Hello & welcome Jon, new myself sir. Good luck with the shop in the garden, sounds awesome, would love a few pics of your place, sounds really nice. I grew up in the country, miss it.
I had a Kreg Tool rep excitingly tell me all about the Triton routers and their ability to top adjust/raise/etc. I couldn't wait to check them out and while they are beastly, and functionally good machines, don't care for the cheap plastic adjustment knobs, etc, seems quite a few folks do not like the fact they're built somewhat cheap looking, ableit they're beasts motor wise and function well.
I'm also in the router market and am holding out for RIDGID to finish up their next version which supposedly is 3.25 to 3.5 hp. My understanding is they pulled their 2 hp router w/plunger assembly off the market to redesign, they want to be one if not the top tool mfg's. I like something solid built and having a friend from Home Depot with direct intel to RIDGID, little birdie told me to hold up on the Bosch or Porter Gable. So for now my SKIL router will suffice and one day become the spare.
