Default First Router

Just bought my first router. Never used one, always wanted to start woodworking.

Welcome. Hope you have as much fun using yours as I have been having using mine (not really my first as I used my brother's years ago) these last couple of months.

I purchased the Porter Cable 895PK. I see why dust collection is so important! And glasses! I created a make shift table with an insert I inherited from a friend. Bought a couple of bits on the weekend and hope to make some more dust tonight.
