Default Greetings!

I've been a woodworker off an on for 50 years. I learned most of what I know from my father who, in the 1950's, acquired a Sears Craftsman router that I inherited and played around with until I sold it and all if it's accessories (except router bits) in 1994. I'm about to retire from my "real job" and have, in the last couple of years, returned to serious hobby woodworking.

In that renewed interest I built a router table with a Porter-Cable 7518 in a Smartlift base, and added a Jessm Master-Slide mounted on a Kreg fence. I also have a Bosch 1617EVS and a Bosch Colt. My next acquisition will be an overarm pin router for my Shopsmith.

In my second life after retirement I'm looking forward to making guitars and banjos, clocks, and small project woodturning (pens, bowls, etc.)

Right now I'm in the process of fine-tuning my shop to get useful and compact storage for tools and accessories.

Willie Welcome to the forum; there are many here who can assist you getting what you want to do with a router. Just a reminder; there is more that can be achieved when the router is held in the plunge mode, with the aid of template guides. I have produced many small articles using this method which has brought greater interest with the use of the router. Check out the material below.
