The £25 router looks great value. Not only a good selection of accessories but a pretty reasonable spec. Looks about equal to the Titan router at Screwfix for £50. There is a review of the titan router on the screwfix site that states they threw away their awful workzone router and replaced it with the Titan router which is much, much better but the older workzone router was terrible. This one;

The current workzone router actually looks like a cosmetic variation of the titan router. Obviously all these routers are sourced from low cost factories in China but the titan/workzone one looks respectable. £25 for a router seems unbelievably good value but there are limitations. 1250W is low power for a plunge router. Probably no soft-start or constant speed under load. Probably not the product to use to fit a new kitchen. I don't know if it has a 1/2" collet and maybe that would be too much for the motor. It just says 3 collets. I'm guessing at least 1/4", 6mm and possibly 8mm although Titan has 1/2" I'm not sure thats a wise inclusion for a 1250W motor.

Comparing it to Bosch's entry level router which is only 1200W, the workzone model does have a precision height adjuster not on the Bosch. I wouldn't assume the Bosch is superior in quality either as they source a lot of stuff now from Chinese factories.

The workzone router bits also available from Thursday maybe poor quality though as was previously reported for them unless they have changed supplier. You have a fighting chance with router bits to know if they are good quality by visual inspection. Normally if they look poorly manufactured they are, poor surface finish etc.

Dont think it has IPS/IDS built in either.

I have these 3 items (Router, table and bits), it's ok for the odd small job but certainly no good for a new solid oak kitchen worktop butt join :)

It doesn't have the power or precision in my honest opinion.

Bit big for just a router isn't it? My Sky router is only tiny.

£29.99 is about the price this router table is every year at Aldi so it is not a bargain just a useful bit of toot to put in your cupboard along with the likes of the sandwich maker.

Does the router table handle IPv4 as well as IPv6? Chuckle.

Proveright

I don't need one right now, so I'll set my alarm for next year.
Thanks for the heads up.
#18
quickly read this as "routing table" (IT networking folk will know what I mean)
#19
OSI Layer 3 compatible...
#20
sometimes i type stuff
#21
Went in to get this and ended up picking up some clamps for £4.99. Four clamps for £4.99! Not bad.
#22
Picked up the router and router table as well as a toolbox that had been further discounted from an earlier offer that had been unsold. This was the Weston super mare store. They had a lot of stock of both. Not had time to look at either yet though.
#23
massive thanks OP, been looking for a cheap as chips router for a while for a couple of small diy bits. picked up the router and bit set today in Swindon, top stuff :)
#24
I've had a good look at the router now. Although configured with a 30mm guide bush the collets supplied are only 1/4", 6 and 8mm so not suitable for kitchen fitting as no 1/2" collet or 12mm available. That is the main limitation. The trigger switch is lockable on but then I guess this was pretty obvious as it is sold as compatible with the aldi router table but many routers have safety lock off. Fantastic value at £25 but for kitchen fitting you will need a 1/2" router.
