These are really useful and easy to adjust.
More versatile than just a laminate trimmer.
In my mate’s workshop he uses it in preference to his Festool (which he might have sold by now)
I use mine for cutting hinge mortises and all sorts of little routing tings.
If you’re only using very occasionally something like this.
I presume that cheap excel router would be up to cutting chases in 18mm OSB?
I would say it depends on the amount of material you’re trying to remove in one pass, how big a chase are you cutting?
OSB has a lot of glue and some of the wood in it can be v resinous and hard.
Top tip; use a v sharp TCT bit and listen to the motor to see if it’s bogging down.
When I was at art school the head technician in the workshops was famous for asking ‘what’s the application’ whenever you asked to borrow a tool, but I get where he was coming from -grumpy old bastard.
