China that sold in Canada and South Africa but the importer in Canada went under and I don't think the SA firm still does it either.

Cheers

There's always this one made in Sri Lanka, although the makers do seem to have a wide product portfolio! Of course there's always the home made approach as espoused by Bill Hylton in his book "Router Magic" (ISBN 1-86108-127-8). I've just found a photo of his design here (half way down the page). Looks promising.

Regards

Phil

Well, it certainly looked quite robust ! I've asked them for a price.

Cheers

Or there is this one here Catalogue - Routing - Hand-Held Router Accessories but I think the freight would send you to the poor house.
