    FS: Hitachi TR12 3 HP plunge router & accessories

    I'm selling my TR-12. It has seen modest use over the past 15 years or so. Comes with several accessories:

    Metal Hitachi case
    fine adjusting knob-gives accuracy similar to a fixed base router and allows adjustment under a table.
    1/4", 3/8" collet adapters, 1/2" collet
    fence for curved cuts
    fence for straight cuts
    1/2" template guide
    plate for standard [P-C, Freud etc.] templates

    $125 plus actual shipping [about 20# from zip 13346]

    PM or email for any info.

    Thanks.
    Ken

    Ken,

    How does the fence for curved cuts work? I have never heard of one of those for a router.

    If you look at the photo with the accessories, it's the part with a wheel on it. It connects to the fence, and the wheel rolls along the outside of the surface. It fits on the fence in place of the straight guide. Does that make sense?

    Sean, the curve guide thing actually works fairly well, almost too well, cause if there is even a little dimple in the template, there will be one in your finished work.......DAMHIKT!!

    That is a great router at a great price, if I'd not just put new bearings in my M12, I'd buy that from you in a heartbeat Ken!

    If anyone is looking for a WORKHORSE for your router table, buy this and one of them variable speed box things the they sell and you are set, oh and the Router Raizer, for above the table adjustments (I think it fits?).

    Good strong router, at a good price!

    Cheers!

    Stu, you gave me a good idea. I'll throw in a variable speed router controller for an extra $25.
    Thanks, Ken

    $150 for a great workhorse router, with speed control, what a deal!

    I'd buy it, but I've got just about exactly the same set up, and I don't need two.

    Cheers!
