Hi Bill,

Of the four Porter Cable models i had to choose from, none had the handgrip
switch.  I like that, as it makes you keep your hands securely on the router
and not fumbling for a switch.  That's why I went with the DeWalt.  If I get
a router table I would definatly go with the $350 Porter Cable.
