Jim, what I see here is a perfect excuse to buy a new router. Lots of folks here are partial to the Bosch 1617, but Porter Cable, Milwaukee and Dewalt also make good routers. Stay away from Skil, Ryobi and Craftsman.
ďWe should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.Ē - Mark Twain
