Default Mike

I am a retired carpenter/joiner, never did much router work, I'd like to try it now. I have done the MDF doors, dirty work.

I never know what to say or what to write on these forms, so I normally leave them blank.

Welcome Mike. Most of my experience has been with small trim routers for laminate. I recently purchased a full size router and it's been a learning experience for me as well. Read all the info you can, ask all the ?'s you want. This forum has the best people for learning there is. There is a ton of information here. I've learned more in the last couple of weeks here than I thought possible. Good luck and enjoy your new hobby.

Hey Mike, It's cool you decided to introduce yourself, it's always hard to make the first step and make that first post, but you did great! One thing the guys really like is comments on their projects, if you browse around and you see guys posting about their recent creation, just post what you think "Nice job! I like the finish you used.", anything goes Mike, feedback is always welcomed by the community
