Default I'm new to routers!

Hi folks. I'm Frank, keen DIYer, I live in England and really would like to get into routers. I ve done a couple of simple things but want to buy a decent router to become more proficient. Any suggestions or ideas would be very warmly welcomed! Thanks, Franko.

G’day Frank.

Welcome to the router forum.

Thank you for joining us

I recommend Triton or Makita......(which is what I use)

g'day to you James. I'll look into both makes. Makita are pretty expensive over here, but I've got some Makita stuff and it's pretty awesome. Don't know much about Triton though.

Hi Frank, yes the Makita is expensive out here as well - but worth every penny.

I use a 3612c for hand held work and a Triton TRA001 for table work.
