I am in the process of completing and equipping my wood shop. This will be for hobby purposes and "honey do" projects only. I need to purchase routers to replace "hand-me-downs" I've had for years. I'm not sure if it would be best to stick with one brand or cherry pick the best from various brands. Over time I plan on purchasing a palm/trim router, a plunge router, and a router suitable to fit in a router table. I did go over to Tool Reviews and take a look. But, most of the reviews are very old.

I'm interested in durability, ease of changing bits, power to get the job done, convenience of use (power switch/ handling), and your overall comments on likes and dislikes.

You guys are a valuable source of information! In fact, I bought my table saw based on advice I received here and couldn't be happier (thanks for that!). So what say you?? If you were in the market for new routers, where would you start? As mentioned above, I will eventually be buying at least 3 as funds permit and projects require.

Thanks in advance.
