Answer: 
This router takes any 1/4 inch shank bits. Even though it is a very powerful router, watch how big of a bit you use due to control. It will start eating out a lot of material if you let it get away from you.

Any 1/4" shank router bit, up to a certain diameter, will work on this router. This router is too small and underpowered for the really big router bits. Those big bits should only be used with table mounted routers anyway.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 186 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little tool. My big router is going to collect dust... Whether you buy this router or another brand, get one of these little routers. Definitely not just for trimming laminate. Full fledged router that fits in the palm of your hand. I mostly use 1/4" bits with pilot bearing to put round-over or 45 deg on edge of board. Or shallow cuts for hinges. This little router does all that and SO much easier than balancing a heavy router, tipping and gouging the edge of your work. I chose the Rigid for the LED light, clear base plate, wide visibility and quick adjust. I almost passed because of the switch location, but having used it for 1 week, now I really like it. The switch is on top and up/down (vs. a thumb rocker) so you can easily whack the top with your hand, your hip, or whatever to turn it off. Again...don't know why I didn't buy one of these sooner. My bigger router is going to collect more dust than it's going to make. Great little unit and a full fledged power tool. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Same probleam as others with base I purchased one of these trim routers to trim some cabinets. I also bought the Ryobi 4 piece round over bit set. I found that only the smallest bit fit through the round baseplate that was attached. So, I extended the base plate as far as i could go, put in the larger bit and then used the micro control for depth to slowly bring the base plate into the bit. The base is acrylic, and the router had no problem slowly going through and enlarging the hole. Looks like factory opening and I think the factory that is making these must have the dimensions of the base hole off just a tad bit. May 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product. Good price Worked very well. will be a good addition to the workshop. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First palm Router I bought this router for a pantograph because of the weight and so far so good. It seems to work great for this application. I made the pantograph and it seems to be working out good. I bought this brand because of the locality and I intend to switch to this brand for all my needs due to the excellent lifetime warranty. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT - ENLARGED THE BASE TO FIT MY 3/8 ROUND BIT. I have used a big Craftsman for a long time. I just need a router for small DIY pine projects. This is perfect, easy to handle and see your work. I bought a Ryobi bit package. HOWEVER only the smaller 1/4 round bit will fit through the plastic plates. I need the 3/8 round for most of my speaker box projects. So I enlarged the hole in one of the plates so the 3/8 bit will fit through the hole now. Super. April 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased with the quality of the tool. feels real good in your hand esy to control Good product easy to opertate.I was using it to trip laminate counter top edges, made the job i was doing very easy. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality tool used in woodworking production This router is used daily in a professional woodworking environment. It is rated at 1 1/2 hp and has no problem hogging material up to 5/16 inch deep cuts in one pass April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool for the right price. Needed a low cost compact router for a few projects and got this on sale. It works great and now I can expand my project capability. Great product, warranty, price and customer service was on point. May 11, 2016
