Answer: 
No, there are 1/4" and 1/2 " shanks. This router has a 1/4" shank so you can only use router bits that have a 1/4" shank.

Answer: 
Not sure which "Key Kit" is suggested. However, any router can use a slot cutter bit and then you cut out slots and use biscuits for gluing boards together. If you have a router, you just need the slot cutter bit(s). If you don't, this one should work well with a slot cutter.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Home Router I'm a home DIY'er and love woodworking. I use this either handheld or in a fixed base. It works fantastic. I could only imagine how well it would perform if I upgraded to some decent bits. August 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great router Used this router to make mortises. The mortises were 1 1/4 inches deep with 1/2 inch wide straight bit. This router handled it like a champ. I would definitely buy another one if needed. It's not very loud and the dust get blown out of the way pretty well. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great item the router is great good fir a lot of jobs and its ideal for any job.the only problem for me was the shipping it could be faster for been shipped inside the use. will recommend to any one wanting to buy one. June 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good solid router at a good price I really like the easy set up of the router and one handed routing. Very comfortable and easy to operate July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little router I own two Milwaukee full sized routers and I find myself going for this dewalt for most of my projects. The led lights shine up the work really well and it powers through everything I've thrown at it. Very easy to use in every way. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Mounted it on the skil ras800 with the plunge base. Works great. Plenty of power. Been using it to make butcher block cutting boards. May 20, 2016
