Title: Which router to use with Woodpecker MFT template
Post by: ColossusX on May 16, 2020, 09:45 AM
I've read that the 1400 has issues with centering when using template bushings and the 1010 does not.  But the 1400 seems like the better router to get for all round use.  Or should I just stick with my DW618 to use woth the template bushings? My current routers are the 618 and the cordless Makita with a rail adapter.

I wouldn't buy it just for this job, but having used many different routers with the Woodpeckers Hole Boring Jig, nothing matches the Festool 2200. Not only does it have the guts to do the job quickly, the dust collection is unmatched and this is a job where clouds of dust are created.
