I saw it at the Blue store. It looked pretty nice, included a 3 and
something HP router. For $399. Similar setup from Rockler would have been
about $286 with shipping, no tax. So, is the router worth $110?
I've been drooling over this sucker for quite a while. I think it's
$379 on Amazon with free shipping.
I looked at Rockler and a few others. My impressions.
1. The Freud Router alone price is really good for a 3 (maybe 3.1/2)
HP router. Pretty much unbeatable.
2. The Router has a micro adjust (nice) not sure how easy it would be
when in table
3. If you bought seperate components it would cost a lot more, plus
not really any fences quite as nice unless you spend big bucks for an
Incra, which I don't like/understand anyway. The Freud fence is spilt
and has independant micro adjust.
4. If you bought seperate pieces, you would likely have to route out
the plate hole or lay in your own t-track etc. and it will definetly
The only thing I would likely add is the RouterRaizer, which does have
a model that fits the Freud 2000?? for top access raising. About $90
If you get it let us know what you think. I'll likeley get one in the
next few months.
