    Default laminate trimmer

    Got a couple of bunnies vouchers for chrissy and still haven't thought of a way to use them.

    Maybe a trimmer?

    Has anyone used this one?

    I see it doesn't have the clear base like this one, but does that really bother the user? Would I regret it?

    I've got a cordless Ryobi trimmer and I find it's pretty handy for simple, quick roundovers or trims.

    I have the previous model Makita with full Metal casing, square base, and Bosch GMR1, the Makita height adjustment is manually turn the lower part, the Bosch has a fine screw adjustment, but I prefer the Makita manually turn base.

    I prefer using the Makita, it has a smoother vibration free motor, the Bosch has a slight vibration, If I was buying the ones you specified I would go for the one with the metal body and round base.

    Clear base makes no difference as your mainly using it with ball bearing bits running along the edges of the workpieces, I use it a lot and it saves a lot of time and gives a very nice finish to the edges, one big thing is to get good quality Australia / NZ, German or Italian made bits, don't waste your time with the chinese bits the cheap tungsten last's nowhere as long and are basically rubbish (no surprises there)

    I'd probably mostly use it for things like hinge check outs. Is the solid round base still fine?

    Had a feeling this was the desire. Interested in recos for this purpose too.
