Great Router for the Price
Wanted a 1/2" router, and didn't want to pay several hundred, I saw the Makita M3600G, 1650 watts of power and appears well made. Has spindle lock and great collet assembly. Doesn't have soft start or speed control, but since I have it in a router table the soft start isn't needed and neither is the speed control as I only use bits up to 30mm diameter. The plunge mechanism could be a little smoother but since I am using a router lift this is not a problem either. Don't know how they make them for the price.
