hi guys,
new to this so i was wondering if anyone can give me any suggestions to a cheap router that i can use with it because both recommended were only available in the u.s. and i live in the uk so...

thanks!

I don't know what they use in the OX (you've not said or provided links) but how about a Kress spindle, have you looked at those? What are you hoping to cut on the OX?

Sorry they use a bosch colt 1.0 and the link is here: http://openbuilds.org/builds/openbuilds-ox-cnc-machine.341/

This katsu trimmer appears to be a cheap copy of the maktia router/trimmer. none of the amazon reviews are terrible so it might work ok for 43.

If you want a Bosch, Screwfix are selling the Bsch GKF600 for 100

That one is a bit out my current price range but it is defiantly something to look at in the future!
