Hi all

I bought a heavy duty drill stand this week and instead of putting a drill in, I fitted a Trend T3 router.

It works perfectly. Set up was very quick and there is enough adjustment to lock the router into place. A cheap overhead routing capability.

The stand is the Faithfull heavy duty one that cost about 33 inc. vat.

Cheers
Neil

Anyone with the triton workcentre can do the same operation if they get the plate to carry a router . Used mine once for stopped dadoes on some bookcases I made three years ago.

For those who don't have the Trend focus on power tools leaflet, the T3 is on offer at £26.50 inc VAT. One of :tool:s on my to buy list for Tools 2005. :D
