    Re: What am I doing wrong?!?!?!?!

    Fine Woodworking did a test of routers for router tables in their January/February 2007 issue. The Triton was judged to be both Best Overall and Best Value. As a result, I purchased one for my recently completed router station.

    I have a copy of the article in PDF format that I can email to you if you give me your email address.

I've already had the problem fixed once before, and have brought the engineering fault to the attention of P-C. I said at that time that when the router breaks again, I was never going to fix it and never get another P-C router. Enough is enough.

      The hubby has agreed to let me get a new router, so I'm prowling about looking at options. So far the short list is:

      Bosch 1617EVSPK
      Ridgid R2930
      Milwaukee 5616-24

      All of these models seem to do well in a table. The major purpose of this router will be to stay mounted in the table. Although at times I find it handy to have two plunge routers setup with different bits for various projects. My major point in this search is to find a router that can work really well in a router table, and in a pinch work well in hand-held mode. Any other suggestions or comments on those three would be appreciated.
      I have the Bosch you mention here. Got the combo kit, fixed and plunge. As has been stated, i love it. Very quiet, easy to adjust, variable speed is real nice for different types of woods and depths. Very nice reaults. Pleasure to use......
