Hey gang…I need a recommendation on a router and table combo with a 1/2" collet that I can order from Amazon, or pick up locally at Woodcraft or a big box store. Let’s say $500 or less.
I embarked on a project with an upcoming deliverable date where I need to use a 1/2" shank bit in a size not available in 1/4" shank. I have a 15-year-old Ryobi table/router combo that was given to me and assumed I could just mount another router to it. So I bought a bigger router and figured out the Ryobi has specific mounting holes pre-drilled, and I will not be able to mount another router to the table.
Your recommendations would be great. I can get the job done without the table, but it significantly will cut my processing time if I can use a table. Thanks for your feedback.
