    Anyone over 18 beginning their bass building efforts in the Seattle area and in need of a introductory level router and table? I have a Craftsman router with 1/4" collet and an accompanying plastic routing table to donate your way as a means to get you going. The router also has a hard case. This is not for sale at any price.

    This is a fully functioning router that has seen some use. It isn't Porter Cable or DeWalt quality, but it isn't a Harbor Freight bargain brand either. I recently upgraded my router and this is just collecting dust (literally!), so I'd like to see this go to someone who desires to build their own bass but could not otherwise afford to purchase a router.

    PM me and I'll work a way for me to get this into your hands. If you are under 18 years old, please be sure that your parent is with you at the time of exchange.

    all the best,

    R

    p.s. Mods - if this thread should be elsewhere, please delete it vs moving it to the For Sale forums. I'm looking to give someone in the Luthier forum a little incentive to get building, and not looking to line my pocket with any proceeds. I've received so much from this group here that this is the least I can do to pass it along.

    That's really nice, I personally woouldn't get rid of it though. You mentionned on another post you want to go pro.

    I would just keep my tools, I don't know how many pro setups I've seen where they've got literally a dozen routers all setup for different jobs. you might regret giving it away at some point in time.

    Hi Phil,

    After experiencing my new Porter Cable router, it'd be impossible to return to the Craftsman for my routing needs. The PC's added accuracy with the fine tune depth is critical for things like neck pockets. While the Craftsman will get the job done, the added ease of obtaining consistent dead on accuracy with the PC has saved me a significant amount of set-up time. When it comes time to add another router (or three), I'll be looking for additional PC's for the shop.

    all the best,

    R

    :D

    what a great time it was indeed to have been playing in a band in Seattle ... I gotta go dig out the scrapbook and watch a few of the old show videos now (and I recently bought a VHS -> DVD burner so I can get them saved onto a more stable format that doesn't degrade with each viewing)

    all the best,

    In 1991-92, Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden came out of Seattle nothingness into being top acts, followed by record labels scouring the area looking for bands to sign. Also followed by supermodels wearing flannel shirts, as grunge was now fashionable.
