Will it accept a saw for cutting sheet goods?
Wish I had room for one like that.

No, just the router only.

Ok. Thanks.
What are going to use it for? Cabinet carcase construction, maybe?
Just curious.

A lot of shops, in California anyway, where the manufacturer is,
they had these for face frame cabinets. They would dowel
the face frames and and dado/rabbet the case joints. You
can buy special bits from Her-Saf that allow high feed rates
with not as much heat build up and they are threaded onto
a holder in the collet so changing cutters is faster.

The panel router makes a dado of more consistent
depth than a table saw because it compensates for cupping
of the board by riding on a floating carriage.

Exactly, cabinet construction.
Dadoing jambs mostly, rabbeting out for backs. It’s great for stopped dado’s
Rabbets for drawer box construction.
An occasional circle here and there. I can cut splines with it, v-groove panels.
I can do the routed mdf raised panel doors.

Lots of other stuff as well, but mostly I will just use it to cut dado’s

Wow! That sounds like a great tool to add to the shop. I see now where it would be really useful.
Thanks for the quick education. I had no idea.
