The addition of a Proxxon OFV will turn a mini-drill or grinder into a very useful miniature router which may be well suited to toy making or dolls house projects. The base is made from die-cast aluminium with a milled working surface and a fence is also included with a maximum throat depth of 150mm. In addition, there is an interchangeable circle guide. The router base has an adjustable bench stop with a pre-selectable travel stroke. It can also be used as a drilling guide for round parts as a triangular prism is provided in the work base.

A lot better than expectedI have to slightly agree and disagree with Mr Parker. My router base also stuck, a lot as it happens. On examination I found that the depth stop threaded rod was not verticle and was catching on the side of the hole in the plunger. I couldn't remove the rod so I drilled the hole bigger. The hole was 7mm so I used a 7.5mm drill bit to enlarge the hole. This was enough to stop the plunger catching on the rod.

not german engineeringThe build is rough and to be honest very poor mine sticks about 1" down on the plunge the depth stop needs serious re design, the springs are very weak ,casting is rough and the drill(proxxon 50/e) is very difficult to fit. In conclusion IMHO this is not german engineering would I buy again no
