The Dewalt 621 is a great router i have it on my Woodrat the thing is to die for but if I were going to get my first router I would go with the porter cable combo kit or a combo kit from someone else the two bases are a must for so many things and I think I paid 199 for the porter cable set one thing is for sure if your a serious power tool guy you will be like me and have close to 20 good routers in the shop before you know it I sold a few off but I still have several here is one thing to make sure of make sure you get a router that will take 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch bits. don’t buy a craftsman they suck. A festool is over kill for a new one router guy what if he hates woodworking after a few months give the guy time to work his way up to a 700 dollar router. I am all for the best tool but damn lets get serious. and the 621 is a great router I love mine and it is a major work horse in my shop.
