I suppose I will be in trouble from SWMBO.

Went out and bought a Ryobi cordless trim router, LOL

Going to have to change some habits and make some new base plates and jigs.....

James on this side of the equator Christmas was several months ago! That's a sharp looking portable. I'm sure you'll find many uses for it.

That model seems to get good reviews.

Spent today at The Men's Shed making a jig for the router...:)

We hope you have good luck with it James.
I'm learning here, how to acquire some twin tools with good excuses.
Almost ended up with 2 plunge bases for 1 tool here yesterday had my wife not remembered we already bought 1.

That's OK, Robert (@Woodenhearted ), you are allowed to have up to 10 routers before it becomes contagious......LOL. I must have at least 8 now.....

I have 9 routers at the moment and none are wireless. I probably need to get one now that you have stirred up a hornets nest. I have Ryobi wireless tools and also Makita wireless. Once I start purchasing wireless tools it puts me in a position that leans towards that same brand since of all the batteries and chargers.. Too bad the manufacturers do not take trade-ins

James,
I do feel I will need at least 1 more bigger router in a table. My wife just read your post about the maximum of 10 routers rule within the hobby haha.
She has agreed to a table along with a permanent router staying put. I will be looking into that more in the months ahead.

@ Rebelwoodworking, I'm trying to stay on the good boy side here lol. I would probably be looking for a new wife if I needed to get more than 2 routers haha.

I'm hoping to join in on the fun once I get set-up in the coming weeks, months ahead.

Guess I was influenced by this post. I just ordered the Makita 18v router and the plunge base from Amazon. I have batteries and chargers, and didn't need to order the entire kit.

I agree James , one router is never enough . Heck, I even went and bought a Bosch 1617 last year to see what all the hype is about . Will update when I remove it from the box
