Hi Joseph - welcome to the forum

Like Bj pointed out, that's a question that has been, and will continue to be debated likely forever. I notice that you are in the Phillipines so many brands and models available in the US or Europe may not be available over there. Are there some brands, models you are considering? May be easier to start that way

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hi Joseph,

In your area, routers may be hard to locate in the hardware stores.

Check you local stores to see what is available.

Are you able to purchase from the US?

As BJ said, in his own way, there are many makes and models on the market and you will have to asses firstly what your intended use is.

Every member has their own favourites and will make a point for the router they use.

Good Afternoon to all of you. thank you for your reply. Here in the Philippines, we have Bosch, Hitachi, Maktec, Makita, Aeg and lots more, but less brands or let us say, no brands that from U.S i think(i maybe mistaken) hehe, more of Asian brands, maybe its the price. Here in the Philippines, they say makita is the best. I havent bought makita yet since its quite pricey, hehe, i do have maktec mt-150 uses 1/2"shank.
Am sorry for late reply, am busy since i went to cross borders for cabinetry installation. My usage of router is not the same as most of you guys, hehe, my usage are more on cleaning the edges of MDF or Particle boards. I installed some modular cabinetry works here just for fun or hobby. Am an Architect, i like exploring design in cabinetry. But am not personally handhelding the router. hehe. i have worker doing it for me. but am planning to add another set of tools, one router and circular saw.
Am not sure i can purchase powertools in U.S. since our voltage here is 220volts. hehe.
Our sales person here in the philippines always specifically inform buyers not to use portable router and portable circular saw as table mounted since they are not design for table saw and table router, warranties will be void. Is it true? And the tools will easily damage, they advise me to buy table saw instead that are gear type with motors and pulley, as they say its less maintenance, no carbonbrush

No, your salesmen are wrong. They don't read their own literature.

The Maktec MT360 has a section about using it in a table, including informing you to install the dust cover and spacer when using inverted.
