I'm a brand newbie to this forum and to inlay work in general. I'm thinking about getting a new router (my old!!! Craftsman router doesn't hack it anymore) and was thinking about getting something that would work for inlay work as well as other general purpose type work. Does something like that exist? I've just started reading a little and see that a "portable plunge router" seems to be the tool of choice but I'm not sure what that means. Could someone give me quick intro on differences in router types and suggest some good tool brand names to consider. Thanks Dan.

Greetings Dan and welcome to the forum. From what I hear the new Sears router kits with fixed and plunge bases are exceptional value for the price, (105.00-130.00), at least that is what I have been hearing. To really understand the different types of routers I would suggest you go to your local store that handles routers and get an education. You can also check out the links below and learn about some of the different router types.
