Just to clarify, Steve, this is a pre-owned router you're talking about, right? Does the spec plate say what country it's from? If it's 220V it may well be from Great Britain; folks move over here, bringing all there stuff with them. They don't really stop to consider the implications of having incompatible machinery. I say that because that's what my Late neighbour did. All his small tools were 220V...never did get around to doing anything about them, and nobody wanted them after he passed. Couldn't give them away; a couple of thousand $$$ worth got tossed.
