Thanks everyone.

It’s morning here in Oz and I will shortly be off to work. As the general concensus seems to be that “too many routers is never enough”, I will drop in at the shop on my way home and trust that it is still there.

Actually Patron, your comment about palm routers also really helped. This Bosch is a plunge router, but even at 400W it must be capable of doing the type of work that I used a palm router for when I made my box with the inlaid lid. That means that it is most likely sufficient for a lot of what I will be doing with it.

Brit, in the same line, I don’t expect that the jobs I do will be much more demanding (of the router that is) than the projects you do. So again, it suggests that it will be a valuable “first” router to have.

Bertha, a big router is certainly still on my list, but it will have to wait a while.
