Hi All,

Bosch 1617 evs
DeWalt 618
Festool OF 2000E (on the rat)

Not bad for someone who hates (and that's not too strong a word here) motorized routers. I have more arm-powered ones--but when it comes down to productivity I cave-in.

Besides, if I'm gonna screw-up a board there's nothing as fast as a powered router :wink: .
