Thanks for the welcome. There is only one 15 amp cicuit down there. If the answer is a negative I suppose I can always bring the thing back to a woodcrafters store and get a smaller router. I havent used routers a whole lot in the woodshop I go to, but enough to do some basic grooves, flush cuts, roundovers etc. They have routers there. I wanted this for home, so if its too much of a power hog it wont do anyhitng for me.
As far as weight goes, I would think the extra wieght 13 lbs was good for stability for free hand routing. Ive used the dewalt and hitachi plunge routers, older models and they seem heavy and ok. Its really the electrical draw on my old knob and tube 15 amp 14 awg wires that makes me wonder if I should go smaller.
