    Anyone happen to know where I can get a cheap router? I only need one to route around the subwoofer hole on my sub cabinet so it will be flush!
    I don't need anything fancy. Just something that I can use on my sub cabinet. Probably won't even use it much.

    The cheapest you will find a new one is around $59 at Sears on sale. Otherwise, $64 will be the cheapest. A cheap bit can be found at Home Depot for around $8.00. You pay in the end for cheap bits with time. They will normally require much more sanding. But for one-time use, might be worth the $30 you save.
    These are standard one speed units without dust collection. Of course they are not plunging routers either.
    You might check out the local pawn shops. They usually have tools and you may luck up on a good deal. Might even check out ebay.

    I bought a cheap Skil router and it's actually a plunge unit. I think it was $49 or $59. 1/4" collett of course, but good enough for cutting out my large Tempest sonosub plugs and end caps with a 1/4" carbide spiral upcut bit.
