Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: TimBo
This is a universal brushed motor, so a VFD (variable frequency drive) wont work - changing the power frequency (even to zero, aka DC) will have minimal effect. Since it has an onboard speed control an external one may cause the internal control to overheat and/or fail.

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.

On ridgid router, what kind of bushing it can fit beside ridgid bushing brand? Any suggestions?

Asked by: Joey
lee valley sells a brass bushing set that will fit. I believe that the frued set available at home depot will also work, but haven't tried it.

Customer Reviews

2 HP 1/2 in. Corded Fixed Base Router is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 58.
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 3 out of 5 by from No Plunge Base Available (at this time) Received this router as a birthday gift. It looked and felt like a quality tool and I was excited to use it. However, when I looked up to see how much the plunge base cost, I could not find one. They made one in the past for a slightly different model, but not for this router R22002 (at the time of this review). So I ended up returning this one and going with a different brand that offers a combination fixed/plunge base package.

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.

Haven't had a router for ten years, replaced with this one and what a pleasant surprise. Love this router... quiet, smooth, adjustable speed, easy to handle ergonomics. Used it to build a pair of solid red oak barn doors, router didn't even breathe hard. Started with rough red oak and used this to round edges/corners and route out tongue and groove for 8 foot red oak boards. Great router, especially like the warranty.

I'm using it on a swap saw and the holes line up to those on the Plexiglas. It's easy to adjust. the depth of cut. I'm using it with the Home Depot bucket vac and that works ok. I'm still messing with that as there is a vac attachment on both the router and the swap saw. But the router works well. It went through a tremendous knot in the wood with no problem as well.

I've sold all my Porter Cable,Dewalt,Bostitch,etc. tools and replaced them with Ridgid. This router is top notch. Gets the job done cleanly and easily. Comes with storage bag.
