Hi Tom,

I prefer the plunge. Easier to setup and use. Since I also have the OP table, I can pop mine out and still use it free hand, just has a much larger plate.

I have the Bosch 1617evs...I struggled with this decision since I wanted to dedicate a router to my table. I figured I would buy the most powerful router that I can afford. I looked at 3+ hp routers and realized I was paying for power than I realistically needed. That is hard for me to type that being a tool guy...you know the more power theme...grunt..grunt!
Previously, I used a PC 690 router in my table and it worked well. I replaced it because I needed speed control. For my needs as a hobbist the Bosch is working out just fine!

Hi Tommy, welcome to the forum. Not sure you have a choice with the Freud, I have only seen it in plunge configuration. I use the smaller fixed base Freud 1700 in my table. The 3000 has above table adjustment capability but I have seen some complain about smooth adjustments. I don't know about the PC.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hi Tom & welcome,
I have two router tables, one has a Hitachi M12V 3-1/4hp with a router raizer lift mounted on it for above table adjustments. The other table has a new generation Triton TRC001 3-1/4 with a built in lift with above table adjustments.

I do have a small movable work table that that I can mount a fixed base PC690 router in but I usually just use it with a flush trim bit. It has no fence, just a small hole in the top.

Have a nice & safe day!

There are several members who have it. From what's been posted here in the forums, they like them, good routers overall.
