Selling on behalf of a colleague who has taken forced retirement on health grounds.

I have for sale a Festool OF2200eb 1/2in plunge router <230 volts>, approximately 2-1/2 years old, unused for last 6 months. This has only been used on kitchen worktop joints and has done about a dozen or so private kitchen jobs (no site jobs) in its' lifetime so it's very little used, in excellent condition and very clean. Has always been cleaned and stored indoors in the house when not actually in use.

Comes with the standard phenolic sub-base, dust deflector, 30mm guide bush, 1/2in and 1/4in collet/nut sets, 24mm wrench and manual - the full set of bits and pieces that a new router comes with and I've checked it against my own to be certain. Complete in Systainer 5. The Systainer has a few signs of wear and tear (minor, cosmetic) and the sub-base has a few minor, inevitable scratches from use which do not affect the tool in use. Otherwise absolutely pristine.

Never a cheap tool, these routers are currently sold at circa £600 new (best street price) with dealers asking £630 and up. The asking price for this one is £395, although open to reasonable offers. Can deliver in Greater Manchester, East Lancashire and West Yorkshire areas or ship at cost using My Hermes, etc. I'd have had it myself but for the fact that I require 110 volt tools for site use, so offered here first at a price below anything you'll find on eBay today (I've checked). The OF2200eb is absolutely the best large router I've ever used and a bargain at the asked price IMHO

Having problems with my camera cable today so I can't post photos ::b - will post tomorrow, though

We talked it through the other day and it's priced to (hopefully) sell. I've already got a 110 volt one and it's a bloody marvellous piece of kit.

I have the feeling that your understanding of what carpenters and joiners actually do with heavy routers is a bit awry, B-A. Not being American I've rarely had the urge to strap a good plunge router under a table and diminish it's capabilities when any cheap old piece of tat could be used to do that job instead. What this router excels at is the professional stuff like routing housings for stairs, cutting worktop joints, working Corian (a sure fire router killer), heavy rebating, heavy moulding in situ, etc where real power is required and a single pass cut is often the norm :thumbright: In any case I though that you didn't see the need for 1/2in routers...... :roll: :lol:

1/2 are essential :lol:
but most off the stuff i do tends to be country style pine furniture so roundover champer rebate which are easilly done with a hand held and router matt
but i do make my own moulding and doors but using the m12v without fine adjustment is a pain in the arris so discourages its use hence the question about fine adjustment :lol:

That's a steal for someone needing a router.

yeee ha thanks :thumbright:

-- Wed Jan 11, 2017 2:25 pm --

thank you j&n arrived today as promised :huray:
stunning tool really can see why people rave about the quality and how well thought out and easy to use
if you are using them day in day out they can easily pay for themselves in satisfaction and a bit faster productivity
wouldn't recommend if money is an issue or little used but highly recommend for ease off use and quality :thumbright:
