New Bosch MRC23EVSK or 1617EVSPK - 22 replies

Well I’m soon going to buy my first router. I have used one a few times and after playing around with the controls of the dewalt and bosch at lowes, I liked the bosch better. It sounds like the 1617 series is a pretty well reguarded router, but they just came out with this new MRC23. It is $100 more, but has a lot of enhancements over t...

Super Dust Deputy vs thien baffle - 11 replies

Okay for a lot of us out there $219 bucks for one of these super dust deputy cyclones would be too much money, and a home made thien baffle would be more cost effective, but…. Has anybody compared the two of them on the same DC? I just bought a HF 2hp DC today for $160 with the 20% off coupon and planned to make a thien baffle for it w...

Wixey or igaging - 4 replies

Both seem to offer the same line up of products. I read a lot of people don’t like the locking mechanism of the wixey digital protractor. Most seem to think the wixey is good to within .1degrees whereas the igaging is within .2degrees. I like how the igaging has a hold function as well as the relative level with the earth. I think ...

Which is better, rigid 4512 or powermatic 63a? - 8 replies

Ha!! It never fails, you find one good deal and another falls in your lap. I picked up that powermatic 63a with biesemyer fence for $375 and now found a rigid 4512 for $200. Is it worth the hassle to buy the rigid, swap it with my stand and biesemyer fence and sell off my powermatic? The rigid only has 13 amps, but I might be able to swap ...

It also said 1.5HP, but from some of th...

I’ve always been kinda leary of spending big bucks on a used item, especially 8-10 years old. It doesn’t scare me too much though because i&...
