Sean, the curve guide thing actually works fairly well, almost too well, cause if there is even a little dimple in the template, there will be one in your finished work.......DAMHIKT!!
That is a great router at a great price, if I'd not just put new bearings in my M12, I'd buy that from you in a heartbeat Ken!
If anyone is looking for a WORKHORSE for your router table, buy this and one of them variable speed box things the they sell and you are set, oh and the Router Raizer, for above the table adjustments (I think it fits?).
Good strong router, at a good price!
