the last 12-days deal. I did order it, figuring on the good return policy at lowes, in case there is something horrible about this thing. Otherwise, this router specs out very well for my purposes, and WAY better than the Skil clunker i’ve been using. 13A, 1/2” collet, soft start/vari speed, dust port, two bases… it all checks out. i cant find many reviews of the thing, and some have been stellar, and some have been bad. I do know that Freud is generally a good brand, but I dont know what this whole Avanti line is about, other than I’m using a Avanti 3 bit set and they seem very well made, are holding a fine edge so far, and all that. Seems like it’s in the Dewalt, PC, Bosch range, which is where I need to be. Festool is probably way overkill.
