For your budget of $130, only the small 1HP mini-routers are available.
Available in fixed base as well as plunge base.
Limited to 1/4" shank router bits, which is suitable for small tasks.
A plunge base can be purchased separately, at a…"
Check with your sharpening service, if they can accomplish this task.
Check with a tool-machine shop, in your area.
(Most don't possess the skill to perform this task. They may be fearful of breaking the drill bit).
Bent drill bits…"
#1 BandSaw---for cutting curves, as well as straight line cuts---short and fairluy long pieces.
A very handy tool, for use in any shops.
For long pieces, an infeed and outfeed extension is very helpful, to support the workpiece.

My pics, from your list, are:
For a joiner, my choice is a router table.
I 've had two joiners, a 4" and 6", got rid of both of them.

Thank you Ken for the suggestions I was actually trying to decide between the K4 and the K5 but was leaning towards the K4, I've got the basic frame design for my work bench and I'm probably going to use metal diamond plate but the ladder for shelves idea I am definitely doing and also the fire hydrant water dispenser those were great ideas that I'll definitely use and I was going to put an emblem on it but was going to paint it but your idea to chisel it is a much better way to do it. Thank you for the ideas I just can't wait to be able to start making my bench at least I'll have a few months to design it while my arm heals.
