This trim router has to be a good buy. The price shown is in Ozzie dollars so I would expect it to be cheaper in the US. It looks well made and considering most woodworkers use a trim router far less than their full size one it should last for many years.

I will admit I have been shopping for one.

I find it a little hard to believe that it's 2200 watts.

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.

and the data plate shows 110V 60Hz
another plate shows 220V 50HZ..
it listed as a 220 model...
same router in red shows 800 watts...

There's more than one version, Stick. EU/Au/N. America. You need to click on the appropriate voltage to get the one you need.
$53Cdn including shipping! (Cdn. Taxes and Customs will be extra I assume.)

The specs on Harry's list the Wattage as 2200W PEAK load....1000W RATED power.
Scroll down quite a bit to get to the specs.

I often reach for my trim router. Not a lot of power, but it is really handy and easily managed for light duty cuts. I think it would be hard to beat at this price. It does have a clear plastic base, which is nice. But I wouldn't count on getting parts in the future.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I expect it would be a gamble but then so often these days it's hard to say where any of our stuff is being made. I just recently heard that American drugs are most often made in China. Who thought that was a good idea? I guess it's all about maximizing the holy profit margin. Go figure......
