Harbor Freight Bauer Router

Is anyone using the Bauer compact router from HF? https://www.harborfreight.com/14-in-65-amp-variable-speed-compact-router-64944.html

I just wanted to check and see if anyone has any setup info or mods for this router before I put in a lot of work.


The biggest issue I see is going to be the z-axis. I would make sure that it will work with the approach you have in mind.

I am using a modified “meticulous Z-axis” with linear rails instead of rods. I was able to 3D print a sleeve for the Bauer Router so I could utilize an existing mount. Now it is time to test it out.

could you post a picture of your z axis setup?

Not the greatest pic, but you may get the idea.
