Thinking of changing Kress router

Post by daibeer »

Hi all,
I use at the moment a Kress 1050 and it is OK but wish it had a bit more uumph to it. I was watching the paid adverts on sky this morning and saw the Twist a Saw. It seemed quite powerful but I have no specs on it apart from Spindle speed (25,000). My questions are (1) Does anyone use it for CNC and (2) Is the neck a euroneck size ? if not what size is it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Dai

I'm not familiar with the Twist-a-Saw, when searching the specs it reflects a 550 watt motor, which is less than your Kress 1050. Based on that alone, I would not consider it an upgrade.

Looking at the specs and quality the Kress is way ahead on all counts.
