The "optimum" choice of a router depends on what you'll be doing with it, and how often. Less expensive routers may suffice for occasional light-duty applications, and, as such, may represent a good value proposition. Better brands (translated as more expensive) will generally last longer, however, particularly if used frequently. |
Most of us here are frequent router users, and generally lean toward the better brands as a result. I like the Porter Cable brand (purchased at an industrial tool supplier, not a home-improvement store), but others have their favorites which differ.
Among the smaller routers, the Craftsman dual-base kit has received good comments here.
