Router table router
I am considering getting a fixed base router for exclusive use in my table. I plan to use ½" shanks as often as possible, but some ¼" shank bits are unavoidable. My present router has both ¼ and ½" collets, but I understand some routers come with a ½" collet with an insert for ¼" collets. How bad an idea is this? I'm willing to save up some money for a reasonably powerful motor, but if I can't find a dual-collet machine, is the insert model reasonably safe?
I'm not slow, I'm pacing myself!
