3-1/4HP Fixed Router - Milwaukee or Porter Cable??
I'm debating the purchase of a 3-1/4HP fixed router for my Bench Dog portable router table. It's the one that is a box with a door and it's attached to a very sturdy metal shop stand.
I'm looking to learn the ins and outs of making raised panel doors and such. Both routers get rave reviews and very high marks. The PC runs about $50 or so more than the Milwaukee but the Milwaukee base is PC-oriented so that accessories are easy to come by and use.
This router will be dedicated so I don't see any need for a plunge router at this time. I already have 2 PC 1-3/4HP's (one is VS with plunge), a PC 3/4HP fixed and a Bosch VS Colt.
Any advice on the best way to proceed will be appreciated. Thanks!
EDIT: The Milwaukee Router is actually a 3-1/2HP model. The PC is 3-1/4HP.
