Erbauer ERB380ROU 2100W Router 230-240V
Great tool!, Issue though?
Being new to the routing world and know that I had a a lot of lap joints to cut out to support the floor beams in the shed I'm building, I took from info gained from web searches and other advice that I needed a router with a bit of power behind it so I'm so glad I went for this one even though it's physical size makes it look like quite a handful, l found it easy to handle, a pleasure to use.
One slight issue though, the Philips screws which hold the smooth base plate of the router to itself where it runs over what ever your routing, seem to shake loose with the tools vibration.
Anyone else had this problem?.
I know you can re-tighten them in a heartbeat with the right screw driver and I suppose it may be designed like this so the screws come out easy on purpose to say, attach to a router table perhaps?.
My star score has been slightly affected by this small issue but otherwise a great, seemingly very powerful tool which I look forward to using lots.

This product seems to get a lot of good reviews, and I certainly thought it was worth buying on offer. However, when I got it out of the box to try it out, I discovered that the fine adjustment knob was seized solid. So back to the store I went and got a second machine (no faulting screwfix service there). When I got this machine out, I found that there was a ridiculous amount of lateral play in the plunge mechanism. Lord knows what sort of a wonky cut it would have produced. I didn't even bother trying to use it. Back it went for a refund.
It is obvious that some people are happy with these, but buyer beware, the factory obviously decided to save money by employing YOU the customer as their quality control checker!!

Good router apart from the fact i do a lot of work tops and found that the bush guide is only 27mm instead of 30mm, and i cant find a replacement due to the large base diameter so it only used for other work now.

Nice bit of kit
Good sturdy machine at a good price with plenty of accessories to get stuck in straight away. Very comparable with routers that cost much more. Haven't used the machine much, hence the lower star rating for performance and reliability, but I'm pretty confident so far that there will not be any issues.
