Hi folks. Brian from Ontario here. Not much of a woodworker up to this point, most(all?) of what I've built so far is functional, but it could never be described as pretty so I bought a used router/table to try to change that. It's a Craftsman with a 1/4" shank.. and from what I've read so far, all the REAL routing is done with a 1/2" shank, but this will do for now.

Bob and Rick, my brother turned me on to your show with a couple of tapes he made back when you were first getting started. Most informative.

Take care
Brian

Thanks for the welcomes guys. I've been reading thru the posts as time permits... I can see a lot of help here for a newbie such as I.

But.. now I have to whine... and it has nothing to do with the forum.

Apparently, there is a problem with the PBS station in my area and there is currently no broadcast availalbe. :( <sigh> Oh well, I can always catch the show next week.

First WELCOME!

Second, I had a Sear router as my first router back in the mid 70's it has served me well and I still use it. I made many a project with it and while the 1/2" might be in your future learning and using the router you have is more importain then that issue.
