charley, might it be worth having constant polls arranged, with the results available on a dedicated page????

readers/users could then view the answers to questions such as "which table saw/router/drill/ should I get....." quickly

prehaps have different cat.s for, light, medium and professional duty???

just an idea....
cheers

Hi Steve

I think the idea is great.

My only concern is how do you handle the models that change fairly frequently. Also, it would have to be at manufacturer/model level to cover the areas where a manufacturer might sell their own items up to a certain level and then re-badge items from someone else.

Cheers
Neil

there are obviously issues to be considered........

I was just proposing the idea to charley.

if a model goes out of production, you could take the option out of the poll but still display the result data (ie how popular that model WAS)

at the end of the day, lets not get TOO picky, after all some data may be more use to everybody than no data!

> you could have several model covered under the same poll option (past models and present ones)

sounds good to me, how about we use this thread to start listing all the models to go into the polls. Shall we start with routers? Light, medium and heavy duty.

I'll start with

Porter Cable 7529 1/2" & 1/4" :: Heavy Duty

Festool OF1000e

In the same survey, should we be asking if people ALSO have a router table AND/OR a woodrat as well - after all they seem to tie in together.

Tomorrow I'll create a new section on the forums where I can create polls for the different tools where people can vote (and not post) for which model they recommend. Is that what you had in mind?

Hi folks

Do we have a lot of people here who work in marketing? This sort of info will be invaluable to the men in pin-stripe suits.

Yours

I think thats a good idea too, Adam. Charley, could we keep them as a separate poll to differentiate them from the existing list which I guess would be used mostly in a table? I think many people would have (or would like!) one of each size. Maybe we could have something like 'Professional 1/4" routers' with things like:

Trend T5
Bosch GOF900
Makita RP1110C
Metabo OFE1229
Festool OF1010

(yes this list was lifted straight from Axminster :oops: )

I think it would be best to keep the DIY-type routers off this list as there are so many makes/clones and it all gets a bit confusing.
