Kevin,

Very good information.  I'm still thinin' about this.  I like the size and features of the Colt, but keep wondering about the quality.

Thanks and regards,

Dan.

If you're just after a small, light trimmer router, why not go for the OFK500? It's about 2/3rds the price of the OF1010, too.

Or is it NAINA?

OK, that's it.  We in North America have to launch a counter-attack, and taunt those in Australia and Germany and Great Britain by waving in front of them all the tools we have here that they don't have.  Now, can someone help me pinpoint which tools these are?

Forget the Bosch and go for the Lamello Lamina http://www.colonialsaw.com/lamello/laminae.html

Sure at $600 why not buy two!

Brice,

Ya beat me to it.   It's lovely, looks relatively small, and has built-in dust collection.   As you mentioned, there's just one itsy, bitsy, teeney, tiny issue!  8)

Hi,

    I am wondering if the Festool trim router with hose attached is "tippy"?  It seems that the weight of the hose would tend to pull the router off track. Being  light, tall, and not having a real handle, etc.

Thanks Dan.  Nothing quite like dangling unavailable tools in front of our noses!  :) :) :)

I wouldn't worry too much about the quality.  Pat Warner is pretty good with routers and he comments that the Bosch is a good unit.  Get some subbases from Pat and you'll likely be set.

Dave,

If you think that's bad, take a look at the new MFK700!   Joiner1970 posted a link here: http://festoolownersgroup.com/index.php?topic=1661.0.  It looks a trim router that can be used in both the horizontal AND vertial orientation.   It's pricey, but looks very tasty.   (Jonny Round Boy will go crazy with this one. This is WAY too much ammunition! ::) )

Well, look at it this way.  This is an invitation to a little humility.  I mean, we think we're at the center of the world, right -- well, we're actually a disadvantaged Festool nation if you want to think of it that way.  It should make us a little more manageable.
