Default Liked the first two so much...

Bought another Ridgid Router. Both R2901's but my old one came with the combo, plunge and fixed base. This one has just the fixed base. Which will work out perfectly. Old router and old fixed base will be dedicated table router. New Router and new fixed base, along with old plunge base (fitted with Milescraft Turnlock base) , for hand held work. And then of course, all the way to the left is my handy trim router.

Now for the bad news. My Musclechuck I bought for my table router, came in today. BUT.... Doesn't fit my router!! My router is the R2901, the closes the Musclechuck site had listed was for a R29001. I thought I may have just forgot to write down the second "0" from my router. No, Ridgid has both a R2901 and an R29001. Different routers, different Musclechucks. After calling the guy at Derosa Engineering (Musclechuck) and telling him my chuck didn't fit, he apologized for not having the R2901 in his list on the website. It takes the Series 7, not 8, as I thought I needed. So he's going to send me the right one, next day air, as soon as I get him the wrong one back.

Nice! That was my original plan too, two Ridgids, one in the table and one free. But, I went another way.

Lee...Ridgid makes some mitey good tools and routers. You're gonna get spoiled with that Musclechuck. I bought one recently and ended up buying two more and I keep asking myself why I waited so long to get the first one.

I am Bill!!

Greg, I was salivating at the mouth, wanting to mount that Musclechuck and give her a try (that sounds a bit strange...) LOL But yea, I think I'm going to like it a lot. I was debating on getting another for my new router. But I think I'm ok with changing the bit with the wrench and stop pin when it's on the bench. It was just awkward trying to press the lock pin in and use a wrench on the table. The Musclechuck will take care of that. That reminds me, I've got to get to the Post Office to mail this incorrect one back!!

You'll be very pleased with the Musclechuck and their support is awsome. They even called me to check on an order as I was splitting the parts between two routers and they wnted to confirm that point.
