What's the cheapest, good (wood) router for me?


#1

Thinking about getting a router, don’t know jack about it, my friend does but he only knows how to use one. I think i’m only going to use it to route mounting plates, button holes, and to make a chamfer on the edges of my cases.

Any suggestions? Something below 100 dollars if possible. Difference between plunge and non plunge?

rent it at home depot or lowes just about $20. save your money.:angel:


#3

or i can buy one because i actually want to get into building other stuff someday. like, furniture, which I don’t have lawl. Just to kill time.


#4

lol, when I first saw the title of the thread I was thinking Linksys or some shit like that.


#5

lawl, “new and improved, routes wood AND internet traffic.”

just for the love of god don’t get a craftsmans. The depth on craftsman routers tend to drift. I had to clamp the thing down with a C clamp to keep it steady. Shitty thing that ate up part of my finger and sucks.


#7

yeah, my friend who knows how to build stuff was all like “routers scare me.”

routers eat fingers for breakfast.

Make sure you get dust mask, goggles and ear plugs…
