    Hi

    It's not been used yet in production. So i don't class it as second hand.
    It also comes with a router mount and an extra collects, these alone at there cheapest i think will cost you 60.
    thanks

    Correct me if i'm wrong but the kress units come with 10 years guarantee. I think I mentioned this in the above post already.

    Why not the water cooled spindle? You've seen first hand how Kress router's wont last...

    You could well get it in under a week from them. I ordered a VFD from one of those sellers and it came within a few days.

    If you're desperate:

    Make sure you get the one with ER20 collets not smaller.

    Hi well that's good for you but I am sure someone will see the benefit in not having to finance a router mount etc.

    also it sounds like you might have been pushing the kress router too hard as this is the first report i've heard out of about 20 that the kress has failed on them.

    the only other report i can remember was of someone who was using it to cut aluminum when kress is branded as wood router..also one of the reasons I upgraded is that without any cooling jacket its not really a good idea to have your router on for continuous periods:S

    why don't you return it to Germany and inform kress of your break down?
