6.5 Amp 1-1/4 HP Corded Plunge Base Variable Speed Compact Router Kit With Collet, Base, Straight Guide, (2) Wrenches is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 97.

The plunge feature is a must, you use it once and never go back to fix base. Easy to adjust, and repeatable. Exceded my expectations. Only bad point (and very bad): the outrageous price of the adapter washer and guide bushings. So high it forces you to look for alternate options. I dropped one star just because of it.
