I’ve been looking into getting a new router for the past few weeks. I currently have a craftsman pro 2.5 combo that is alright but has some issues. The plunge action and lock isn’t smooth and convient. The bases have a little wobble. The power switch is a hassle and the DC is mediocre and gets in the way too often.
I’ve though about the newer Bosch combo but have read enough mixed reviews to have second thoughts.
Even though it’s double the money I’ve also considered the festool OF1400. I think I can live with the price if it gives me 10+ yrs of as advertised service no questions asked. But what worries me about this route is I know I’ll need some accessories as well which aren’t cheap either. So if I went this route what accessories are necessary for the hybrid woodworker? I want to talley up the total price first.
Also any users of the newer Bosch package give me your thoughts on Pro’s and cons of that.
