HI bw

I don't have the 3000 but I have one or two of the 2000 ser.in the router tables, they are great,,I just couldn't see putting out that much for a above table adjustment device.. plus I can change the bits from the top of the table with the 2000 ser..

so the only difference is the above table adjustment, 3000 vs. 2200 ?

Hi bw

Well yes and no ,,the 3000 will lift the bit higher so you can use the standard fac. wrench with it but for 14.oo or one of yours that you may have on hand you can use a off set one , and to make your own adjustment crank is duck soup..see the other post to see what parts are needed to do so..

But I will say you don't need the crank lift because is so easy to lift the router in to place with the fac.knob that comes with all of them,,,most of the time you only need to move the router up and down by 1" or less the norm..plus you can still use it as a hand plunge router out the table...

I have been using the 2200 Freud router for about 16 years now and find it absolutely perfect for table use, ( replaced it a few years ago after I made a blunder and damaged the first one).
