2-HP is considered small by most on this group for a table router setup. This is
mainly do to the large bits that lend them selves to table only use.
If your not going to do raised panels etc you may get by. Just take the handles
I have a 2-1/4 HP Bosch 1617 in my table but, so far all I've been doing is
dovetails and box joints and a little joining practice so I get along fine.
When I get more proficient I'll go for a 3-1/2 HP.
I would buy a router that was made with
extra travel on the motor so you could
raise it high enough to compensate for
the thickness of the adapter plates and
table casting, I lose about 3/4" with mine.
