    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?

    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!
