    It looks like a good deal but want your input.
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

    I have that router and have used it for many years. With the dovetail fixture included (a $124.00 value), I think its a pretty good deal. One of the things that people don't realize is that this tool will outlast several of the cheaper brands (voice of experience). Collets do wear out. With good tools, they're replaceable. Cheap tools require the whole motor to be replaced. The added advantage is accessories like the D handle, a spare base for a table install, etc. are generally available. I think you'll be happy with it.

      I have this router and I like it. I have it mounted in my bench and use it to round over edges of much of my work. I run it through a Harbor Freight speed controler.

        Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
        And on each cloud touching the body ?

        I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

        Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

        What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

        Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

        I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
