Porter-Cable 690LR Router
Shape wood like the pros (that's what she said!) with the Porter-Cable 690LR 11 Amp Fixed Base Horsepower Router ($115). This highly rated router is powered by a 1-3/4 HP motor and generates a pretty crazy 27,500 RPM for accurate cuts. The 690LR features a super precise (down to 1/128 of an inch) micrometer depth adjuster, a dust-sealed switch and sealed ball bearings, and dual ergonomic rubber handles.
