Router Research

I'm new to this forum.......But certainly not new to woodworking. I found this forum when researching which plunge router I should purchase. There are a lot out there. I was wondering if I could ask your opinion regarding which plunger router you recommend.........?

The router will be used primarily for mortising into oak and routing along pattern fixtures. I'm thinking a minimum of 2.25 H.P. and of course plunge. I know that there are kits out there providing both fixed base and plunge base and that's o.k. I'm not sure I need fixed base, but if that's what it takes, that's fine.

I have been looking at Triton, Bosch, Hitachi, Milwaukee, Porter Cable, Dewalt and Ridgid...............Which would you recommend based upon your experience?

Thanks for your help...

hello Dale,

i have a sears 2 1/4 hp pro combo that came with 3 bases.i havent had it that long but really like it. i had a porter cable in my table before that. im thinking about going today and picking up one of the 2 hp sears combos that Ken was talkng about. i do love the worklights on them and they are so much easier to adjust than the old pc.

but there are lots of great routers out there. i Know Jerry has a ridgid and really likes it too. i think todays routers are so much better than the ones from say 10 years ago as far as not saying they are better from a reliability standpoint, just from ease of use.
