Bob, the Router Boss is an overpriced whistles and bells version of the Woodrat. Copies do not often perform as well as the original and there is a difference between these two machines. If you want to go with this type of routing I suggest you choose a Woodrat. Once the weather warms enough that I can work in my garage you will see photos of mine.

Martin Godfrey the inventor and owner of Woodrat is a member of the forums.

Here is the Woodrat plunge bar. You can see I am plunging the DeWalt 625 with my thumb and finger tips, a well thought out design.

I would really like feedback on the Router Boss too. Have been looking at the Router Boss since it's coming out. Before that I was watching the Wood Rat. The Router Boss is USA made and has a few more bells and whistles than the Wood Rat. Both are great and do the job well from what I've read. The Router Boss is a bit spendy, but the Wood Rat isn't cheap either - what you want to spend just depends upon what you need it for. If my shop was big enough I'd order one now. The feedback I've found online has been very positive.
