Hello forum! I appreciate the opportunity to enter this forum. I know nothing about a router!!. I bought 2! A straight and a plunge router. I hope this site and forum will assist me to understanding this tool. Oh, bought a router table and bits too.
Forum, I am at your mercy so be kind. By trade I am a Correctional Lieutenant preparing to retire next May. Hope I can learn enough to earn a little side cash.
Thanks--Ronald J. McCarty Sr.

First off you have one of the toughist jobs in law enforcement. So wood working will be a breeze. To each his own, but I started out with a project and used the router to improve the look of it. Then I bought project books and started doing as many as finaces would alow. Just some thoughts to get you going. Look through the galleries of what we have build. May be that will inspire you to try one of them. Welcome aboard.
