Router Choice?

I am living in Far East, whereby, almost all our tools are imported and subject to levy and tax!! My question : at the local retail shop, if i were to choose between a hand router ( as recommended ) or a plunge router for almost similar price, which one should i go for ?

Depends on what kind of projects you do. For most applications I think a hand router is fine.

If I were you, I'd buy one used so you can get the tool cheaply and get hands-on experience and decide what features you like. :)
