You don’t need to be doing woodworking very long before you decide that you want a router, but the question is how to choose the best one out of the enormous choice. As a beginner there are a couple of major considerations that will influence your choice – first, you probably don’t want a high end router with a bunch of features that you don’t yet have the skill to use, and second, you do want a router that has sufficient features and capabilities that will last you for some time – you don’t want to be looking to replace it as soon as you progress a little bit.
The DeWalt DW618PK 2-1/4 HP Router kit is Dewalt’s complete router kit which gives you the router motor plus both a fixed and a plunge base all in one cost-effective package. Some of the excellent features include a clear LEXAN sub-base, precise, rotating depth adjustment ring and patented through-the-column dust-collection system, all of which add up to an innovative, versatile router kit. Highly recommended.
