    what would you do with this????

    i have acquired a used router,,this is the one http://www.cpomakita.com/routers_and_trimmers/3606.html
    what would you do with it if you had it? this isnt the only router i have so it could be set up for one thing if that is your thought.. wanting some ideas.. almost pitched it cuz its only 1/4" collet and 1hp.

    Ditto

    Put a round over bit, or a flush trim bit in it and leave it there, very useful

    Fellows, I think you just fell for a backdoor gloat! He had no intention of getting rid of it.

    Hey Larry if you can throw it up this direction with out landing in a couple feet of snow,toss away. I agree with Chuck & Stewart. For triming laminate ,round over or even for small inlays.Also great for mortising hinges. Its kinda like you can't have to many clamps....same goes for routers.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Yep, flush trim bit permanently installed... even though I've irrationally sworn never to use a 1/4 shank bit ever again...

    Thanks,

    Bill
