Topic tags/keywords: router dove tail

I came across this add on CL Seattle, http://seattle.craigslist.org/est/tls/2318756466.html. I was wondering if any of you LJ’ers have ever used or had an interest in a machine like the one that is offered here.

Never seen this one before, BTW wonder what his deal is on the hardwoods he mentions, might get yourself some cheap timber :))

Looks kind of interesting. $500 is a chunk-o-change, but it might be worth it. ??

I have never seen one. wouldn’t know how it would work, much less if it is worth the money. That’s why I posted it here. I was hoping that someone might know something about it.
I wouldn’t mind using parts of it to assemble a Matthias Wandel Panto router.

Looks like it would be nice for a small production shop, but a hobby shop it might be overkill.

It’s called a Wirth Machine or a Matchmaker. It can do some cool stuff.

Sort of similar to a Multi-Router.

Available accessories and stuff here:

Based on Lorenz info this appears a cool little deal. With me it would depend on fast we can dovetail while maintaining strict tolerances because we often dovetail sets of drawers for our kitchens.
