Yeah so which one would be better to get, like can't you just set the plunge router all the way down and it's virtually identical to a fixed router? It says fixed is better for edging, but why is that, just because of the weight?
it seems like the fixed router i linked doesn't have variable speed, which would be pretty bad for a 3/4" roundover if it's 25000 rpm.
So should I buy the plunge router 99.99 regular 200?
from my understanding you can do anything with a plunge router, some stuff might be a little more challenging though. You can' t do "plunging" with a fixed based router. So if you only can have 1 router it's better to have a plunge router.
