Won’t say I’m experienced but I’m halfway through building one. I found the $5 router plans online and there’s an LJer, Derek, from Australia that also has some plans on his site. I’ll post links if you want them. If you use allen keys for your blades then the number of blades is limited only by the number you are willing to grind, as long as you make a way to hold each one. A lot of the plans called for drilling a hole in a thumb screw, but I just found different eye bolts of the right sizes. Seems like it will be fine so far. I also liked that I can make flat front and V front blades of each size and it’s easy enough to make two or more different sized bodies for different jobs.

Only reason it’s not finished is it’s lower on the priority list so I only work on it sporadically in my already very limited shop time.
