In the big routers, I think one gets into religious fervor. There are
several good and excellent brands. I've not heard of any major brand
where the owner was ready to trash it. Ever since I saw how yours
worked in a table, I''ve been sold. Instead of pouring extra money in
a router lift, I bought a table and fence instead. I'm not sure what
all the fuss was about late shipment dates. I ordered mine on 7/18 and
it shipped today. With free shipping, its due here in 6 days. I think
I got my money's worth at $269 drive out price.
