    Welcome @chrislott I don’t think that Brad has written plans.

    It’s coming your way as soon as 3.0 is done!

    Really?? I’m liking the sounds of that since I haven’t started one yet, But I am getting my winterization thing done and things should settle down for me pretty soon

    We can make a deal. V2.0 is almost perfect. I still want those extra rails to put the fence on the left side of the blade.

    Oooooo sounds fair to me, I forgot about those….again LOL. Yep I’m in

    No plans. It’s fairly straight forward once you start and thing of the issues:

    It needs to be flat
    It will sag if not built properly
    You need clearances for any extras (rails, DC, etc)

    @dabbs

    I know you asked what router. Do you have any router now? I am a BIG fan of the MRC23EVSK kit with the fixed and plunge base. The trigger in the handle is sweet and the LED light is nice. Then get a second MRF01 fixed base if you want to have one.

    If you already have a router and this will never get moved, get the 1617EVS and just leave it there.

    I have both and both are great. If I was to have just one, it would be the MRC23.

    Ok good to know, Yes I already have one but it’s an old B&D. I wouldn’t want to use it in a table permanently because I’d like to have the above table adjustment, So I’d keep it for other things. Thanks

    ya, then get the MRC23 combo then get the 1617.

    You will want both at some point. They both have above table adjust-ability but it’s a little bit clunky.

    Mine feels kinda big for finer stuff like trying to trim laminate on a door edge, I spect a small trim router is the ticket for that anyway. I’ll ask ya this; Which base do you like better for the fine above table adjustment?

    both are the same. You still need to reach under the table to lock/unlock. They just have an allen key up top so you can see where the height is. No difference between them.

    Oh, and get a colt as well, but wait as long as you can because my hope is they will do an upgrade within the year. (DC, LED light, Swivel cord)

    I will be doing some laminate again soon but I don’t think it’ll be on a thin edge like before so I can wait a bit… So no favorite for you between the 1617 and mrc23 as far as the adjustments go for a table. I’ll get the combo with whatever router I go with.Thanks

    I think the expense for a table would be overkill, and you likely won’t be able to see the light anyways, unless you had a lean plate.

    Help, I’m not sure what you mean??

    I don’t know why, that was clear as mud. If the router is going to stay in the table, I would just get one of the 1617’s. The word above was suppose to be lexan, the lights with a normal plate would be pretty worthless I think. The MRC23 costs more than the 1617, so for table use I think the 1617 would be great.

    THANKS! It’s one of the most used, best mods in my woodworking shop. Love this thing. The key for me is the ease of use with the table saw fence. Such a nice thing to have with the router.
