I got some bad news for you. Hitachi / Metabo just announced worlds first cordless plunge router - 36V - 1/2" collet - 6.6lbs just a little heavier than 1010.

If I were doing decks and needed large bits, this would be on my list for sure. there's no competition currently. they also have a mains adapter for all their cordless tools, which is also no competition

If you are in UK, there is literally no point in messing around with 1/4" bits unless you already have a huge collection from the times past. That is why OF1010 does not include the 1/4" collet in Europe and you can purchase it separately only.

8mm is the standard one these days with 6mm used for the specialist trimming bits which are not made in 8mm for size reasons.

There is literally no task the OF1010 can do you will not find 8mm bits for. All kinds of bits at 8mm are widely available at good prices once you search for them. It is twice (8/6,35^3=1,99x) as strong compared to a 1/4 shank and small enough to fit all but the smallest trim routers.

The mentioned CMT compound bits are excellent for commercial use but also do browse the Festool accessories and their officially compatible bits for the OF1010 on their web. It is very good if for anything to see what selection of sizes is available and considered safe for the OF1010.

CMT offers 8 mm router bits with replaceable knives. That could be the charm if you do lots of decks. Just stock up on the inserts and swap them out when dull. The inserts are also 2 sided so you just flip them around for double the cutting edges.
That's news to me, thank you.

I have 1/2" shank insert bits from Amana in my big Milwaukee routers and a couple of smaller 1/4" shank from Infinity, but an 8mm version would be great.

Ya, I love all 4 of the Festool routers I have but there's something to be said for the Milwaukee 2 1/4 HP BodyGrip┬« and their 3 1/2 HP production router. I just have a hard time giving those up.  [smile]  Maybe sometime soon, I'm working on it.

Yeah, ever since I discovered the Body-Grip routers, I have had a couple of them. Not only is that shape and strap design really stable feeling, the clam-shell case is great too. Plus, like Festool, they have nice forged wrenches, not that stamped steel garbage, that everyone else has.
They are my preferred routers for solid surface work for sure. The biggest draw-back to them is dust collection. I do have an aftermarket base plate that attempts to do what the chip catcher on the OF1400 does, but it's not as good at it.
