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.

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

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.

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.

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....

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Drawer I received the router kit in a timely manner and it was in excellent condition. I have only used the router a couple of times since I made the purchase, but found the unit easy to handle in both cases because of it's weight, size, and power. I used it for trimming some 3/4 in plywood and also tried blind dove tails and it handled them with ease. I normally use a 2 or 2 1/4 hp router for this type of work but the bigger routers are much heavier and more difficult to control. This is really a great tool for woodworking, and I will no doubt use it for most if not all of my hand-held router work in the future.
