Hey Bob... How about giving a hands-on review.. new vs. old.. ??? I've got 3 of the old ones and they're pretty sweet.

I'd bet a nickel you've either got one or got one on order.. Did I win??

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

I seriously envy the cheap combo routers you guys have access to.
I doubt I could even buy a black and decker plunge router for that price here.

Yesterday I found the 17543 (fixed and plunge bases) at my local Sears for $49.99. The label says it's "used" but I can see no sign of it having ever made sawdust.

The 2 older Craftsmen I use don't have the speed control this offers, hoping to put this to use making some raised panels.
