Router Recommendation Wanted

Recommended Posts

Looks good, I can't comment on the build quality as I've never seen one of those before now.

I like the price though, and the hp rating. :D

What are you going to be using it for mainly? Do you need to plunge rout or just general stuff.

Do you need a large capacity router or maybe something smaller? All valid thoughts.

I use a Makita 3612 1/2" router. Strong as an ox, but maybe 3 to 4 times the price of the Milers-falls router.

I also use a 1/4" Makita laminator router. close to $250 aud.

With those I've got all bases covered.

Good luck with the search,

Stu :D

never seen one.

A good router is worth its weight in gold.

I use a dewalt plunge router with dust collector and I have 3 porter cable router and never had trouble with any of them.

I guess it would depend on what you want to do and how much you will be routing.

I use mine all the time building solid bodies for guitar and bass.

makita is another good router.

you will want to stay with a 1/4 and 1/2 collets. the 1/2 router bits are more $$ but if your

routing body shapes this is much easier.

the 1/4 router bits are good for pickup cavities and neck routing.

Good luck hope that helps :D:D

never seen that particular brand before, but my motto is "buy cheap, buy twice".

i have a hitachi router, been used and abused for the last 12 - 13 years, and no signs of stopping it yet.

course to replace it, i'd be looking at about $400 but as they say, you get what you pay for.
