First router choice help!
First off, I just joined Routerforums. It's good to be here!
I am new to routers, and this will be my first router purchase. Yesterday I was trying to decide on which router I was going to buy between the Milwaukee 5616, and the Bosch 1617. I am having a very strange buying process, with loads of indecision on this!
First I walked out the door with a Bosch 1617 Router. After reading up on the two more after I got it home I returned it unopened later that day and ordered the Milwaukee 5616-20. After reviewing the online order from Home Depot I realized I did not get the 5616-21 which is the one with the case. When I receive the 5616-20, I will be returning to Home Depot once again to return it and get the 5616-21 so I can have the case. But now I am trying to decide if I should just stick with the Bosch router after all.
I would be thankful if I could receive some advice on which of these two routers I should actually get. They both seem like good choices. The Milwaukee is a fixed base, obviously and the Bosch is fixed, and plunge base. Further more I see the Bosch has revised it's 1617 to the MRC23.
Thanks for your time, and attention.
