    rofl,

    That's the router I ended up buying, it works great in the router table I built. The dust collection fitting it comes with works great hooked up to a shop vac. Good choice!

      Yeah, I'm planning on using these for a toy chest I'm building -- Lee Valley has a few different kinds available. I'll have to report on the results.

      BTW; my router lift is a wedged in spreader clamp... lol. Cheap, and relatively effective.

        I bought the 3.25hp Triton as a dedicated table mounted router. FYI. the opening on the triton is 3" in diameter. not sure if it can take a 3.5" bit. but I'll be happy to find that I'm mistaken (if the bit is kept above the base opening somehow... not really sure)

          Instead, what you are buying is not the router lift. What you are buying is efficiency.
          Nah, they don't care about efficiency... they know you're not coming out of the shop.

          Play the safety card. If you're wife hasn't got a clue about wood machines, it doesn't even have to be true.
