Stupid Job!

Sometimes my job is so silly. I work as a project manager for a horizontal drilling contractor. Our work is mostly seasonal and it's not unusual during the slow times for the phone to only ring once every three or four days. I, having a salary position, am required to show up whether there's something to do or not. Today there's nothing to do, so I'm just sitting here drinking coffee.

This weekend I bought a larger router to use almost solely in my router table. I unpackaged it this morning and I'm fiddling with it on my desk. Here's another crappy cell phone pic:

I've read several good reviews about these Triton routers. My first impression was how thoroughly they designed the dust collection. While the shielding would obscure the view of the bit if you were running it manually, for a router table application it looks like it'll kick ass. No above-table height adjustment though, which is unfortunate.
