I'm going to the Trend T11 which like the CMT is based on the old Elu now made as the DeWalt DW625. The T11 has a larger plunge and cutter opening so perfect for use in a table especially as it has the fine height adjustment from both to & bottom for table use without needing a route rlift in the table.

Looks can be deceiving. In the latest review of plunge routers 3 HP and above the Bosch came in first with honorable mention going to Hitachi. It always pays to put your hands on a router and compare carefully before you buy!

I agree the looks can be deceiving.
The white one Axminster AW127R is basicaly MLCS router I think. at least it uses the same Router Raizer for both and since the price is around 80 Euro....?
The CMT is basically DW625 but can't tell if it's based on original DW625 which I have or the new lot.
I guess attending routerholic sessions hasn’t helped me.

The fine height adjuster on the T11 is a bit of a pig to use as the crank supplied isn't big enough I am afraid. I still think there is no better way than to remove the springs and use the normal fine height adjuster. a Raizer would be nice but too expensive for a tight wad like me. :D Personally I would opt for the CMT as this is very similar to the old Elu 177 and the De Walt 625.
