Greetings Bernard and welcome to the router forum. Thank you for joining us, and remember to have fun, build well and above all be safe.
Some times the "best" is a matter of finances and availability, but it is almost always a matter of "personal preference". If money is no issue, get a 3.25 to a 3.5hp unit, if money is a main concern perhaps the Sears 2hp would work for you. Others will, I am sure log in on this one.
