Default The Ultimate Router Base?

This made the top of my want list. It might be called the ultimate router base:

You can bet Rockler will have a high price tag on that.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Just click pre-order to find out. Not for me, just something more fancy to go out of whack and cost a bunch to repair.

Computer fried a mother board awhile back. It would have cost me about 2 1/2 times what buying a replacement computer would cost. It was not repaired.

No patience, few routing skills? Perfect.

This isn't just about lacking skill. There are few, if any, on this site who could do what this thing can. Similarly, my carving machine, which relies on a pattern, does what would be humanly impossible [using a router].

It's another tool, that's all. If using it is so horrible, then, since this is a router forum, so is using a bandsaw or tablesaw and so on.

I will admit, using it to do entire projects most of us would use other equipment on is demanding an awful lot from a router and bit. I would see this as more of a minute detail machine.

I haven't been all over the site. I looked at the price and, as expected, it's not free. Fifteen seems not unreasonable, though I can't afford to rush out and buy one.

My next wonder is, how much is the tape they use to give the machine the ability to track itself?


---------------went back and looked around and found it listed for about $15.00 for a 150' roll

I'm sorry but I want one . Waiting for someone here to buy one first so we can find out how reliable this puppy is .
I think it's a genius design IMO , and not much worse price wise than a Festool.

But I have a feeling it's going to be about as popular as 3D glasses in a few years, but hopefully this takes off .

For me, it's a another very expensive tool, one that I would have no use for anyway.

Come on Joat, you've been around long enough to know its about buying cool toys, then justifying the need.
