Got a Freud FT2000E and a Makita KP0800 from a retiring contractor, for a whooping $180. The KP0800 is brand new. Haven’t tried the plane yet, but absolutely LOVE the router. It’s a day and night difference from the Ryobi I started with. Will take a little to get used to the plunging, but the tool is on a completely new level.

I’m generally happy about the router because it opens a whole new venue with the 1/2” bits and everything that comes with it. Meaning that I am no longer limited to very light duty stuff and can take on more serious projects.

It’s an entirely different game with a soft start, a plunge base and an edge guide. I haven’t done anything substantial except for testing it on some scrap wood, but am looking forward to learning how to use it for tenons and mortises. If anything, it’s an invaluable hands-on experience that I paid very little for. Absolutely zero second thoughts.
