weatherstripping router

Hi all, Im looking for the trim router with the special attachment that lets you cut a slot in the corner of a door jamb at the stop for inserting bulb type weatherstripping. The weatherstrip supplier sellsone for 1200.00 $ and all it is is a dewalt trimmer router wih a corner attachment (clever) for getting straight into the corner. The router cost approx 200.00$ so I cant see paying 1200.00$ for what shouldn't cost more than 400.00$ Anyone have one used or knows who makes one more resonably priced. Thanks

Sounds like the weatherstrip company is a little over priced.

When you say attachment do you mean an attachment to the router or a bit?

I suggest you got to a tool store in your area. Home centers like Home depot or lowes won't carry specialty items and if they can order them, it may take a while.

There has to be a tool speciality store in your area. They are stores that sell only tools. They should have the same set up as the weather strip company.

Difficult item to look for.

I've found a supplier for a router bit for this but it's in the UK.

Here is a link to a pdf that shows them.

router

thanks for the imput guys. the tool is just a dewalt trimmer router mounted to a round base with a handle on it. whats unigue about it is that the base is shaped to hold the router at an angle with a shape to allow it to keep the grooving bit firmly in the corner.the bottom of the base comes to a point allowing it to get into the corner formed by the jamb and the door stop.
