I have the 7518 motor mounted...

Anderson J from Pawtucket, RI Posted January 27, 2013
I have the 7518 motor mounted in my table. It's a bit too powerful for me to handle as a hand held router but it really excels as a table router. I can't see using any other for a full size table. It works any stock handily. I've had zero issues with this router. My only negative, and it's not really that big a negative is the noise. This router is loud. I find it especially irritating because to my ears, it has a particularly higher pitch ring in the general noise it makes. I had it checked out to be sure the motor was okay, and the router is fine. I seem to have sensitive ears so good hearing protection is a must with this particular router. It's a excellent router, just loud.

I had a DeWalt 618 in...

Josh H from Yelm, WA Posted November 6, 2012
I had a DeWalt 618 in a small Bosch router table for a long time. When I replaced my table saw I decide to build a custom router table in the extension wing, and part of that setup was the Bench Dog Pro Lift. I had been thinking about buying a second router {up to that point it was going to be another DeWalt 618 just so all the accessories would be interchangeable} so one could always live in the router table and the other could be setup for bench top operations. Well, with the Bench Dog I would have had to buy an adapter for the DeWalt and since I was in the market for a second router anyway I decided to pick one of these up (especially since Rockler was running the free Freud router bit set promo!) to put in the router table. The DeWalt then became the dedicated bench top router. This router is massive, and heavy - definitely belongs in the table. It has a TON of power, and is built like a tank. This will handle literally anything you throw at it. The slow start is great too. If you need a powerful router, ideally for router table operations, pick this up (and grab the Freud bit set if you still can) and you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic Porter & Cable 3 1/4 HP Router! I recycled an old De Walt Radial Arm Saw Stand to accommodate my new router and Rockler Table Top. Now I need a Rockler, & Porter & Cable emblem to attach to the front with the De Walt Sign!
