I was over at Sears this weekend and thought to myself, if I were to purchase a new router, the 2HP soft start seems a good buy for the money. Unless you are doing a lot of heavy cabinet work (large bits and such), 2 HP is probably as much as any of us really need anyway.
I have also noticed the Hitachi M12V seems to be very popular under tables, but I don't have experience with that one.
Woodworking is more than a hobby.
It is a journey of discovery,
An application of innovation and creativity,
And an opportunity at self improvement.
