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.
Asked by: slipsiu
I've used mine in walnut, oak, cherry etc. without any issues.

Is the "Soft Sided Bag" that is included actually a carrying case?

Asked by: Jimmy
Yes.

Does ths router come with a DeWalt bag or soft case?

Other sites have this same router (even the same part number) but do not say a case is included. I just wanted to make sure the case comes with the router from Home Depot. Thanks, Jim
Asked by: Jim
Yes, it comes with a bag, which is the same thing as a soft case to me.

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.

1.25 HP Compact Router with Plunge Base and Bag is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 108.

It's hard for me to give a Dewalt product a mediocre review, but due to the lack of compatibility with router table options and lack of power, it gets 3 stars. It's a great router for a hobbyist that doesn't plan on mounting it to a table (because no table is compatible with the face plate for mounting). You will need a 1.75+ HP router (DW616PK or DW618PK) or greater in order to have compatibility with router table setups. Overall, the product is good, but it doesn't stack up for anyone serious about woodworking.

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....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lights on but nobody's home Its a great router, feels good in the hand, easy to use however I give it low stars since mine died after less than 5 hours of use. To the guy up there who said he was having a trouble with his projects burning, its probably because you're running your RPM's too high. That was the case for me as well, I kept mine around 5 and burnt out the brushes. Now I have an expensive flashlight which I plan to return. After doing some research I found others with the same problem. It should be left at 1, or maximum 3. The higher the speed you run the quicker you will burn out the brushes. I am now convinced Brushless is the future.

However, I wanted a small "trim" router for doing hinge mortises and small wood projects. This little guy is perfect! it handled a couple of hinges with ease and did some round overs on Cherry without ever skipping a beat! On top of that, this router is not as noisy as a full size router and it is easily used with one hand. The plunge base works really well and I had no issues what so ever. nice and smooth yet rigid as needed (locks into place with a release of the thumb control.) Disclaimer: I am a really big Dewalt tool (corded) fan. God bless!

I have not yet used the plunge accessory but the router itself appears to have good power for a compact size. I have been using it for precise trim cuts on 3/4 in. plywood. My only negative observations are that I prefer a base that is round instead of having a flat side when I am making large round holes and I found the visibility of the bit to be a little more restricted than my larger Craftsman router, especially from some viewing angles. The soft start could be a little "softer" since there is still more perceived torque than I expected. Overall, though a nice compact router

It is the right size for most jobs, although I have a larger router for heavy work. I use this for light routing and laminate work. It is very smooth and I love the soft start. The base is solid and the extended base with a straight edge is a great idea. It helps keep the router flat while trimming along an edge. The plunge base is smooth and well designed. My only wish is that they made a tilt base for it for some laminate work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not enough speed. Bought this because I needed a corded compact router. It was also a plus because it included a plunge base. However I ended up returning it because it was not enough power. First time I used it I was burning the wood with my brand new bits. It was also hard to see and route patterns when using the fixed base. I ended up getting the Ridgid R24012. It seems to be more compact and easier to handle compared to the Dewalt

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic router I've used this router for a few weeks now and the jig I'm using it in is for cutting aluminum... no issues, runs extremely smooth and adjustability is as simple as can be. Next time this particular router goes back on sale I will be purchasing another. Great product. Doesn't get hot, plenty of power and thoroughly satisfied. The adapter was just a good bonus for the what if I need it situation.
