Wish List Tool #1: Small Do-It-All Router

DeWalt's new Compact Router presents a considerably less expensive alternative to larger router combo kits. It’s about the  size of a laminate trimmer and is available with both fixed and plunge bases. With variable speed control and a 1-1/4 peak hp motor, this little dynamo can complete most routing operations, and its small size makes it easy to control. It's a worthwhile addition to any shop and great choice as a first router.
