Get your motor going with a Dewalt 618
I got this for my homemade CNC mech. It works great. I'm considering on getting another for a table router or for my second CNC project.

Needed a second router
Needed a second router and figured what's better than a second router with my DW combo? Keep one in the Plunge base and one in the D handle base.
