Sorry a bit rusty at this posting lark, I was replying to RW post!
"strangely enough the router as we know it was invented by Eli Lutz guess what his tool company was called? Elu and Dewalt are owned by the same conglomerate (you wouldn't credit what the main brand is) and are essentially the same tools. I have Dewalt, Elu and Hitachi power tools and I reckon all three ( or is it two) Brands. the Elu/Dewalt interests me cos I can get a bracket to fit on my Radial Arm saw to hold the router which I feel is kinda nifty.
I guess I'll be taking a Couple of catalogues to the North sea with me next time"
I would go for Elu, but what would I know in my trade!
