Hi Joe

So so reviews ▼
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/cu..._pt/103-2306094-7750249?ie=UTF8&n=228013&s=hi

But it maybe worth a try for that price but it's long shot. :)

What's wrong with it? There has to be something wrong...

The price is just unreal!

I stumbled on this while checking on a Jet air cleaner.

What's wrong with this router?

The price is right!

Corey,
I spoke with Harry (harrysin) on Skype last night and he didn't have anything bad to say about it, but then he doesn't own one either. Who knows? It may turn out to be one of those "glad I did it" deals. I HOPE. :'(

Hi George

I got one also and I know I will need to do some rework on the router ,like the base plate and maybe the lock tab for the bit changer.

But look on the bright side, you could have spend the money to fill your gas tank up that's about the same total now days, but you will have a new router at the end of the week and not have a empty gas tank in the same time frame, and you may end up with 3 boats Anchors and they are not cheap now days also.

But I don't think so, It can't be that bad of a tool, it may not be the high end tool but I'm sure it's going to be OK. :)

For 48.oo bucks that's not to bad for a router combo setup, I do keep one around my shop that I let others use or to say abuse (to use wrongly or improperly; misuse.) like most do :)

Let me know when you get yours and I will do the same. :)

BY THE WAY it just went up in PRICE now at 83.00 bucks ,that should make you feel better :)

PC bushes = NOPE that's the rework I was taking about :)

But I'm going to use a standard PC black base plate and redrill it out for the GMC mounting holes but it may need a bigger hole put in the main base as well, it said it would only take 1" router OD bits max but I need to have a look see 1st.
It also comes with one guide but I'm not sure what size that is.

Looks like we got in under the wire. I think we did good. Now I can keep the Triton on the table. I just hope this thing accepts PC bushes.

Hey guys, I really didn't mean to stir up a hornets nest! :) :)

I guess it was a good router worth taking a chance on... at least for Table work.

Kinda wish I had done it too... Bob & gas comment sounded good...

Oh well... I guess I'll wait for another time...

BTW, the price of that router combo is $82.86 now!

Glad y'all were able to get in on it... Hope it works out to be good.

We really had some FUN... didn't we?!! :) :)

George *****

Here's a better look at the base, it looks like the same base as the 1500 with a insert in the center of the base, so to say it's not going to be a big deal putting on a PC black plastic base plate or a after market clean base plate, to take on the PC brass guides. (maybe)

NOTE**** the max speed of this router 31,500 rpm. but that's at 220 volts ,that's fast. the norm is about 24,000 rpm.
