As you can see, fiddle, everyone has their own opinion of what they like.

After being on LJ for quite a while now, I always think that many of us buy something, then get accustomed to using it, and then we like it a lot because of that familiarity.

I feel just like that with the Makita fixed & plunge base kit mentioned in a couple of posts above, but there is no doubt the other people love their own tool models.

I also have the little Ridgid mini router, and it is a real workhorse. I liked it a lot until I wanted the plunge base and got the Makita kit. And now, compared to the Makita, the Ridgid is not as easy to change bits, nor adjust the depth as the Makita.
