terrible

I have had this for just over a year for hinge recessing work. have used for approx. 1 hrs work. it has started to rev up and down and is producing that wonderful burning smell along with reducing speed. The spindle lock has become broke and I had to remove it. I assumed trend would be the perfect machine. what a let down. I will now search for something strongly built suited to my tasks. £80 for a hrs use. avoid.

great for rounding over and edge-finishing commercially

bought two 115V versions in 2010 approx. Used in a commercial work shop .......Is the 115V electronics more reliable? ? ? ? Or are there good and bad batches? ? Still good for bearing guided and custom made fence guided rounding and edge finishing of any wood or "compact" a really tough solid "formica" board". Also Corian and other solid resin work surfaces. I immediately fitted 30 foot long power leads and they are only used for jobs suited to a £80 machine. speed control is above average

terrible piece of kit

got this to rout hinges out with a trespa jig but found the router bit is so far off centre it hits the template guide ,too much play on the slide columns, also after trying in vain to centre it decided to remove the router bit which resulted in the spindle lock failing, can not remove the bit at all , terrible engineering dont bother.

Trend response – We are sorry to hear that you have experienced some problems with the router. We would advise that if a customer has a problem with a Trend product that they should contact us so that we can advise of a possible solution. A light duty machine will be manufactured to a more open tolerance when compared to a medium duty router. We advise the plunge is locked at the depth when routing. With a detachable base router, the tolerance stack up will also lead to less concentricity between the guide bush and the router cutter. For this reason we advise a UNIBASE is used for greater accuracy. If the router is used on a hinge jg we also advise an adjustable 16mm guide bush is used ref GB/T4/160. This bush allows adjustment of the bush to the cutter. For greater accuracy and more precise plunge we would suggest our medium duty T5 router is used.

The spindle lock is a pressed steel plate that engages on two flats on the armature. If the spindle lock has not been depressed sufficiently or if the collet nut has been overtightened this can lead to premature wear on the spindle lock. If the router is within the warranty period then it can be returned to APTC and/or Trend under warranty. Please contact us and we would happy to discuss and work towards the best solution.

A complete waste of money

I bought this last week for light routing use. The motor control board failed after about 5 minutes of use. Axminster have promised a refund but do not seem to be taking this (apparently common) problem terribly seriously.


Trend response - We are sorry that the PCB has failed after little usage on the T4 router. If you any problems with a Trend product then we would advise that thould contact us so that we can advise of a possible solution. If a PCB has failed then it I may be due to a loose connection. If the router is within the warranty period then it can be returned to APTC and/or Trend under warranty. Please contact us and we would happy to discuss and work towards the best solution.

rubbish

Motor burned out on mine too. Stay clear of it


Trend response – Please accept my apologies for the failure of your T4 router. We would advise that if a customer has a problem with a Trend product that they should contact us so that we can advise of a possible solutionThe T4 is a light duty router for hobbyist, diyer and light trade use. The review does not give information as to the use of the machine. Any motor can fail due to a manufacturing fault, however one of the main causes of motor failure it can be if the machine has had too heavy use, leading to overloading and overheating. A carbon brush motor is designed for 20 minutes use in every hour, this is to allow for cooling. We can have the machine back at Trend to investigate further and it would be useful to have more information on its use. Please contact us and we would happy to discuss and work towards the best solution.
