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 115.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a well made, solid, semi-compact machine. I love... This is a well made, solid, semi-compact machine. I love the versatility of the plunge base vs. the standard one. I do prefer a D handle base over one with knobs on the sides, but just the same, this is a good machine. The plunge base operates very smoothly, unlike the herky-jerky bases of other plunge routers. The one major drawback, is the tiny power switch. It needs to be larger, as you usually have to fiddle with it to get it to operate. It has a dust cover on it (a good thing) but is far too small, especially if you need to turn it off in a hurry. I would have given it five stars except for this one important thing.

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.

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

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great handling plunge router combo Read the instructions twice then proceeded to perform a general set up using both the stand alone router and as a plunge router. Highly recommend that you do a trial set setup prior to use. Also try set up on a scrap piece to insure correct operation. Greatly satisfied with all functions once I understood set up.

This is the first router I've used but it was easy to set up and use. I've only used it for one job so I can't speak about long term reliability but so far I've got zero complaints. Also, I haven't yet used the plunge attachment.

I would recommend buying this measuring tool along with any router and set up becomes simple rather than frustrating. iGaging 35-0906 - 6" Digital Router Depth Gauge with 3 in 1 Height, Depth and Angle Gauge.
