Quoted from smokedog:
I would be interested in seeing pics and hearing specifics about the issues, as I am seriously looking at grabbing one to route. Sadly, none are around for me to try first.
I have owned 3 originals, and routed 2 of them. They gave me no more headaches than any other B/W from back in the day (except having to track down the air ball plastics needed for the tower tops).
this is the kind of news I want to hear! cant afford one myself yet after buying BDK so I'm looking forward to you getting another one on route
