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.

1.25 HP Compact Router with Plunge Base and Bag is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm glad I purchased this router This router works perfect , I'm not professional , but work and final product look like professional job , The first think I have purchased 4 Diablo bits , costs us much as router it self, you have to have good bits , don't look at cost look what you can do with it , router so easy to manage for beginner like me , light big plus for old eyes like myself , router have easy start , bit changing very easy . 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.

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.

Not suited for heavier duty application such as used for 5/8 materials, e.g. high density particle board, oak, baltic birch, etc. Sales information gives you the impression that it is used for shop type environment but is more suited to the hobbyist for very light duty. After testing the Dewalt vs the Porter Cable I would prefer the Dewalt. Sounds stronger.

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 Quality Product I have 3 other trim routers. I added this DeWalt model recently. It large enough to handle good sized jobs, but small enough to make it very convenient to grab and use when you don't want to get out you full size router - without compromising performance. These qualities together with an amazing price make this a great deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

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.
