Topic tags/keywords: router

I used it about 3 times before I bought my Festool 1400 and I haven’t touched it since so it needs to quit taking up valuable space and stop collecting dust.

I don’t know where the collet wrenches have gone to along with the fixed base that came with it but, I’ve just been using my adjustable and a box end.

Selling for $100 plus the $25 for shipping I bought it last year for $149 with tax and shipping and another $75 for the D Handle base.

Any questions or anything just message me, oh and it comes with that Freud bit in it also I have a bunch of extras already and that was a loose one hanging around.

If it were me, I’d keep it as you’re bound to need more than one router if you’re going to do much wood working.

It is a great router Jim and I did enjoy using it the few times I did.

Hillbilly I already have 4 routers, the Milwaukee 5625 in my table, the Festool 1400 and 1010 and I have a small trim router, the D handle isn’t required as the Festool have the same feel of control as this does with better adjustment and plunge action, granted they cost about 3-4 times the price but, IMO worth it.

Don’t disagree on the 1400 as I have two (2) of them, and I also have eight (8) others. There are times when all have a bit and are set up for projects I have going. Just saying is all. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I love my Milwaukee. I am sure it will find a good home with someone who knows a good router when they see one.

But, I can understand it not getting much use if you have an OF1400 EQ!!!!
