Default Recommendations for router

Hello everyone,
This week I will be finishing my drill press table and will be moving on to a router table project.I currently have two plunge routers however neither are high quality .I hope to acquire a new fixed based router soon.I would like to purchase a router that can be adjusted from the top of the table.Also,is there a chuck type accessory for a router?My budget is limited and a router in the $300-400 range is out of my league.Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.Oh,once this router is installed I plan to leave it there and use my other routers for hand operations.

Hi Danny. No chuck for routers. They usually have a 1/4" or 1/2" collets for the bits. You could look at the Triton router. It comes with a built in lift you can adjust from above the table. Excellent router for the table.

My self I have a cheap Ryobi . It was my first router . It has it draw backs but It fit what I could afford . What ever you get make shore it can handle both the 1/4 and 1/2 inch collets .

I would recommend the Triton router. It has easy above table ajustments and bit changing. I own a 3 1/4 hp Triton and just purchased the small 9amp(1 1/3 hp) model for $99 from Woodcraft. A great router
