AUKTools - Fixed Base Router Mk II with Remote Speed Controller and NVR - 230V

Regular price £344.95


AUKTools - Fixed Base Router Mk II with Remote Speed Controller and NVR - 230V - New for 2017, an industrial-quality router produced exclusively for Wood Workers Workshop to run on a UK and European 230v domestic power supply.

Now available with a unique pre-wired variable speed remote controller unit, isolator and NVR (No Volt Release) switch.

This is the first fixed base router available in the UK that delivers the power and quality that the American router lifts require to deliver their full potential - all designed to work on a UK domestic power supply with a UK plug! The heavy-duty industrial-quality 2.4 HP, 1800V motor offers a variable-speed control and premium NSK bearings for extended life and minimal cutter vibration. 

This router is a unique design - by woodworkers for woodworkers - tried and tested in our own workshops.

Safety First!

  • Take control - no more scrambling under the table trying to find the controls for your router - operate the router's on/off switch and variable speed smoothly and safely from your remote controller unit
  • NVR (No Volt Release) switch - this means that if you suffer power loss, your router will not restart until you manually switch it back on
  • The emergency stop button locks on and can only be released when you physically twist to unlock it - allowing you to isolate your router whilst you change cutters

Easy to Use

  • Locate your remote controller unit wherever suits you - on the wall; on the side of your router table ...
  • Plenty of cable to play with - 1.3 metres between the router and the remote controller unit, plus 2.8 metres between the remote controller unit and the power supply
  • Particularly useful to owners of the Incra Clean Sweep box and Insert Rings as the fully enclosed router is now controllable outside the box

This fixed base router is fully compatible with American style router lift systems such as the INCRA Mast-R-Lift II and therefore allows for precise and easy adjustment of cutter height without any cutter length loss below the table. The motor shaft and auto-release collet raises above the table for easy cutter change with the supplied spanners. The soft start variable speed control is sealed for reliability in the hard working environment of router table or CNC machines, and is engineered to maintain constant speed under load.

This router is designed specifically for use with router lifts and CNC machines that require a 106mm (4.2") - diameter router. AUKTools fixed base router is not to be used free hand.

    Great piece of kit.

    This router motor really is just what many woodworkers outside the U.S.A. have been waiting for! Using a plunge router in a table even with a overhead elevator mechanism seems an unnecessary compromise. It functions perfectly in my Incra set up and was straight forward to install in the Mast R Lift plate. The motor is smooth and vibration free and the noise level is very acceptable. I do find the remote speed control and switch makes it a dream to use compared with fiddling from below. An 8 m.m. nut and collet would be a nice accessory.
    The service and advice from Woodworkersworkshop is all one could wish for and I can thoroughly recommend them.


    I ordered this motor along with the Jessem Mast-R-Lift II. The motor feels reassuringly solid, and the lift is a thing of beauty. The two fit together perfectly, and I have installed them without problem in my Kreg router table. The only thing that is less than perfect is that I have been unable to find the Jessem insert plate levellers to make the installation feel more secure. (my Kreg levellers don't align with the screw holes for attaching the plate). I like having the NVR switch and speed control, which I have mounted above the table, at the back - no more fiddling about underneath. Service from WWW was rapid, postage very reasonably priced, and the attention to detail in the packaging remarkable and much appreciated. One day I must stop simply staring in admirartion at this superb machinery, and actually use it!

    Fixed router with all the trimmings.

    I have been long awaiting the arrival of this product and have not been disappointed. Easy to fix in the appropriate lift mechanism and with the easy change of router cutters all done without having to scramble about underneath the table. With the remote speed control and switch gear fixed to the front of the table everything is at hand. I positioned it in such a way that it can be switched off in an emergency with my right knee. The motor seems to have plenty of power .very happy customer and delivery was prompt as ever.
