I bought a sears fixed base 2 HP router 3 years ago. ONLY because a very good friend gave me a sears (older router table) cast aluminum. Nice little table with the extension wings, never used. It was the only router I could find that would match up to the bolt hole pattern, in the table. I did not want to redrill the table.
End of last year my younger cousin was looking to get a router, set it up in a table to get started in woodworking. He asked me what router to get, on a tight budget. So I looked up the router I bought, It was being discontinued as I was buying it. Hardly any parts available. I have always hated Sears because of this for many years. He is saving his money and getting the Bosch. Of course I swayed him in that direction! Very satisfied in my Bosch routers.
