It has been months since I last browsed this group. We had our third
girl this summer and time has been tight. Now that I am getting a
little freedom, I had a chance to go (with the family) to the local
wood show; the first one of the season. I had no intentions of buying
anything this time (really). I walked up to a discount table and saw
a slightly used Dewalt DW625 3HP router sitting there without the box
but it had both collet sizes zip-tied to it. No price on it so I
asked the guy what it was selling for. After stepping away to ask
someone else, he came back saying $25. I had to make him repeat it so
I wasn't hearing things: $25!!! Holy crap! I plugged it in to be
sure it wasn't going to be a rebuild and it started up like new! I am
still freaking out! Now I have the router table router I need.
Just thought I would share.
Ya, I know how much I suck and I'm just loving it!
As for knowing if it's a rebuild, besides the points above: doesn't
start, starts with noise, squeeky bearings, noticeable vibration,
doesn't soft start, etc, etc.
