I will look at BJ's solution as I think that will come in handy for other projects in the future. I did look at the Bosch at Rockler and I was ready to pull the trigger on it but another customer over heard my conversation with the Rockler employee and he suggested that the Craftsman is a pretty good kit for half the price. Being I am just getting my feet wet, I figured I would save a little money. Plus, you can never have too many routers right? So when I buy the Bosch or another in the future, I have an extra.
As for the military service, regrettably, I never served. Thank you for all that did. I will always feel a little inferior for not doing my part in that regard.
