I should have posted this after I bought it, but it's worth keeping an eye on. A few weeks ago I snagged a Metabo HPT 2.25HP plunge and fixed base router kit from Menards for $86.34. I had actually expected it to be $99, which was still going to be a smoking deal on a kit that costs $165 on clearance ! I don't know where the other $12.66 came from, but you can bet I'm not complaining. Coupled with a merchandise return certificate brought my out of pocket price to about $72. Menards is clearing them out, so the stock is few and far between, but if you're in the market for one and have a Menards nearby, keep an eye peeled! It is a nice kit and badly needed for a furniture project I'm working on. I wish it came with an edge guide and spindle lock, but it's such a good deal I don't even mind.
