    Comments about 1 3/4 Peak HP D-Handle Router:

    I have 5 routers. One is a production router, PC of course, and 3 other PC routers. I have liked to use the plunge features of the others machines, but the D-handle routers provides unparalleled control compared to any other. I use two routers for the routing of each of the pins and tails when dovetail routing. If you have never tried a D-handle router before, you will impressed with the control it offers. I love mine and can honestly recommend it to you.
