Hi TomWelcome, glad you decided to join the fun. That's a nice router, good choice. It will be interesting to see some of the projects you make using it.
Since you introduced yourself as new to this addiction (hobby) I thought I'd send along a pdf of the 17 things that helped me accelerate the learning curve. It's long, but has pictures and covers a lot of different areas. As you accumulate tools, it may help you avoid an expensive lesson or two. If you don't have dust collection yet, hope you're wearing a good mask, that sawdust is nasty to your lungs. There's a section in the pdf about that.
Stick has a number of really good pdfs on safe and best use of routers and should be along soon with a post. Those are well worth reading.
I think you've already found out that people here are pretty friendly and love to answer questions and make suggestions. They have lots of years of experience behind their advice.
Very comprehensive, your material will definitely be a go to reference for me, a hobby woodworker. Per your recommendation, I got The Joint Book by Terrie Knoll. While I was at it, I also got the Workbenches book by Christopher Schwarz. Now, first things first, the hunt for a dedicated dust collection setup begins. Thank you so much Tom.
You're welcome. You are really pretty far along in your knowledge and tool collection. Sounds like retirement will really liberate you for moving ahead with your skills. Looking forward to seeing your projects. You might take and post some pictures of your shop area....
Thank you for all the advice. I wish you all the best.
