If you do solid surface work you have to take the time to look at this NEW Tiltable Plunge Router from Virutex. In all the years I have been selling tools I have never seen a more versitile router than this FRE317s. It routs vertically and horizontally so producing cove back splashes has never been easier. It trims edges and tops with any router bit and, with an optional straght edge accessory it will produce perfect drainboard cuts. It will even make repair cuts across the deck and up the splash! When you watch the video you will see even more uses for its versatility. If you think you have seen it all I say you are mistaken. Watch the video ( it's in Spanish but you'll get the idea) and you'll see what I mean.
The accessories listed are not available yet but will be soon.If you plan to cove with this router I would suggest our "winged" cove bit model L06-P3870
