The 611 is nice. I have a couple of them, and use them often. I would get a 2-1/4 hp kit first. They can handle just about any task you d dream up.

1/4” collet being the main limitation of the trim routers.

Thanks…I am leaning toward that timeline, and getting the trim router “eventually.”

Having seen the results of the recent Incra and Sawstop posts, I’m reticent to ask for brand suggestions, haha. Leaning toward the PC 895, or the Bosch 1617, given that both allow for above-table adjustments and will fit the existing holes in my router plate.
