I'm fairly new to woodworking. I'm building jewelry and tea boxes and want to put inlay on them. I'm looking at buying a new router ( I have an old fixed base Craftsman) that will plunge (to use with an inlay kit) and preferably has 1/2 bit capability for future table use. I don't want to spend a bunch, but would rather bit the bullet now, rather than be sorry later. I'm looking at the 1 3/4 Porter Cable with both bases, or the Dewalt 2 1/4 hp with both bases. I'm leaning toward the Dewalt. Also if anyone has a cheaper, quality method for inlay, I'm all ears.
No announcement yet.
Router for inlay work.
