Elu

Perhaps Champy and Sant can help provide manuals from Europe.

Guys in OZ, I've seen some brand names particular to your neck of the woods. Can you track down some manuals please? I tried but they don't have them online.

Rupes Tools

High quality sanders popular in the motor trade for body rebuilding.

Rather than trotting out a list of European brands you've never heard of I'll limit myself to a few routetr brands which were/are sold in the USA, namely:

Elu, Felisatti, Trend and Virutex

Elu routers have featured rather prominently of late, and we've touched on Felisatti (who make or have made routers for Fein, Metabo and Trend). Trend is a newish player in the USA, but even BobJ has mentioned their T4, whilst Virutex have a small presence in the trade market in the USA

For the benefit of the Europeans might I also suggest Perles, who made and still make some of the former Elu products, and Mafell, who are not big in the USA

My ELU DS 40 was made in Slovenia but I'd never realised they were made by Perles. Their routers certainly bear a strong resemblance to the ELU ones. I bought a fine depth adjuster from Perles' Zagreb dealer to use with my Einhell ELU knock off and it fits perfectly, as of course do Trend guide bushes.

For router dovetail jigs you can add SIP who sell the usual generic one but include three different combs (7/16,1/2 and 9/16 )and a bearing guided dovetail cutter in the price.

They also list, with exploded view diagrams, all the spares for the tools they offer. Given the generic nature of many of them,they could be a useful source of spares for anything differently branded, but otherwise the same, if the original brand can't offer them.
SIP UK Industrial Products. Power Tools SIP Industrial Tools : SIP Industrial Workshop Bench Machines, SIP Garage and Worksite Equipment. SIP UK Online Shop

I couldn't find the dovetail jig listed on their site currently, although they list all the spares for it and external dealers are selling it,eg. Sip Quick Set Dovetail Jig - Dovetail Jigs - SIP Machinery - DIY Tools | www.DIYTools.co.uk

SIP offer a full range of bandsaws as well as a router.

Cheers

Since Perles and Felisatti have come up, I should point out that Perles was bought out a long time ago by the Slovenian company Iskra, who also do a green diy line called Iskra-ero.
They have a very well priced router now that excepts 8mm and 12mm bits.

Felisatti along with Freud have been bought out by a Russian company who sell their routers pretty cheaply in Russia.

Ф€езе€н‹е маˆин‹ ˜н‚е€скол

AEG is fairly widespread in Europe and I didn't notice it under the list of Router manufacturers in the manuals section.

Hilti is also popular over here.

Hi Mark

Nice job, but just too many and most can be found on the web sites for the tool

The objective is not to inventory _current_ manuals but ones that are no longer supported. Unfortunately, current product is very quickly allocated to "no longer supported" so I guess that means that we need current manuals just because they'll be out of date soon.

Given your inventory of tools and parts I would think you have a treasure trove of "no longer supported" tool manuals. How about uploading some? The greater the diversity, the greater the information resources. That lets everyone learn.

Pretty much what Ron said, the idea is to create a database, meaning current and previous tool manuals. Remember, the "new" models now, will be unsupported in short time, so why not create an index of manuals so that in 10 years when they are unsupported, we can still offer the necessary documentation

It's a common practice of tool companies to remove tools and associated documents from their website when a newer version is released.

Also as usual, if you have any ideas for additional companies, please post and suggest!
