Setting Up Shop
I found your site on web while searching for tool reviews. Am setting up a garage & basement shop. I have an old Black and Decker 3/4 hp, but am looking to improve to something new.
Am looking for a router with more power, that can be mounted on a table, or handheld with a plunge option. Because it gets cold here in Colorado I will be using it in the basement when the snow flies so dust control is very important. I just looked at a 2 1/4 hp Porter & Cables at Lowes for around $259, and with a $50 off coupon I could get it for around $209. (It is also made in the good old USA which is important to me!)
I am really excited about FINALLY being able to set up shop, and have a lot of projects: Garage Cabinets, Jewelry Table for the wife, Book Shelves for the den, Trim work throughout the house, Wood floors for the stairs, and Upstairs.
You get the picture I am sure! Any recommendations on a router, table, and book for technique and projects?
