Why spend the money to buy a separate laminate trimming router and spiral cutout saw when you can purchase one tool that will do both? Marvel — an MLCS brand — makes a motor-driven cutting tool with interchangeable bases and collets that allow you to route, cut, grind, and even engrave.
Spinning at a fixed 30,000 rpm, the Marvel 40 3-in-1 router features 1/4″ and 1/8″ collets as well as interchangable bases that combine to allow both routing and spiral cutting. With the 1/8″ collet you can attach the spiral cutting bits used in most spiral cutout saws, while the 1/4″ collet is a standard size for many router bits. The Marvel comes with a laminate trimmer base, but an included freehand sole plate base turns the Marvel into a cut out saw, too. A plunging and tilting router base handles routing tasks.
Also included in the kit are a circle cutting attachment for cutting circles up to 12″ in diameter, a straight edge guide, and a 1/8″ spiral cut-out bit. The kit comes in a plastic case for easy storage and transport.
