Design faults to be aware of, compared with the Bosch original.The original Bosch model had a better quality motor, Scintilla I think, as opposed to the apparently Chinese one now supplied. I bought it because it can be used with a drill stand or suchlike, for overhead routing, or jigged to the cross-slide on the Myford for more elaborate procedures.

T3 and T4 RoutersI have had one each these models. I bought the second after the motor on the first burnt out (admittedly after a few years' use) because of the price and it seemed suitable for trimming work. Now the second motor has gone as well. The power rating was raised between the two versions but it seems that it is still not enough. I was only trimming thin (~ 12mm) wood on both occasions. I don't think I will be buying a third one.

terribleI 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 commerciallybought 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 kitgot 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.
