Yes. And don't even THINK ABOUT using the panle raising bits without a

You can get a useable router of that capacity for less than $200. Look for
a Hitachi MV12x or a Freud FT2000e, or similar. Soft start is good.
Once you have a table and a big router, you'll find all sorts of projects

A Bosch 1617EVS or PC 69x or 89x will also turn those bits, but you
may need an extra pass.
I have an extra Bosch 1617 base screwed to my table, and have never
longed for a bigger router, but I do have experience doing the same

The table is mandatory regardless of the motor.
For heavy duty use, I prefer a real shaper over any router.
