I put my 621 on a Legacy ornamental mill. At the time I was set
up with a horizontal mortiser so it was “good-bye to router mortising” -
which I don’t enjoy much.

I got a woodrat plungebar too and collet extension, like the eliminator
is some respects. The way the plungebar goes on the 625 is a better
design than the way it goes on the 621 – so if I had to do it over
knowing I would use a Woodrat or a Legacy Mill I would look for a
router that worked well with the plungebar.

We are all talking about expensive joinery machines now where you
pretty much leave the router on the machine and never use it

I’m someone who dips a router into an edge now and again and
it’s infuriating so I bought a Milwaukee bodygrip router because
I like the balance and control I get by holding the barrel of the router.
