I started a similar thread over on SFI but as I value opinions of members here I have posted the thread on this blog.

 

I use "routed" but have seen the other term used by some on various forums and retailers newsletters.

 

What do you think?

Looks like either way.(in the first 3 examples below).

 

https://www.etsy.com.../routered_signs

 

Around here, when guys have non-snap together tracks, in their garage or basement, they are referred to as a "routed home track".

 

I classify it as "not important".(which way you say it)

I would use 'routed' and I think it is a real word, whereas 'routered' appears to be someone's creation, that doesn't appear in mainstream dictionaries.

 

But, looks like someone has posted a definition of 'routered' here
"routered
Verb

    simple past tense and past participle of router

English Wiktionary. Available under CC-BY-SA license."

 

So maybe in time it will become an 'official' word??

:huh:

I agree.

 

No one has ever asked me, if it was easy or hard, to router my track.

 

Router isn't even listed as anything, other than a noun, below;

Routered is the proper way to pronounce it in the south. Just ask Cheater.  :laugh2:

Routered: you done did it with a router.

 

Routed: they sent you by that route.

Sure it is; as in, "I was workin' on buildin' a track in my garage, when my know-it-all neighbor came over to tell me I was doin' it all wrong.  He wouldn't shut up, so I routered him upside the head with my Dewalt."  :laugh2:
