The Router Workshop was broadcast on PBS for 11 seasons. Now you can only find it in limited viewing areas on PBS, other than that you have to watch the shows on the web at the address BJ listed. The show will open your eyes to easier ways to complete jobs. The simple polyurethane fence does a perfect job for most applications. The Bosch 1619 is top rated, and owned by some staff members. I own a PC 7518 and in a table it will do the heavy work just fine. You do not want to use it hand held, trust me. I also own a pair of Bosch 1617's and they are my favorites, get the most use. I have other routers too, but the main idea is to be able to get the job done easily, quickly and with the minimum amount of effort.
