Default Hello to all

Hello to all. I came accross this website while searching for info on the Freud Ft1700 router. I am retired and have spent numerous years working with wood but just got around to building my first router table. I am looking at a used Freud FT1700 router for my table mainly because of it ease in changing bits above the table top. Cost is a factor in buying a router for this table. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or info on this.

Can't say much about a US. router as I live in France, but some are cheap now on amazon:

$119 for 11 Amp looks like a good deal.

Amazon.com: Porter-Cable 690LR 11-Amp Fixed-Base Router: Power & Hand Tools

Happy Todaay!
