Christmas was good to me, meaning my wife. I was hoping to get a good router and imagine my surprise when i unwrapped this beast. Freud 3 1/4 hp plunge router.

Friday I found this 12 1/2” bench top planer for $75.00. Couldn’t bring myself to say no so I grabbed it up quick fast and in a hurry.

I received the same router for Christmas. So far I like it, but the only knock I would have against it is the size. The distance across the handles makes it harder to build the cut out in my table. Oh and one other thing is mine didn’t come with an adapter for the PC style inserts. I did pick one up at Woodcraft though.
Really nice score on the planer.

Nice score indeed, I paid something like 200€ for mine several years ago, and it’s not that flat, even after a first hacking attempt. Yours has four sliding points, I’m pretty sure it’s far more accurate. EU tools, you know… :)

good for you, probably better fitting for a BLOG of FORUM post than a COMPLETED WOODWORKING PROJECT…

Thanks. I did go buy the freud bushings from woodcraft because you need the adapter any way.

I have the same router as well and I love it! I only use it as a handheld as I have a PC in my table. Congrats on the new toys!!!
