Despite the fact that I own three routers, I'm very new to woodworking and am wondering what other routers I should own.
Currently, I own a 1-1/2hp Craftsman (a.k.a. "el cheapo!!") that I bought 5 years ago to make a pine chair-rail when I didn't know any better. That's pretty much the last time I used it. The only thing I like about it is the light that illuminates the workpiece when I pull the trigger. I wonder why more expensive routers don't have a built-in light?!!
Since then, I've received two other routers as gifts -- a Porter Cable 690LR and the new Bosch 1617EVSPK fixed/plunge base combo. I must say, the Bosch is the most fun to use!!!
I don't yet own a router table, but I've heard/read that you need at least a 3hp router for a table. Any recommendations?
