Default New router user

Hello All,
I joined this site to expand my knowledge of routers from more experienced users such as yourselves. I work at a photo lab/sign shop and I had no knowledge of routers and had to learn it "on the fly". I operate a Zund L-2500,
and use mostly 1/8" & 1/4" Onsurd bits to cut photos mounted to gatorboard, sintra, .040 aluminum and plex.

I will be posting many questions I'm sure in the future concerning tips on the best type of bits for a material, spindle speeds, etc. I just wanted to make my presence known and to see how many others here use a machine similar to the one i use.

Thanks!
