Fancy, high dollar routers.

For a first router, look at Harbour Freight, fixed base, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2” collets, 2hp. It will do everything you want, even with putting it in a table.

I have used one in a table for 3 years and one free hand for 6 years. No problems so far, but of course, it is Chinese and is going to explode just as soon as you unbox it according to many here.

Of course, the Bosch, PC, Dewalt, Ryobi, Triton, Milwaukee, and hundreds of others are also built in the same chinese factories.

Oh, and it’s about $50 on sale.
