Default Christmas present problem solved

It has occurred to me that the wives of many members are probably tearing their hair out wondering what to buy their hubby for Christmas. Well I have the answer, as all those who follow my routing threads will know, I "discovered" a brilliant type of router chuck called a MUSCLECHUCK which replaces the original chuck and only requires a half turn of an Allen key to lock and unlock the bit. In addition it gives about an extra half inch of depth of cut which in many cases can mean that no extension is required. So fellow members my idea is to leave several notes around the house saying something like "I would love to have a MUSCLECHUCK FOR MY xyz router. Just a thought.
For the many Australian and New Zealand members there is now an Aussie agent:

and the US one

When I mount my PC7815's in a router table would it be somethg to think about adding?

I donít always insulate , but when I do .

It's a case of when you discover something exciting it has to be shared, not kept a secret Rick. Don't forget that this is a ROUTER forum!

It would be a nice improvement, unfortunately with 3 router motors that could start to add up pretty quick!

I guess I would really only need to install it on 2 of them........

Harry I bought one of these for my table router and love it. Going to fit them to my hand helds in time. They dont have a lot of instruction with them and I was wondering what the setting rings are used for? Thanks in advance

Is the postage cost between the US and Canada much more than within the US?

That's a really good suggestion Harry. I was wondering what I might ask Mr. Claus to put under our tree. I suppose it works nicely on a Triton TRA001 in a table? Can't imagine it won't. Does it just fit into the existing collet?
