    should i get this?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/RYOBI-2-HP-PLUNG...QQcmdZViewItem

    I'm looking for a cheap router, less than $100 and this will come out to $90 shipped. And i've heard nothing but good things about Ryobi...I'm just tired of jigsawing everything. i will just be using it for sub cutouts and possibly rectangular port cutouts. is this gonna be good for me?

    i know its a refurb but it has a 1 year factory warranty so it seems like an ok deal to me....if it breaks after a year it'll be time for a new one anyway...

    Re: should i get this?

    i've checked walmarts around here....they don't sell any routers at all for some reason...

    hardware stores only have B&Ds and dewalts for $200+...

    but i'll go check out lowes' prices next time i get a chance...

    I have the same router, and it works great. I got it for $54 from Amazon.com, as a refurb with a one year warrenty. You might want to check there. You can also get a Japser Jig from Amazon for like $29, so you can make some perfect circles.

    Re: should i get this?

    a plunge bit that's atleast 3/4" and a roundover bit should be what you need...

    i got a ryobi at home depot for around 50 bucks. it works great for being their cheapest...

    Re: should i get this?



    well i got it in today, everything's in perfect shape, was just wondering where i could find a cutting bit for it, it only came with a 1/4" collet adaptor and 2 screws, not sure what they are for.

    sorry for asking n00bx questions but i just want to learn how to use this thing correctly...

    You could find them anywhere. Go to sears they have a wide variety of selections. Or Home Depot/Lowes. Get a Straight Bit for cutting normal holes etc, and a Round-Over bit for rounding corners.
