Really considering buying a Multi-Router soon and want last minute discussion. Thoughts go!

Looks too complex. Too many steps to do anything.
What would be your primary use? Box joints, Dovetails or mortise and tenon. I think there are other dedicated options that may be easier


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.

As Terry asked ... what would you do with them? At one point, I had 5 routers, and a table that could hold 3 routers at the same time. Using it was much more work than it was worth.

I still have 2 routers ... one in a table, and the other hand held. But I rarely use them. Most all of the work I do nowadays is by hand. Much more therapeutic, and no need for eye, ear, or lung protection.

... turning perfectly good wood into firewood every day ... :smile3:

Look at the things you want to do and see if it's worth the purchase..... You might look at dedicated router forums for advise...

For me if it's not complex it's a waste of my personal time...
