Ok....I did purchase the New in Box Ryobi RE-600 3 H.P. Plunge Router. What I found was, a router that has no variable speed control that works. So, I'm back to square one in the world of routers. The seller says, "It was new in box." So now I'm in a settlement. So, I now have two routers that do the very same thing. I will see if I can cut some wires, get rid of the soft start, buy a speed control, and just move on. Very nice router, and yes, it is brand new. Since I believe this router has not been made for awhile, I wonder where it has been sitting.....only the shadow knows, or perhaps the seller. He will not share this info with me.
So, I have a new router...I like my new router...I'll use my new router...thank you (seller) for my router...I got a deal on my router...not sure who lost....BigD1 or the seller.
