Neither, get a plunge.

I'd leave the fixed base for a dedicated flush trim/edge router.

I built a half dozen boxes using a friggin' sawzall to cut the hole. If buying the right tool is REALLY cost prohibitive, and you can't borrow one or use a high school shop room or something, it CAN be done with a simple jigsaw or reciprocating saw. You just have to go slowly.

well i cut some perfect circles with the skill saw i linked which is basically all im looking for which is why i asked which one would you guys pick between the two i know there not the best but it either one will do unless you can find a plund\ge for cheap

Jigsaw works nearly fine, what I use now is a Ryobi wireless speed saw. It has the attachment that cuts a near perfect circle. It was 40 bucks since i already have the wireless tools that include batteries. Love it!!

i dont have patiences for a jigsaw see what i did with the fixed saw was take a peice of wood measure the dia of the size of the hole i need drilled one hole in the middle of the wood then drilled to holes and a large 1/2 hole at the end of the wood then mount the router screw the wood in the middle and cut a circle... it would **** perfect for me anyways kinda like a ghetto jasper
