I own four different routers, one of which is the DeWalt DW621. It's by far my favorite, and the go-to for almost any project. Set-up is easy, execution is flawless, and the quality in the finished product is without peer. I've used it to build furniture, cabinets and entry doors from scratch, and have never been frustrated with this DeWalt. My prior favorite has been relegated to strictly biscuit use, and another sits and gathers dust. This DeWalt has plenty of power for use on all woods, including IPE and maple, yet will provide a very smooth and detailed finish on the thinest of aspen or veneered plywood, and it comes with 1/4 and 1/2 inch collets for universal application with all bits. The depth stop and auxiliary edge guide are very intuitive. Dust collection with a shop vac or collection system is excellent. Sightlines are open and direct so I can easily see where my cutline is. This machine has been very heavily used, yet shows no signs of wear - but if I should outlast it, I'll buy another. You can't go wrong.
