I went to a pawn shop yesterday & seen this poor dirty forgotten about router that really look liked it needed a new home. So I offered the man $24.00 for it & he said happy routing. It loves me. I cleaned it up & went & bought it some new teeth lol & look at what we made together. lol I know crazy right?

Maybe not so crazy. Love is what keeps us going. Not bad for a freehand. Have fun with your new router.

Nice project for you and your new router. Every contented woodworker knows how to make points with the other half :).
