This is my Hitachi 12V router. 3 1/2 hp, variable speed with soft start. A great router For $199 but now they have dropped the price to $140. I have welded an extension on the locking handle which makes it much easier to lock and unlock depth control. Also notice that a router bit extension is installed in the router. This adds 2" to cutting depth and also makes bit installation MUCH easier! See http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/routraiz.htm#xtreme_anchor for more information. Legacy was testing these to see if they were going to carry them. I consider them a mandatory accessory though there is one down side. If your bearings are worn the bit extension will aggravate the problem so you will have to replace router bearing more often.
1800 with the Moffatt light installed. All I had to do was drill a
1/4" hole through the mounting base and screw to existing threaded hole in
1800 carriage. Light uses up to 100 watt bulb and heat sinks keep it
cool. Gooseneck is stiffer than any others I have found an holds location
you move it to in spite of machine vibration. Happy enough with it that I have
bought 3 for my lathes . I get mine from a turning club member and he can

. Also the plunge bar from http://www.thecraftsmangallery.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?
is a great accessory. I had narrow it by 1/2" to fit the Y axis carriage.
