I Thought I would put this up for sale in time for Black Friday. I have a Multi-Router that I am selling. It is in excellent shape. The Mult-Router system has been recognized as one of the most creative tools in the woodworking industry. Precision built and easy to utilize, the system is incredible accurate, reliable, and repeatable, making it a remarkable instrument for making all your joinery needs. This unit is built like a tank and weighs in at 151 lbs. per there web site. These units are used in high end hobby shops and productions shops for cabinetry and chair making to name a few.

Here are a few pictures to review. https://saginaw.craigslist.org/tls/6741803776.html

I wonder how many member are like me. I don’t see it’s usefulness nor how it would fit into my hobby workflow.

And it also strongly resembles Matthias Wandel’s patarouter which is far cheaper, even if you buy one of the complete kits. Is the multi-router any different/better?

for me looks like to much trouble to set up for a 2 minite cut plus after I finally would figure it out next time I would have to learn all over again but might just be me :<(((((((((((

i love it,your right though tony i never use it for one or two cuts but if you say make 10 chairs and need to make 60 identical parts it cant be beat.for a hobbiest that doesnt do large project or production it would be hard to justify the cost.definitely a high quality tool though.

I used to enjoy watching David Marks’ woodworking show. He regularly used the Multirouter in his workflow. It is an amazing piece of equipment. I coveted one until I saw the price tag. Definitely not for a hobby type shop. Pottz is absolutely correct. For repeated cuts it would be worth its weight in gold.

To address a couple of comments, the MR is a lot heavier duty commercial grade machine (151 lbs.) and built to last a life time. The Matthias Wandel’s patarouter was designed off of the MR and is made of wood? He also makes a wood band saw among other wood spin off tools. Basically not a fare comparison to compare to. But he is a great engineer and I like his site.

The MR does a lot of things, not only does it do regular mortising, lose tendon mortising, angle mortising, angle tendons, but it also does box joints, and dove tails to name a few. And to do what it does in terms of repeatability and set up it saves a lot of time and accuracy from other contemporary ways of trying to make some of these complicated joints. The MR is not for everyone as it is a pricy machine but as far as accuracy, repeatability and ease of use it really saves time and is a way to advance your woodworking skills. Like most wood working there is lots of ways to do things. This tool is a game changer for most people that use them, that’s way they don’t come up for sale. I am downsizing or I would be keeping it. And its about 1/2 price of new which is hard to beet. (See past posts as I just sold my 5hp dust collector, 38’’ drum sander, spindle sander, drill press to name a few)

Not sure if you know who Dave Marks is but he uses one in a lot of his videos and loves it.
