In Detail

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 expected

I 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.

Although this helped a lot the plunger was still a bit jerky. So I removed it again and looked down the plunger rod holes. I saw quite a bit of black stuff on the sides of the holes, probably was whatever the plunger rods are coated with. So I rolled a piece of sandpaper into a tube and pushed it down the holes, a little pushing, pulling and twisting cleaned out the inside of the holes nicely. I also applied a little grease to the plunge rods.

Now the router base is perfect, it goes up and down very smoothly. I inserted a drill bit and drilled 4 holes in a piece of 38mm x 64mm cls, just to test it. All 4 holes were a perfect 90 degrees, so it makes a very handy plunge drill too.

I disagree that the springs are too weak, mine are strong enough to lift the drill up, but not so strong that it is an effort to push the drill down. To me this makes them perfect for the job. Everything else about it is engineered very well, it was just the two problems mentioned above that let it down. However, they took only a few minutes to fix and now I am very happy with the router base.

I have dropped one star because I should not have had to fix the above problems, it should have been done in the factory.

So would I buy one again? I've already got one on my wish list. I've got a small solid wood table that is surplus to requirements. I think that if I drill 4 holes in the bottom of the router base I could attach it underneath the table and make a nice little router table, or sander if I use sanding drums.

not german engineering

The 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
