Personally I wouldn’t put a cordless router in a table. The whole purpose is portability. Use the cordless one for that.

Since I already have Milwaukee tools, I went with that router. I’m very happy with it. I agree, I don’t use the variable speed mostly what I’m doing is flush trimming, light chamfers, etc. But, I am impressed with the accuracy of adjustment and power. M18 batteries are fantastic.

I’ve owned Ryobi tools, they may work for other people, but IMO they aren’t even in the same league with Mil or DW. After I got the Mi18 set, it was very clearly evident how pitiful the Ryobi was.

I totally agree with ControlFreak – at some point I think you should make a decision to stick with the same system. With the poor performance & battery issues I constantly had, I gave all my Ryobi tools away and was glad to see the lime green go bye bye With the exception of a couple DW 12V drills (which I love) I’m in the ‘Red Zone”.

DW is now owned by Black and Decker, and I hope they don’t do what the did to Stanley.
