I have one OLD Craftsman that is a PIA to adjust height on, hence, it is a dedicated dovetailer. This Craftsman looks like a good deal though:
Fixed base and plunge routers are very handy.
The plunge feature is very handy, but not a must, for making plunge cuts.
1-1/2 to 2hp is adequate, for the homeowner and DIY woodworker, and for most routing tasks.
Larger HP models are heavier and more difficult to handle.
PC (Porter-Cable) 690 series is my first choice, and probably the most popular with woodworkers and many cabinet shops.
Bosch offers routers that are excellent and are the choice of many.
I also have another router, a hand-held router, that features a ''micrometer'' type adjustment, an integral light, and a trigger switch---these features are very important to me.
Routers that offer 1/4 & 1/2 chucks, are the way to go---they accept both size router bits.
For many uses and smaller tasks, the 1/4" shank will suffice.
For heavier cutting and larger cutter bits, the larger 1/2" shank is the way to go.
A larger selection of router bits are available in the 1/2" size shank, which will result in less vibration, when using the larger diameter bits, making larger cuts and heavier work.
Do a search on web sites, and read the various reviews that are posted---under ''router discussions''.
Evaluate the pros and cons of the various models and the features they offer.
Get a router model that can be used for both hand-held routing and for mounting in a router table.
Sometime in the future, you may be looking into a router table.
A router table will be very useful. Many routing operations have to be done on a router table.
Bosch offers router tables that fit-up nicely with there routers and other brands/models of routers.
The bench top style router tables are very handy.
They can be portable as well and mounted on the portable stand, for mobility.
For many uses/applications, a ''speed controller'', for your router will be very useful.
You'll need to make cuts, at a slower rpm than the 25,000 rpms, rated on most routers.
Buy the best you can afford.
Good luck---Wishing you the best in your findings.
