I have to cut a 2mm wide slot around the edge of a 15mm thick square of low
density particle board (with wood-effect finish both sides) in order to fit
plastic edge beading which has a toothed strip for wedging into the slot.
I want it to look good and be a close and even fit without the beading
I'd appreciate some guidance on how to best achieve this.
Machine Mart list a Wolfcraft 3120 'Super Wood Shaper' and a 3001 'Wood
Shaper' for attachment to electric drills -- would these be suitable for
what I want to achieve? Or something completely different? If I have to buy
some gear I'd rather it be useful for other jobs as well!
Any help TIA

A cheap router can be had for as little as 15 quid. If you want a tool
to keep and use for other jobs then it would be worth spending a bit
A router is a very versatile tool so you will probably be able to find
good uses for it in the future. (you could use it to make the edging
strip as well if you want - might look better in hardwood than plastic!)
