To my heartfelt disgust, I have been informed by the great members here that if I want to do any serious routing, like raised door panels and such, I would need to replace my small 1/4 inch shaft router with a larger 1/2 inch, and also replace my bit collection.
I have looked into these larger routers and have discovered a large difference in price among the many manufactures.
I would like to know what 1/2 inch router you own, and if you like it and if you have had any problems with it.
Thanks very much
Hi Mike, I dunno what a Ve is, the Vc is the 2-1/4 HP model. Nice little hand held but a little short on sand for raised panels. V is, I believe the fixed speed and the VS the variable speed version. Try reconditionedsales.com, most of their Hitachi stuff is listed as "on backorder" but they have some specs listed. Handy for comparison purposes.
Steven - Sears has a similar setup for $80.

I think I have decided on the Hitachi M12V.
Now... there is a M12V2..... a M12Vc.... and a M12Ve
Cant find all three on one site to compare the differences.... So... can anyone shed some light on this for me?
