With just a slight edit, there is a pretty good "That's what she said." joke in there.

I find it interesting that a number of routers are as powerful as many milling machines(Bridgeport, Excello...). That's a lot of handheld power when you think about it.

Keep in mind that routers (drills, saws, etc) are all direct drive (Skil saw worm drive not so) and that the HP rating is peak and has limited torque - put too much load on it and the motor stops. For a mill or lathe the motor power (torque) is multiplied many times over through the adjustable sheives that regulate the RPM of the too - put too much load on it and you have a broken tool or work piece while the motor keeps going.

I once had a bicycle accident where I put too much load on it and ended up with a broken tool. I don't recommend it at all.

Broken tool? That must have been wrenching.

Somehow I just knew the "tool" jokes would be rolling in after that quote...
