Hi all...
Looking at a Stanley 1287 router ....asking £95 with cutters etc....would anyone think it’s wirth the money?. Seeing as I presume it’s old could it be refurbished if required.

Cheers for comments

are you wanting it because you want a router, or because it is a vintage item?

if I just wanted a router, I would choose something more modern either new or used. Bearings can probably be replaced, but anything electrical is going to be difficult.

To much for and old router. Older Elu can be excellent but I'd save for something new.
