Cut through the hype surrounding wood routers and learn what really counts when picking the best machine for the way YOU work.
A router is one of the most versatile tools commonly found in the wood shop. Because of this, the vast majority of wood working enthusiasts adds a router to their tool set at some time or another. But, how do they pick one from the hundreds available? (We searched Amazon.com for "wood routers" and found over 1000 choices.) How do enthusiasts chose the features right for them?
If you're such a person thinking about investing in a wood router for your own enjoyment, we suggest that you use a systematic approach to narrow down your choices. We used this approach when we bought our Porter-Cable 893PK Router Package. The key in this approach is to constantly ask yourself if the router or features you are looking at will benefit YOU the most ... based on YOUR needs.
A 3 step approach to help you pick the perfect router for your woodworking needs.
Over on the top right side of this page, you'll find related articles that will help you with steps 1 and 2. For step 3, go study Rockler and Amazon. Rockler provides a more focused researching experience. Amazon give you a huge selection in addition to a whole lot of great information. We use these two merchants for 90% or more of our router related purchase.
Each merchant features a state of the art online ordering system, complete with the latest safety features. They both have excellent return policies and outstanding customer service. Most importantly, these are large companies with great reputations who (we think) will be around for a long time. Thus, you can add them to your list of favorite places to shop online where you'll benefit from years of satisfying purchase experiences.
