Small router


I'm looking for a router that's bigger than a laminate trimmer but smaller than, say, a PC 690. I looked at a PC 0310 but didn't like the collet arrangement. (not self releasing). Have any ideas? Thanks,
Max D.

Does anyone know of a small router manuf or supplier. Would like to get one with a flap that would allow to work along a straight edge. Many thanks again...

Bosch may advertise it as a small router but I don't see any difference between it and some of the laminate trimmers out there. Its the same size motor and configuration.

If I was going to do that, I'd want the Heritage version...not to use.. just to put on my mantle.... or use it as a key-chain.

Looks very interesting. Wish I could get my hands on one for a closer look. Thanks.

yeah, me too. It's obviously a cheap router, but whether the quality is worse than the price is hard to tell without some hands-on. if you do get one, please let us know how it works out.

I ordered one on a sort of "what the heck" impulse. I'll post my impressions as soon as I've had a chance to try it out.

At the last wood show I attended, Trend was selling something looked a lot like that, for a similar price.
But I have plenty of routers, for now. The next one is likely to be a Festool, or something equally spendy, just to tick off Larry.

Hey, Bosch just put out the little 1hp router for $99, or $119 with variable speed controls. Why pay more, ya sick rich bastihd? ;)

I just bought a Ridgid laminate trimmer to do some inlay work and to occasionally run a round over bit. It comes with the PC-size opening to mount a brass bushing. Also has the soft start feature and adjustable speed. It was $99.99 at the BORG. So far I've been quite happy with it. This mini-router fits nicely into the growing router arsenal which includes a Hitachi M12V that stays in my router table and a Skil 1 1/2 HP plunger. The collet on the Ridgid is a two wrench system.
