Thanks for the comments. I had read some reviews on various plunge routers and the Triton’s do seem to have some good reviews and the price is affordable. It just might take a little bit more time making more passes with raised panels and other heavy routing, but the 2 1/2 HP routers can do that as well. I guess I won’t be doing raised panels so much that I would need to go for a heavier 3+ HP router.

I have been using a PC fixed base 3 HP router for the summer and like the power, but do not like the 2 wrench under the table requirement to change the bit everytime as well as the height adjustment for the bits. Sounds like the plunge routers fix that problem as well as the single wrench bit change with the ratcheting mechanism.
