If i am going to buy, id choose the 12V variety with the bullet magazine type battery. LED light is standard nowadays i guess. Bosch is nice and locally available. I just wish they have at least 3.0A batts for these cutees!
I think i was a woodworker in my previous life...and the life previous to that.

I got a Bosch GDR 120, performance is ok :thumbup: Aside from driving screws, I used it to drill a 1/2 holes into steel flat bar using a stepped drill bit. Pretty noisy compare to ordinary drills.

The GDR 120 is part of GDR GSR Combo kit which I bought from Lazada. Got it during Lazada's sale in May for 4,999. Pretty good deal since the GDR 120 alone sells for around 5K.

The price was 4,499 during last month's sale :crazy: Now it's 5,499. There's an upcoming Lazada sale next week, so price might drop again.

I've had this idea in my head for a long time now. Main problem is sourcing the knife and stem. Allen keys or bent screwdriver for the knife? What else?

Image

A shop made marking gauge. Works pretty well, but i have to work on the looks part and ergonomics more a bit. Maybe the stem is a little too thin, but i wanted to make sure i could heat it to glowing red to be able to bend it. Will try 3/16 thick screwdriver next time. Lucky are those with a real brazing torch.

Edit: With an angle grinder or a dremel with cut-off wheel, hopefully with a carbide drill bit... i think i can make a wheel marking gauge... any ideas?

there are HSS for stems in Binondo, not sure of length. Maybe some carbide inserts for knife.

Was rummaging through the bodega/garage and i found a 12"X 24" cabinet; came from a condo. (Condo out-fitters must be tired of the stuff and hafele hardware.) The dimension looks right for a router table.

Simple router table. Wala pa fence, pero natuwa na ako sa test cut. Of course i did the rookie mistake of putting the hole in the very center, sayang yung real estate. Mapupunta lang sa likod ng future fence.

Test cut. The small m4 bolts were upgraded to 3/16"; there are three. I had a tap the aluminum base.

Hirap ergonomics and coarse adjustment. Pero madali micro thanks to the after-lock feature.

Still, naiinis ako at di ko inoffset yung hole! ~6" lang yung depth tuloy from edge to bit. Will use it as it is and redo it when a project that needs the extra space crops up.

You should have bought the 5k Triton since you were planning for an RT.

You can clamp a wider board on top to remedy. I believe that Bosch router collet can go high up enough to cover 3/4" thick edge trimming chores.

So it will work with my 1827 then. I read somewhere it's not meant to run upside down.

Thanks for the offer brader but unfortunately the family plans to continue with the painting this weekend.
