Customer Questions & Answers

Does this router have LED?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Wintergreen
It does. But they go on when the router is running, which, if it's table-mounted like mine the lights are useless. Also, table or no, I think they're a near meaningless feature unless you work in the dark.

2 wrenches?

does it take 2 wrenches to change bits?
Asked by: Tom
One wrench and a button to keep pressed in. Easier to just insert a Phillips screwdriver in the collet hole to anchor it instead and have two hands free, one for the wrench and the other just to hang out and not get in the way of a small router access opening.

Can an external speed control be used as in a router table?

Asked by: TimBo
No, it has a built in speed control. An outside speed control can't be used because this router Comes with a soft start.

Perfectly fine router when it was new, but unfortunately it has a fatal flaw. The router body corrodes badly because it is aluminum and the base is magnesium, see picture. After less than a year the height adjustment screw barely turns.

The issue was resolved by my loval store as the corporate 'online' call center refused to do anything about the issue.

It replaces an older Ryobi and a Makita which were both stolen. This router appears to be manufactured by whomever manufactures Ryobi. If this is the case, it should be made known. If someone wants a Ryobi router, then they would buy a Ryobi router. Ridgid also does not provide any attachments for this like an edge guide. So i am left to buying someone else's edge guide, like Ryobi for example. The router does work as intended, i am just not a Ryobi fan as i have never had good luck with their tools years ago. Just seems a little deceptive, as everything i have read thus far, points to this being a re-branded Ryobi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Correcting incorrect reviews. OK, every one has their own opinion, But, one reviewer states that changing bits while in the base is impossible. Really ? I have no problem at all. Actually easier than the Porter Cable I had before. Did he read the instructions? And the hight adjustment, again, way better than P.C. Another review stated spare parts (collets) can't be found. So just for the heck of it I looked for 1/4 adapter collets, and had two ordered in ten minutes, to be shipped in two days. Just saying. I have no affiliation with Ridgid, but this is a great router, and I wish I hadn't wasted my money and time on the Porter Cable which turned out to be an over rated piece of trash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much more powerful than my prior router. And the large insert "key" for adjusting the bit height ... Much more powerful than my prior router. And the large insert "key" for adjusting the bit height is terrific for a table router, which I exclusively use. What I don't like is the spindle lock, which requires that an awkward button be held in to anchor the collet and allow you to tighten the nut which holds the bit. In my case the small cylinder which is to fit into a hole in the collet and prevent movement hits 1/8" below it and won't go in. Moreover, even if it worked, there's so little room for the tightening wrench that it's quite hard (for me anyway) to get the wrench properly seated and functioning. And keeping the button pressed the entire time (I pretended that the small cylindrical insert actually worked) became tiring. Now a simple fix: 1. Place the router and its insert mounting plate on the tabletop. 2. Turn the collet until you see the hole. 3. Slip the end of a Phillips screwdriver into the hole, which will prevent collet movement while, with no more button-pressing and, thus, a hand out of the way, it's much simpler to tighten the nut in a constricted space. Also, the Phillips holds itself in until you remove it. 4. With the nut appropriately tightened and the bit snugly in, remove the screwdriver and you're ready to go. Bit removal works the same way. The rest of the router seems nicely engineered and is certainly well priced.
