i want that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's 246.75 hp more than my biggest router.

If I were starting over or a newbie now I'd look more at a compact router first instead of a full size. I would be looking at the Dewalt 611 pk because it has a fixed base and plunge. Once you use a plunge you'll wonder how you did it before.

By recip are you talking a sabre saw or a "Sawzall"?

The large "sawzall" is referred to as a recip or reciprocating saw while the small one is correctly a sabre saw although many call it a jigsaw.
