As I mentioned earlier, I am fond of the Bosch Colt with the plunge base, but if I didn’t have it I would sure look at the Dewalt. Having a light, to see what you are doing, would really be useful.

And, regarding stopped dadoes, I’m surprised nobody has mentioned that a 1 HP trim router might (will) have problems with dadoes as big as 3/4”. I tried it, parked it, and went back to the 1617 Bosch and the Milwaukee.
