Just on the subject of routers what would be some good stats to look for when buying a router(within a reasonable price range)
Looking to purchase one soon as my last one died(Ryobi).
Well, that sorta depends on what you are going to be using it for...
freehand or table mounted? A very good router for just about anything
you would do is a Dewalt 616 or 618 3 base kit. These routers are easy to use, adjust, and switch form table use to handheld in a minutes time. The 616 is 1&3/4 hp the 618 is 2& 1/4 hp, they share
the same bases, all are interchangeable, use the same edge guide,
bit changing tools, collets and so on. I have the 616 and three bases
two fixed ones and a plunge base one of the fixed bases is in my router table, I just slide the motor out and drop it into the other fixed base
or plunge base as needed. The depth adjustment is real easy to use
on either one and I never had a minutes trouble with this router
and I highly recommend it. eezlock
