Topic tags/keywords: router

I am looking for a Porter Cable 7518 router if anyone has one they want to get rid of. I might also be interested in a Milwaukee 5625-20. I need something big to put in a router table. I might also be interested in lift plates for either of them so if you have a lift plate/router combo, let me know.

You might consider getting a small shaper. A 3/4 hp or 1 hp inductive motor shaper doesn’t cost much and they are stronger than a “3hp” router with a universal motor. They run smoother and have better lift systems, as well as holding 1/4” and 1/2” router bits and shaper bits.

By the time you get a router, lift accessories, and a table, you can very easily spend more money and it still is not as smooth as a small shaper.

Unfortunately, I have to get this a little at a time. I have a wife to answer to, and since I can’t find one on craigslist, a shaper is out. Plus my ryobi router just ain’t cutting it, no pun intended.

I have a Jessem ‘Mast-R-Lift”, that fits a 7518, that I’m willing to part with but I’m keeping my 7518.

It is branded Rockler on the top but the back side says that is made by Jessem. I have all the throat plates
with it also.

If you are interested let me know.
