    Favorite Router
    Depends on the application. The PC7518 (3.25 HP monster) in my router table is outstanding. Have a DW611 in my CNC Router that seems to be doing it's job. My "go to" router for hand held stuff is the Dewalt DW618 on the plunge base with integrated dust collection. Doesn't always pull the dust but it works well about 80% of the time and that makes routing a lot less messy. I'm not in love with any one brand, though.
