Rated 4 out of 5Â by OnewithRyobi Keep fresh batteries around when using
This tool is an especially useful router, but keep fresh batteries on hand as the blade will start chipping your work with lower RPMs. For laminate, works like a charm. Oh, and wear hearing protection and the neighbor may want some too.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by John4242 Great tool, use it all the time
It is listed as a trimmer, but don't be fooled, I use it as a portable router..
I've bought 1/4 inch router bits, and Everything I make now has a different edge on it...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sarge great for door hinges
I picked up this little guy about 5 years ago to speed up door hinge preparation. I figured it would be quicker than using a chisel, but I had very low expectations. Was I ever wrong. I, and several co workers have routed hundreds of door hinges, and several laminate garden window sills over the last 5 years with absolutely no problems whatsoever. I even used a plunge bit to router out a piece of 3/4 inch plywood for the battery tray on my pontoon boat. My advice to anyone considering it is this....be patient and take your time, use the lithium batteries, and spend the money on quality bits. I personally use Diablo and have had no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by renovationist perfect little router
This is my second one. The first one lasted ten years with almost daily use, so I cannot complain about the life span at all. What other tool can you buy for around $50 that will last ten solid years? Has plenty of power with a fully charged battery, bits are easy to change, and it fits my hand perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chick Top notch tool with the obvious limitations of chuck size.
This tool is light weight and easily handled. Power seems adequate and the cordless feature is very handy. The jury is still out on the plastic depth adjustment and its durability over time. As intended, the router works best with bearing bits and lithium batteries.
Recommendations For improvement:
1. Metal continuously variable depth adjustment, perhaps using gears and knob.
2. Smaller base so as to make work on thinner strips possible without a jig.
3. Edge guide attachment to fit the two holes.
