Does anybody know of a 220 volt (motor only) router?
I'm in the market for a router lift, but after extensive searching and inquiring all the major manufacturers I am still at a loss for a compatible router to put in it. The Mast-R-Lift II seems to be the one that accept the most amount of routers, although the claim "fits every fixed base router we could find on the market" seem a little exaggerated (or is at least not true for the European markets).
Here's a list of some of the routers it supports;
Porter Cable 7518, 690-699 series, & 890-899 series
DeWalt DW610 & DW618
Makita RF1101 & RD1101
Hitachi M12VC & KM12VC
Milwaukee 5625, 5615, 5616, & 5619
Craftsman 17543, 17540, & 28190
The only router I know of from that list that is available in a 220 volt version is the Bosch 1618 (although named GMF 1400 CE here). Unfortunately it's a discontinued model and I've not been able to track one down yet. The Milwaukee models are confirmed NOT available in Europe (although that is a well established brand here). Porter Cable is a much lesser known brand and those models are also confirmed MIA.
Does anybody know if any of the other models are available in 220 volt versions?
Or should I go for a transformer as this router would be mounted in my table at all times anyway?
If you tell me to give up on the idea of a router lift all together, I would appreciate a tip on what router to buy for easy handling mounted on a plate in a table.
