    I'm sure this is quite short sighted, but I don't see me needing to run any huge bits anytime soon. But, if the need arose in the future would it not be possible, to raise the router quite high, so...

    I bought the punches, and frankly I'm disappointed with the results. As I was warned here by Steve and others, they are quite variable, and just don't look that good - either crooked, or...
