In need of a 1/2 router to run in a sled to surface table tops / chopoing boards. Can anyone recommend something that's solid and accurate enough for this? It don't need to be a great all round router, literally just going to use for surfacing and may edging with a template trim on the very rare occasion.

If youre going to use a wide surfacing bit, a cheap router might be a false economy.
I bought a router for just that purpose, and not all that cheap, but there was play in the bearings and no matter what I tried I got tram lines across the wood. It was fine for everyday routing but no good for my needs.
I now use a Trend router that cost twice the price of the Powerplus.
