AUKTools V3 Fixed Base Router (230v) with Musclechuck Quick Change Chuck Type 1

by AUKTools

The NEW 2019 Model is an industrial-quality router produced exclusively for Wood Workers Workshop to run on a UK and European 230v domestic power supply. Supplied with our Musclechuck Quick Change Chuck Type 1 and Hex wrench.

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.

This fixed base router is fully compatible with American style router lift systems such as the INCRA Mast-R-Lift II and JessEm 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.

Manufactured in the USA - the Musclechuck Quick Change Chuck allows you to change router cutters with ease and speed with one hand from above the router table. Features cam-lock design that clamps and loosens with a partial turn using the included 5/32, ball-end, hex key wrench.

Much quicker than the original two wrench method. Holds 12.7mm (1/2”) shanks – reduce to 8mm and 6.35mm (1/4”) with the Whiteside collet reducing sleeve. Please Note: The success achieved by tens of thousands of woodworkers with this chuck (over the last decade) relies on the full compliance with the manufacturer’s instructions – which are included with the chuck. When using this chuck it is absolutely imperative that the bit is not over tightened as this will lead to the cam-lock biting into the shank of the bit.

    AUK Fixed Base Router

    Router arrived safely and well packaged.
    It looks really well made and has great reviews
    Unfortunately not yet had time to use it because I am renewing the workshop roof.
    Will work well with the Incra Mast-R-Lift.

    AUKTools V3 Fixed Base Router (230v)

    I have received the AUKTools V3 Fixed Base Router (230v) and installed it in my Kreg router lift. Installation was a breeze. I was amazed at how quiet it is, considering its power rating.
    It has been used a few times in the last week and performs beautifully. Installing bits was easy with the supplied wrenches.
    Delivery from Wood Workers Workshop was fast and efficient. I'm glad I discovered them just recently from watching Peter Parfitt on New Brit Workshop.

    AUK Router Motor

    Bought this router to replace my Dewalt DW 625e router in my MJK Technology router lift from Axminster tools. I had to design and cut out new clamping rings to hold the new router, but it now fits perfectly. I no longer need a collet extension and can change cutters more easily above the table. The motor is powerful, surprisingly quiet and so far has performed without fault. The new speed control knob is easy to access and alters the speed smoothly.
    Much better than a fixed base router when installed in a table. Would definitely recommend.


    Strong and silent router , perfectly co-operates with JESS Mast-R-Lift Excel II.
    Thumbs up for Woodworkers Workshop - good communication.
