    New Router!!

    Last month was my birthday, and my elder sister gave me some money to spend on tools.
    After hesitating and checking what was available here and what I was going to need in short I decided to get this Dewalt 621 router.

    According to Pat Warner it is a good one and I've been using it during this weekend. There are things that I have to get used to, but I'm quite happy with it so far.

    Funny enough, the Dewalt distributor here doesn't carry all the Dewalt range of tools and only a few of the router models.

    Congratulations Toni, I've had a 621 for several years now. No complaints so far I've got it's big brother mounted in the router table too. Both are great work horses.
    Aloha,

    Tony, that is one good router for sure, and I understand the the dust collection on it is VERY good, one thing that ALL of my routers lack. For me, my hand held routers are the worst tools in the shop for making a mess, worse than my lathes, because of the very fine dust the router create.

    Congrats!

    That is terrific Toni. You are going to love that router. Each router I have has a little different personality. Once you two become friends, it will be great.

    I can see it now...Toni and his router, riding down the road together having a grand time sharing shop stories, then stopping by the pub for a pint and some pretzels. Maybe even shoot a game of pool or two. Good times.
