    Might be a bit over the top for what looks like an MDF / aluminium angle machine! Still, go for it if you can afford it - will last much much longer than any router.

    I'd be inclined to make the router sides a bit stronger. One economical / light way of doing this is to use two sheets of MDF (perhaps thinner) with a gap in between. That will make it much stronger in the direction parallel to the Y axis.
