    I swear by my Perles 808.
    It's over 6 years old and never given any bother.
    Swiss made and as good as a Swiss watch.
    It must be good, Trend copied it exactly as their T5.

    I'd love to try the Festool.
    It's pricey at £350 but can be safely used with one hand.

    Of my 6 routers, the CMT 1850 is the one I would keep if I had to get rid of the rest. I use it for everything from making cabinet doors in the router table, worktops and light moulding tasks. I also really like the old Elu routers.
