Hi all. I’m looking for a little advice. I just installed a Bench Dog router table extension on my TS-3650. Installation and alignment with the saw table was a breeze. Now all I need to do is install a router. I was a little shocked when I stated looking at them and seen the prices. This looks to be an investment! As such, I want to ensure I’m getting the most for my money. I intend to try my hand at building raised panel cabinets as well as routing tambours for a roll top desk. Most of my project will be in Red and White Oak, Red Birch and Cherry. From what I can tell, I think I need at least a 2 ¼ HP, variable speed, fixed base router with above the table depth adjustment and a ½” collet. This is where I would appreciate some advice. What router would you folks suggest? I was considering a PC 7518 but read some not so good reviews about the lift mechanism failing. Also considering a Milwaukee 5625-20. I know there's a lot of others out there and would appreciate any input you folks may have.
No announcement yet.
