Default Housing router / Shoulder router

I have a Makita shoulder router (2157N) that burned up. I've been trying to replace or even repair it with no avail. I've only been able to find it listed for sale on the Japanese market but none that I contacted would ship overseas.
Does anyone know where I can find one or a similar type machine, or even where I can get it repaired. I'm familiar with the Mayfel machine but that's more than I'm looking to spend.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks

Thanks guys.

Still hoping to hear from someone on this so I'm bumping the thread.

Also there's a typo in the original post. It's Makita 2517N

Here is a pic

I'm unable to post a link until I reach 10 postings.

So if you just Google this exact phrase it'll show up at the top

" rakuten makita full house 2517N "

I should mention that the website that I referenced above I recently found and submitted a shipping inquiry to. It's the only one that I didn't have to get translated from Japanese to English just to navigate the site. They even show the cost to ship it to the US ($280). So fingers crossed!


I have both Makita's shoulder router and chain-mortise (which is now out of commission and need a 2nd one of). Over the past 15 years these two tools have been amazingly efficient and worth every cent. I can't begin to calculate the amount of mileage that were put on both pieces of equipment before they failed.

Good point Stick. After a point pricewise it becomes feasible to repair tools and many of the industrial quality tools are made to a standard where they can be repaired instead of thrown away. My search showed that machine at $1500 so its worth dragging it to a repair shop to see what they say.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
