Well, at the moment a Hitachi M12v router is only $20 more than a Bosch RA1166 plunge base! So, I was thinking of buying the Hitachi and putting it in my table instead of the Bosch. Although I have read that plunge routers don't belong in tables, I have also seen several threads here about how great the Hitachi is in a table; right? I have never actually needed a plunge router, but I would always pull the Hitachi out if I found a need.
Questions: 1) The Hitachi has some sort of adaptor for 1/4" bits rather than a collet like the Bosch. Does it work alright, or will I be cursing my decision every time I use it? (Sadly, I have a bunch of 1/4" bits from when all I had was a 1/4" router)
2) Does this plan make sense? Any criticism (other than "get a backbone and make your own decisions, you wimp") would be appreciated.
