A book called "Router Magic" by Bill Hylton has a very good plan. I've got most of the metal parts collected and will begin construction in the next month or so.

Where the Shopnotes plan uses wooden gears, The Hylton plan calls for bicycle chains and sprockets.

eBay and Craigslist have the original ones listed occasionally. Recently saw a new in box one on CL for $258.00. They only cost $99.00 back when they were new, years ago. I was lucky and had mine given to me.

Hi Gio. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

Where in the Great White North are you? I have one here in Southern Ontario that I could be talked out of.
