Thanks everyone for your replies

Robert I have not considered the De Walt simply because I have always felt with De Walt you are paying for a name and I have never had good luck with anything cordless De Walt makes I am just not a Dewalt fan I do have the Ryobi cordless 3/8 impact and I love it i carry it with me in my vehicle to remove lug nuts when needed but it’s the only Ryobi product I have

as for mounting it in a table everything I need it for will be on a small table and i hate having to stretch a cord out i do a lot of work out in my front yard just for the fresh air and not having to clean up a saw dust mess in my garage so I want the port ability of being able to work off of a table that I do not have to use an extension cord for power

I like the harbor freight tools like the new Bower cordless drills they are well made and cheap and their batteries seem to hold up well and are also cheaper than all others but they do not make a cordless router i had thought about just purchasing the bower trim router which i have used a friends but i did not care for the bit height adjustment because when you release the locking lever to adjust it the motor literally falls out of the base there is nothing to prevent it from falling out

I do not understand why all the manufactures of cordless tools do not at the vary least include a battery and charger initially for any of the cordless tools but none do which to me is ridiculous especially when some of the batteries are more than the tools themselves.

I like the looks and feel of the Milwaukee but the cost of batteries are ridiculous and i do not care for the fence guide attachment all of them should take notes of Rigid’s fence guide attachment which Ryobi also utilizes

Decisions, decisions I hate making them LOL
