I dont use my router to often its a old ass one. Belonged to my dad. Im much more affraid of the table saw.Do you have any other Makita tools that use the same battery?
But in my opinion.. I have two routers, both corded.
If you are only doing small jobs, and don't plan on hard woods or lot of hogging out..
Then battery night work for you.
But anything long term.. Corded.
And agreed with above. Routers are the scariest tool to use.
But can do so much with them.
FTW...Some tools I go with corded. Routers are one of those, due to the power needed to spin certain router bits. Should you go cordless, just remember that the minute you put the battery in, the bit will spin if the power switch was inadvertently switched "on".
