Buyers Guide

It has been said by a very popular football coach that people in the football administration and outside of it who have criticized the concept of defensive football that is embraced by many football teams to win games especially when they are one man down in the field of play have no experience of what the real football play is all about. He has argued that they are only the group of people who read and know about football only through the internet and not by experiencing what happens in the football pitch. For him, they know nothing about football and what is obtained in practical football.

This is exactly the same thing you get when you are talking about the issue of workmen and some woodworking tools. If you have never used one that is faulty and inappropriate before, you will find it very easy to say that a bad workman quarrels with his or her tools. But I tell you in all sincerity, you will agree with me that bad tools reduce efficiency and productivity by almost 80 percent. This is exactly what you must avoid by trying to get the best wood router if you are into carpentry and furniture. For failure to do this will definitely affect your output.

When you want to buy the best wood router for use, the first thing you have to bear in mind is the type of work you are doing with them. This will give you the idea of the particular type to buy among the two main types. If you are always engaged in wood works that involves making designs and drawings, or having to start the cutting at the middle of the wood, then you will need the plunge router otherwise the simple stationary router is the beginner’s router. It is also very advisable for you to buy a ½ inch router instead of a ¼ inch router. This is because a ½ inch router can allow you use both ½ inch and ¼ inch shank while you can only use a ¼ inch shank with a router with ¼ inch collet.

It is also good to always buy routers with up to 2 horsepower, to avoid a reduction in efficiency if you are to use a large sized bit. When you want to pick a router, making some checks will be very necessary. The first is for you to hold it in your hand to check how your hand fits into the shape and size of the router. This is to give you good grip and perfect handling of the router while working and also to make sure you don’t buy overweight router that will be too heavy to carry. Also make sure all the buttons or the on and off switches are in an area you can easily access them while working, without having to remove your hands from the router in question.

After these considerations, you then check on the price of your router and know the best for you.
