I have the Freud 1700 router, and all I can say is, good luck.
I have had mine in a table since new. the day after I got it, I couldn't move it up or down. Sent it in and they repaired it. It happened again soon after, and I returned it for exchange.
1. The pos button lock setup has started slipping and they have sent me new parts 2 times.
2. A plastic coupling piece, that connects the above table adjuster, busted. They sent me a metal replacement.
3. A metal, die cast part, in the above table lock, broke 2 times, and both times they sent parts, with no question.
When locking the height down, from above the table, don't tighten it very hard.
I find the supplied adj. knob for above table adj, not easy to use. A plastic handled T hex driver works much easier.
Apart from needing repairs 6 times, I like the router. Sort of an oxymoron?
The above table bit changes and adjustment have spoiled me!
2 collets are nice, but a self releasing one would be nicer.
Good luck with yours.
