My old hand-me-down Craftsman 1/4" collet router is not going to work with this thing (the included router bits are 1/2" shank, and my sub-base doesn't accept 1 3/8" template guides). THE BIG QUESTION: What router (generally or specifically) should I purchase? I've just started woodworking, sort of stumbled into it via new (old) house purchase and kitchen remodel. Looking mostly to build small furniture (shelves, storage bins, wine racks, etc.).
Oh, and I try to buy most of my stuff used - is this a good idea with a router?
