Default Introduction

I found my way here while beginning research on small hand-held routers. I have one that I bought a few years ago from one of those traveling tool stores that operate out of a trailer. It's a real piece of junk, but I can see that a decent one would really be handy. I retired early and took up woodworking about 7 years ago as a hobby (aren't there any inexpensive hobbies?). I keep busy making boxes and furniture for fun and profit -- mostly fun.

Welcome Dick 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 inexpensive projects made from material that was placed in the reject box. Check out the material below.

Hi Dick - Welcome to the forum
I see in your profile you are using a Milwaukee 5625, that's a pretty big handful. Several guys here use those though and think a lot of it. What size were you looking at?
Once again, welcome and don't be a stranger. Glad to have you.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
