Routers are used in woodworking, trim, laminate, decorative siding and many finish work applications to hollow out a portion of wood or plastic, usually for aesthetic purposes. Depending on experience level and project needs, you can find the perfect router for your tool collection.
When choosing a router, consider your current and future needs, experience level and mounting options. Once these factors are determined, consider the amount of power needed and whether you’re comfortable with a heavy router (which is easier to keep on the work piece) or a light router (which is easier to maneuver).
