So far Ed's given you the best advice...that Hitachi's just butt ugly,
and self-respect plays a role in the shop. I'll start buying Hitachi
again when they're done with their NASCAR phase.
My two-cents: Get the Bosch Duece 'n a Quarter. I had the opportunity
to use a PC at a woodworking school a month ago, and the dominant
feeling I walked away with was "what a piece of shit that was."
Couldn't hold a candle to the Bosch. Couldn't even hold the matchstick.
I realize it wasn't in the subject line, but what about Dewalt? I did a
pretty thorough survey of routers a couple months ago in preparation for
buying one and it seemed like the Dewalt was a pretty well reviewed model.
There is a 2hp or so model with a 3 base form I was going to get. Thoughts?
The hitachi M12V plunge is currently $159.99 at Amazon, and 10% off
code is SAVTENPTJUNE - so that's $144 .
I don't see how you could beat that. More horsepower than the M12VC,
but maybe you don't want the plunge base.
