Thanks for the help
I'm new at the whole forum concept but I've found the tips and suggestions here very helpful and useful.
I asked about router tables and machines. From following various threads I got enough information to clarify my own thoughts and make a buying decision for a new, upscale router and table setup.
Picked up a Freud 1700 combo kit and ordered a table that is basically a clone of the one Norm uses on New Yankee Workshop. Turned out I was able to buy one for about $100 more than material cost so that was worth it to me.
I really just wanted to post this to say a generic Thanks to everyone who posted their views and past results.
It really helped me get a good picture of what I wanted to do. Mind you I spent 20 or 25 hours surfing the threads but that was time well spent.
I don't know how active a poster I will be but I know I'll be an active reader of the material here.
Thanks again for all the good information.
