Welcome to the forum, Ken.
The others are right in their advise. Don't get caught up in the HP. HP is notoriously misstated and is not usually as advertised. Stick with the mid "HP" rated router from the more common makers (Triton, PC, DeWalt, Elu, Bosch, etc.) looking for the features that suit your needs. If you can, physically hold or use what you are interested in before you buy. Buy a combo kit for the versatility and then go from there. You will find that one router will probably not suit all of you needs, and you will eventually add to your stable.
There is a lot of information here on the site pertaining to router buying information. Try doing a search and reading past threads for more information.
Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
