Thank you, Tom.
I have several routers. I have my main router (Porter Cable 2 1/4 hp multi-base) that I use with the plunge base most of the time. I have the fixed base set up with a collar for guide bushings and use that base with templates when I need to. I have an older workhorse Porter Cable 690 (1 3/4 hp) set up in my homemade table-top router table, and plan on getting a 3hp Porter Cable with a plunge base to set up in a bigger, better router table once I get my shop set up.
I have a couple of ancient Black & Decker 1 1/2 hp routers, and I want to set one up permanently in an overarm pin router configuration. Once I get the hang of using it, I'll rework it to handle the 2 1/4 hp Porter Cable.
My wife is a knitter. No, I mean a serious knitter. She cards the wool into bats of roving, spins it into yarn, knits, felts, dyes, weaves (we have an 8 harness jack loom in the living room because there's no room for it in her yarn room.) I mean she does everything but raise the sheep. As a result, I find myself being asked to make certain tools, furniture, and supplies for her. (I'm in the process of making a dozen rag shuttles for her loom.) I'm thinking an overarm pin router will help me to make several things with a lot less muss and fuss than cutting out each body on my band saw. Especially when you consider the fact that her knitting/weaving buddies are hinting around that they'd like for me to start making them stuff too.
Don't get me wrong - it's fun - but I'd like to streamline the process a bit. And I can't complain too much - she's offered to buy me a lathe if I'll make her a new spinning wheel with it. We'll see what happens...
