Default Best Router for Sign Pro kit

I just ordered a Milescraft 1212 Sign Pro kit and would like to know with router would be best for this kit. Or just info in general, size, plunge or fixed, etc. I don't want to break the bank maybe something under $100. I just want to make some signs for friends and family. I do have a old Craftsman router that I played around with a little.

PS I am new to the forum (joined 3 years ago) just didn't do anything till now.

Jim
Under 100.00 you might want to look on Craigslist if all you are going to do is signs, most small routers will do the trick.

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

Plunge router. If you need one under $100, Home depot sells a $99 Ryobi plunger that isn't too shabby.

Bob,
You tricked out your sign maker if I remember. Was it just when making long signs, or all the time?
