Hi All,

I like building guitars and want to but a router that can cut pickup holes, bodies, and necks, but also do delicate inlays on the headstock. I've been using a Dremel Trio, but it is a bit lightweight for most but the inlay. I do like that with smaller bits and low torque that I don't have control issues. I was about to grab a Bosch MRP23EVS Plunge Router because of the power control on the handle. I don't currently have plans to use huge bits and I have an old Craftsman (works but haven't used in 25 years) if I need to stick a router in a table. I had also thought of a smaller/lighter router for control. Any advice? Can I get away with a lighter router and yet regret that as I learn to do more things with a router? Thanks very much, Jeff

Too many apps, too many compromises for one router.
Count on a couple if you're a lifetime woodworker or if you have the resources not to compromise.

Sounds to me like one of the new mini routers should be right up your alley. Nearly all the better brands have come out with one.
