Hi Danny,

This sounds like a good price. Two years ago this package was selling for $280. Amazon has it listed for $263. A 2 horse router can be used for most operations in the shop with the exception of cutting raised panels. While it is not recommended I have seen some woodworkers using a 2 hp to do this however.

I personally like Dewalt products. I have a 621 and 625 and haven’t had any problems with either of them.
