think i will go for dewalt as it is only 122 notes
the dewalts are basically the same as the trend ones
some models are comparable but they dont do this 1
and for 122 gbp its a bargain
i have that one but its elu before they changed to dewalt
and my dad gave me that router i love it though as long as it hasnt changed it is top dog
they do a2000w router that was an elu design aswell which is good. What do you think for £122 inc vat
dont think you could do any better really you dont need any bigger than that nhave you used a hinge jig before ?
nope. in fact i was only saying thy were a waste of time a few weeks back and look here i am asking about buing 1. £305 for jig router and cutter
where are you getting it from
waster of time ? once you have used one it will change your mind trust me they are awesome
power tools plus in carlton notts
take a look at dm-tools they are quite good too i use them alot . im off now anyway nite all
I have two Elu 96's and a De Walt 615 and can say that the De Walt is the closest you will get to the Elu. I think the Bosch routers use a special guide bush but the De Walts and Elu's use the Trend ones. HTH.
17mm guide bush, 12.7mm cutter and a hammer?
Just a thought..
i did consider the 17mm and 12.7mm cutter but thought 0.6mm is a bit tight to get the hinges in and would prefer to get the correct stuff for the job
Hey chip i forgot to say before, get the corner chisel as well it saves loads of time
i have 1 for the lock jig thanks. I was thinking of buying hinges with the radius corner as i supply all the materials and i think they look better
kk, i was looking at the lock jig but it wouldnt do the size of faceplate i was fitting, 235mmx25mm, so i made a jig out of the good old mdf and clamped that to doors for routing faceplate, works fine, after this i discovered that trend do two lock jigs the second one is same style as smaller one but will do bigger sizes, but hey ho will leave that for a future buy
i use mine all te time and it is amazing. I would say it takes 7 min to cut a lock in and it dont matter if there are knots or any thing in the way because it cuts straight through them without risk of splitting
As Timber Tech says,
2 piece jig is just as acurate as the 1 piece once screwed together,
btw, now available here:
Chip off the block: Quote "i had 1 of those and i burnt out in a few days"
Are you referring to the T3 or the new T4 which has a increased motor specification ?
i think it was the t3 and it was the bushes that went in it which was odd in that time
also the 1 piece is cheaper
