    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    Hi
    I recently bought a Kreg Jig and then went to a woodworking show in Milwaukee to figure out what to do with it. That led to me to realize I needed a new router. I bought a Craftsman 1-1/2 HP router at a garage sale about 30 years ago and only used it occasionally. Came with a whole box of accessories which I never used mainly because I didn't ever learn anything about routing. Anyway, I have a 1617EVSPK 2.25 HP Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit on backorder from Home Depot. Due to come in the middle of March.

    I found this site while looking for a manual for a Craftsman Dovetail Template...Thanks for that!

    I'm going to need a starter bit set and I bet I can get some recommendations on your forum. What am I going to do with my new router?? I don't know really. I told my wife I had to have it in order to build her some cabinets. I think I just want to play with it. :-) However, I have a few rental properties and always need to build or fix something.
