This 120volt Makita trim router kit, the same as what I have appears to be a bargain at this price. I'm over the moon with mine which I've had for some time and is used via a step down auto transformer.

The first link shows the transformer that I bought, at the time only a little over $80.00.
The second link to the smaller one will almost certainly handle the starting current but I feel safer with the 3KV one as I might buy other US tools when the exchange rate improves.

With the 1 1/4 HP this would be a good choice for a small CNC machine that uses a trim router like the CNC Shark or similar machines.

Here is a link for the router without the additional bases.

It sure does pay to shop around Mike, in my humble opinion that would be the best buy ever, it really is a brilliant performing router with bases to suit every possible trimming requirement. Again in my humble opinion, bargains like this don't hang around for long.

I did not need all the extras but got the one with the plunge base and they are giving a $20 makita rebate so it cost me about $120 + tax

Just looked at my link and the price has already increased $28.15. I should have bought it earlier!
