I couldn't resist and ordered one of the Hitachi routers you guys seemed to use often in the episodes I've been seeing on woodworkingchannel.com I've since learned that there are some tabs in the throat of the router that are going to get in the way when raising panels with 3 1/4" bits. I've heard about people grinding those tabs off or leaving the bit at normal height and just easing into the cut adjusting the fence rather than raising the bit height gradually. I know you also yanked the springs out of yours from other discussions. Any comments about the router and suggestions on how to get the most out of it? I plan to run it in my router table.
