Thanks so much gentlemen. Placed my Amazon order with confidence last night. Never in a million years would I have selected that item on my own.
Being a new woodworker, I've started out with minimum expense items, which includes my $8 Craigslist 1/3 hp Craftsmen router. Couple great features.....it spins, the chuck doesn't wiggle, and most importantly, it didn't break the bank. Should the woodworking passion persist, I'm sure I'll add a real one to my collection in the future. For now though, I'll work with what I have till I outgrow it.
