Since I do 99% of what I do strictly for pleasure --
ie - time does not equal money
I've never really felt a need to own more than one at a time.

Just bought the Craftsman Combo discussed widely here with the idea that I would send my Ryobi to my brother.
BUT -- getting lazy in my old age --- think I will keep the Ryobi for hand work and mount the heavier duty Craftsman 'permanently' in my table.

So - now -- I have 2

Yep, got to admit I am a router nut too as I have 9 routers in my collection.
2 Elu 96E 1/4"
2 Hitachi MV12
1 De Walt 615 1/4"
1 De Walt 625E 1/2"
1 Tend T5 1/4"
1 Freud 2000V 1/2"
1 Power Pro 1/2"
Most of these are in use as I leave a few of them set up for jigs ETC. I do have the freud as a backup router for hand use and the Hitachi is in my table. The one I do regret buying is the Power Pro one as it just wasn't accurate enough. ;)

1 Craftsman Pro model (free hand work)
2 Makita 3612C's (1 table mounted, the other hand held, my fav's by far)
1 yukon (junk)

I needed to update this one... same as above but with the following additions.
1 roto-zip (Home Depot purchased)
1 Dremil (if that counts)

I got 1....a lonely Skil 1825....:-(

Oh, wait.....I have a router accessory to a dremel. Does that count?

A few months ago, I bought a Triton 2.25 hp router to use in a CMT table.

This was my (fine) introduction to the joys of routing, replacing a less than compelling Craftsman router that I had for 20 years.

This week, I came across an unused Festool OF1400, with accessories on Craigslist, and I grabbed it at a great price. I started acquiring Festool items recently, and could not be more pleased with the tools, so this was a serendipitious addition to my little woodworking arsenal.

So now I have a great combination. The Triton in the table, and the Festool for handheld and rail guided use.

I'll find a good home for the 1/4" Crafstman.

I've got six going right now.
2 Freud 1700's; one fixed base in a portable table and one two base kit for handheld work
1 Freud 3000 in a free standing table
1 Hitachi M12VC two base kit for more hand held stuff
1 Trend T-4 trim router for light plunge work such as door hinge mortises
1 Bosch Colt "installer kit" for light edge work and who knows what else as I haven't had it long enough to play with all the whiz bangs it came with.:)

And what kind ?,make,model,size, HP, out of the routers you have what is your favorite and which one do you wish you didn't buy and why.

I'm sure someone can use this as a guide to buy a new one. :)
