New around here. What now?
So, my in-laws came to visit for thanksgiving, and my father-in-law picked me up a refurbed Craftsman 320.17543 router kit (with fixed and plunge base). They were on sale for almost nothing, and hes a sears rat.
So, what now? Any particular advice on what to start with? What bits, kits, accessories, etc? Links to any router table designs?
Also, the kit had both bases with clear plastic bottoms. There were also two additional clear plastic pieces, one a ring shape with a tube coming off of it, the other looks like it fits into the side of the fixed base, and also has a tube coming off it. Dust collection?
There are also two 15" metal rods, with a screw in the end of them. Any idea what these are for?
