Customer Questions & Answers

Is this compact router strong enough to cut dados and rabbets in cedar?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.

I've used mine in walnut, oak, cherry etc. without any issues.

I already own the compact router. Can I buy the plunge base seperately?

Asked by: Squeejay
Should be able to. I purchased the plunge base separately a larger router and am still waiting for the router to come in.

Are all router bit shanks the same

Looking to buy a router soon
Asked by: nick
comes with 1/4 shank but should be able to change out to a 1/2, not sure though. By the sound of this 1 1/4 hp motor I think it can only handle the work of a 1/4 shank. Anything larger might burn it up.

DEWALT routers top notch I have looked at the Bosch very closely but went with this brand . We building our new home and all workers have Dewalt tools on the job side , I think it is very good tip for me , and maybe for you to, I'm glad I went with this router and this company.

I had been using a 3.5 HP plunge router. However, the big router is heavy and cumbersome. The Dewalt router is lighter, is easy to adjust the depth of cuts. This is an all around tool allowing me to create more projects. I also discovered that I don't always need the plunge base, and the versatility is a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Wanted This tool is easy to control and maneuver. Easy to switch from one base to the other. It is the perfect size which also makes it easy to use. Designed so that you can monitor your work and make sure you maintain smooth edges. Great quality!

I use this on my CNC router were I'm sure they get more use than the typical router. This was purchased as a backup to the one that is currently running on my router that has been running about 5 hours a day 6-7 days a week without issue.

Used it on hardwood that was the full thickness of the bit. While I won't do that as a regular thing (and wouldn't advise it either), it handled the job. I expect to have a lot of fun with this....

Lightweight, led light, and soft- start. So far I haven't found anything negative with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kick A@! Little router. I've been using this compact router on hardwood(maple, walnut, oak), and it hasn't missed a beat. Great design, great performance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small routing necessity.. The plunge mechanism is smooth. The lever for plunging is sensitive so the lever must be fully engaged. The fixed base has a square plexiglass base supporting fence type routing. Given the 1.25 hp capability I don't believe the variable speed control is necessary given the 1/4" collect. Fit and finish is typical for DeWalt..which is excellent. Some reviewers opt for the 1 hp Bosch for hand routing because the body is ergonomically designed for hand routing. For myself, I would rather have the additional hp I can deal with the fixed for hand trimming. Both brands however, are fine.
