Computer controlled
router 'Otocoup'

The ultimate (?) step of the do-it-yourselfer, this is to work with the help of a computer, CADIY... If your aim is to cut automatically the 1248 parts of the shelf needed for your Matchbox collection, to cut in vinyl letters of 2m high the strip for the next demonstration of your club, to sculpt a portrait of your well-beloved, to cut couples and sides of your fishing boat or to sculpt in massive teak your garden dwarfs, what you need is, as i have builded myself, a computer controlled router !
