I am in need of a new router and have been looking at the following:
Porter Cable 800 series
All three appear to have the features/functions that I am looking for: variable speed, plunge and fixed base, multiple collets.
In speaking with the folks at my local Woodcraft store they mentioned that much of the router aftermarket products (dove tail jigs, etc.) are made to Porter Cable specifications (Yes, I know that Woodcraft is a PC distributor). The staff also stated that they had customers with other routers complaining that addons did not quite fit or function as expected.
1. Can anyone out there verify the above statement from experience or good solid hearsay evidence?
2. What recommendations do you have for a new router without spending a gazillion dollars?
