Hi Dan:

Hmmm, I'd forgotten how many there were. There are four comparisons, three router articles and one safety article. Now, I'm *embarrassed*.

Here's one pic of the machine.

Hi Dean:

Do you have some better pictures? From what little I can see, it looks like a Trend router lathe but I can't make out the base.

There's also the Old Wood Working Machinery web site OWWM.com .

When I searched the "ironwood' brand name I got some pretty heavy-duty factory type stuff with magnetic switching, the whole bit. Interesting stuff. Is this what you're referring to?

Mark,
I have the manual for the Mill-Right Model 529 that I scanned and emailed to gtrboy77 and I can post it to this site if there is a folder.

Default Skil Routers

Until today, I was not aware that Skil was part of the Bosch product line. Since I didn't know this, it is safe to assume some others don't know either. Could you add Skil to the list?

Didn't see anything listed for "Skil" I know they are a low cost tool but it's all some can afford....

How about creating a section for JoinTec. I've helped several people with information on their IPM-1 jig and have posted images of their templates for the IPM-1 on this site. They also made the IPM-2, SawTrain, a router lift, and several other tools. Since they no longer exist and people are still looking for information on their products I think it would be good to add them here.

Another is "The Mini Fence" by Krymi Corp in Eckert, Colorado. It is a box joint jig for making very small box joints and inlay bands. I'm presently trying to find a manual for this jig. There is a Youtube video for it called "The Original Mini Fence", but this is all that I've found so far. Mr Krymi and his company seem to have vanished in the mid 90's.

Charley, any information on these brands would fall into the "Other" category because there is not much available about them.
