I popped for the $99 Freud on sale on Woodcraft and must say I'm
disappointed. Here's why:
1. There's way too much slop in the above table depth adjustment. The
slop isn't just verticle. The bit wiggles horizontally as it is rising
2. The spindle lock is erratic. It takes too much futzing to get it to
3. The adjustment tool is too short to reach the recessed fitting for
the table-top clamp lock. Good thing I had a longer allen wrench on hand.
I'm going to give the router a little slack to take into account user
error, but all in all it is less than I expected.
I'll be interested to hear from others on their experience.
