    Rigid router kit

    Does anyone have the rigid router kit for 200.00.I am in the market ,I just sold my skill 1 1/2 HP piece of ##@#@ and I have a new router table and it is lonely for a router.I am looking for something that is powerful enough for a table and nice for freehand routing.I guess raising the bit from the top of the router table would be nice to,without the lift kit.

    Don't know about the Ridgid kit, but Woodworkers Supply has/had the Hitachi 2.25 hp kit - fixed and plunge bases - for $139.00. I bought one a month ago, Shipping included, it was $152.00.

    I really like it, too. The router has plenty of power, and it's pretty quiet. Both bases function just as they're supposed to.

    If I was going to spend $200 for a Ridgid I would go $215 for the Milwaukee 5616-24. The DeWalt 618 kit is $199 at Lowe's but I took mine back and got the Milwaukee. The Hitachi is less still and looks like a nice little setup.
