You’ll be able to get a heavier 3 phase model pretty cheap. Nobody
wants them anymore. I have a single phase RU50 which is a little
hard to find.

Check the auction sites and things like that.

The power of a belt drive pin router is formidable compared to
a brush type router motor.

Craigslist in Texarkana has one. Big old American iron.

An old 3 phase, freq router motor could eat any belt-drive for lunch. These are screamin’ machines that will not stop or bog down. I have both kinds in the shop and there is no comparison between the 9.5 hp belt drive and the 5 hp freq. Even at half speed and hp rating, my old Onsruds are invincible. They’re also built like Bismarks. I have two (1947 and 1961)

The noise level however at high speed is truly intolerable.

Not sure how large of a machine you’re looking for, but my Delta/Rockwell 43-503 is a little on the small side. It does have decent power with a 230V motor and the option of mounting the motor on the bottom of the table or over head. They don’t seem to come up too often, but might be one option to consider.

Have your say...
