Welcome to the group. We are glad you have joined-up with us. Hopefully we can be of some help to you, also. People that wisdom comes from don't necessarily need to be old - just observant and able to accurately explain things. Both of the members [above] that have responded gave good answers. There is a myriad of choices and many are very good ones. I am going to suggest that you consider ease of getting service work done. I am in a good location for quite a few of the major brands and my routers are PC690's - there are (3) and this means to me that parts such as collets and bases are all interchangeable. If I had numerous routers, it is my guess that this ease of exchange would not be an option. There is a Porter-Cable / DeWalt service center very handy to me - and I have always been extremely satisfied with the work they have done for me. Makita, Milwaukee, Bosch and Hitachi are all also very convenient for me. Years ago someone pointed-out to me that although there are many brands of very good routers, PC is so common that you can practically buy accessories for them in grocery stores (just kidding!) but they really are easily procured from a wide variety of vendors. This can save you time, money and headaches. Many people insist that the Bosch routers are quite nice, and I have no doubt whatsoever. Others favor all of the other brands. Still others wouldn't take some routers if they were free. So, check in your local area and see what is available for service and parts - so that you do not get "painted into a corner" and have to pay dearly or wait forever for something quite simple. Just my two cents worth. I wish you great luck in your endeavor!
