    I think a man with 10 of ANYTHING isn't too worried about price

    "bought some Festool routers"... so is that ten SPARE DJ? .... maybe those other 10 didn't fulfil some existential need in the routing department

    ...

    DJ, Waldo needs a router! Be a maaaattteeee......

    Default Happy days!

    So I pulled the old brushes out again, had a look at the new and old and the older ones are worn so that they're concave on the contact ends (my limit of writing technically)

    Didn't realise the phone would focus on the table not the brushes, but you look real closely and jump up and down 10 times you'll see what I mean.

    So I popped the new one in, put everything back in place, hooked the power up and turned it on and I'm back in business. Woohoo? $27 fix and she's happy as Larry again.

    Let’s just say I don’t like changing bits. I’ve got some good respectable routers here. Never liked the tritons, think I have 3 of them, 1 is the one Chris needs and I also have 2 of the mof models as well I think.
    Cheers

    Thereís nothing wrong with having 10 routers; having recently given away two old Generic Made In Chinaís Iím down to only 9...

    Should a MOF become available itíll look good sitting between the JOF and the spare TRA that isnít sitting in the table....

    9 routers is a fairly good effort, certainly out of the hobbyist stage and into semi professional level.

    Well that didnít last long and stuffed up my plans in the shed this weekend.

    The router with its new brushes worked enough for me to do a dummy run with a bit, then it died. So itís something more than the brushes. $27 down the tube.

    So Iíll hang out for DJ.
