Hey guys, I was wondering if you know of any cheap palm routers. All I seem to come across are the bosch and dewalt ones.

I don't want anything special, all I intend to do with it is use it in a homemade domino. As I'm sure you've seen on youtube.


TIA

Absolutely perfect, just what I wanted. In makita green too lol.

Cheers, I'm getting closer to having some form of a domino :)

You realise it's a makita clone right? I have the same real makita one it's very good.

As a result of this post I splurged a whole 35 quid on the Amazon deal - rude not to , I have had a Trend T5 for years now, but this looks like a handy tool for a quick or small job .

Yeah I know what you mean, I'm debating whether or not to buy a second so I can have the first dedicated to the peasant domino.

I've always been wary of cheap knock-offs so it would be interesting to know what your verdicts are.

Following up on this after mine arived next day after order.
Not used in anger yet too busy and working weekends:
- Makita copy
- Small print manual but detailed
- Rubber handgrip not perfectly fitted and some glue overspill
- Collet 1/4" and well finished
- No soft start
- Absolutely no vibration
- Variable speed works well
