Funny you should ask that, Leo. I was actually thinking about removing the line lasers for just that reason – you can get perfect aiming by turning the laser on low. I also think it looks cool, but it’s certainly less wiring and stuff to worry about.
Hanging the laser and other tools off of the router and leaving the router in place is certainly a viable solution. It was what I was considering along with the universal, but when this one came out I decided to give it a try. I haven’t tried actually using my router with it yet. I have dust collection too, but I’ve already incorporated it into my universal setup.
