I recently picked up the plunge router accessory for my Dremel Advantage rotary/spiral saw. Since it was discontinued, it was inexpensive. The chuck that came with it is for 1/4" shank bits. I haven't had the opportunity to use the assembly yet, and I have never done any routing. Any comments on the combination for routing, and on books I might find at the local library on routing in general?

Welcome Thaled. Your rotary saw is designed for high speed cutting with small bits. As long as you take small cuts in multiple passes you will be able to do many projects. Remember to reduce speed when using larger diameter bits for safety. The best books on the subject would be anything by Bob and Rick Rosendahl, Bill Hylton and Patrick Spiellman.

HI thaled
I have one of the Dremel plunge router accessory and they work great for light routing jobs. :)

Hi thaled. Welcome to the forums. You might find "Woodworking with the Router" by Bill Hylton at the library. I find it interesting and informative reading. I too, would recommend Oak-Park books. They were the first ones I bought.
