Default Does anybody know if this brand is good ?

Hi fellow woodworkers,

I have an e-mail from a Montreal based retailer of everything to do with woodworking, and it shows a big powerful router for only $279 with table top adjust ability. I recently bought the Bosch but I am curious about this one.

Cheers,
Dan

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

No idea, Dan; sounds Italian? Even if it's really well made if there was a problem, where would you find support/parts?

That's always my criteria. I see these off brands of plumbing fixtures...mostly from Europe...and I shudder. The buyer will need parts in the future. Good luck on that!

Same price as the 3.25hp Triton TRA001. Have never heard of the one you found, but if your going for a table mounted router, the Triton is my choice. They now have very good support, and lots of people here like it. Can't really attest to customer service, the Triton hasn't had a problem.

I knew I heard the name on the forum before so I did a search and came up with this thread from 2011. Note in particular what Phil P had to say : https://www.routerforums.com/general...ti-router.html He makes them sound a lot like an Italian version of Ryobi.

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.

Yes, an Italian manufacturer. (That's the limit of my knowledge.)

The name and second line looks like Italian. I would be cautious about getting parts and service. Do your homework on it. Personally, I would buy a known brand. You could gets lots of info here.

I think Freud was selling rebranded Felisatti stuff. I know their router fence was identical. I'm not sure if that's good though... I believe Freud decided to get out of selling power tools.

Or maybe Felisatti is Freud's power tool line???
