+1 What he said.I have bought several powertools fro CPO and they are very good . Their reconditioned tools are as good as new and half the price. I would recommend them to anyone.
Good idea on the tape.I bought a DW618B3 kit (the three base version) several years back and liked it so much I ended up buying a second. They are my GO-TO routers for most of the routing that I do. Just one problem - DAMHIKT I had to put different colored tape on the top of the motors because I frequently use both routers at the same time (like when doing dovetails) and with different bits and settings it was easy to grab the wrong one. Now I do the pins with the red one and tails with the blue one.
