Honestly… I picked up one of these on sale about a year ago, and I’ve never used it. Worst impulse buy of all time. Then again, like I said….. I’ve never tried it.

The cool thing about an inverted pin router or an overarm router is the
foot-operated depth control. Without the foot plunge, pin routing is
no fun, though still useful for cutting out some partsl.

Mine’s an overarm and I use it for duplicates. Thinking about using it with the bowl/tray set up I got for Christmas.
It does things that would be hard to do without it. But, I’m not sure I’d buy it again. Maybe someone with more ingenuity/creativity would find it more useful.
