I do mostly small projects.

Dee1, you have opened up a can of worms… That’s like asking people for a picture of their grandkids… everyone will show a different picture (I hope)...

You didn’t specify a price limit.

Just remember you can always do your mostly small project on a beefy router, however, am underpowered router would object if you ever decide to feed it that “odd large project”.

My first serious router was a Triton (back in the days before plastic parts) and still not missing a beat. However my current go to router (when talking tabletop mode) is a Porta Cable 7518 on a Woodpecker PRL-V2 lifter (can’t be beaten for ease of use/versatility – the lifter).

If you are not budget constrained… you cannot go past a Festool… and drive it to your worksite in your Rolls-Royce! Problem is, it’s features would be wasted in a table top.

For a small router/trimmer… I highly recommend a Bocsh Palm Trimmer GMR1. It has a unique knurled screw for a sneaky ‚Äúdepth-of-cut” fine adjustment.

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
