Rated 1 out of 5 by Realy Bad I bought this router in a 3 base kit and returned it one week later. The power of the router is very low and struggles to make cuts in hard wood and because the motor housing is made of plastic as the motor warms up fine adjustment is almost impossible to make. Also the lack of a 1/2in collet restricts the amount of bits that can be used with this system. If you can afford to get a router with a metal body and base then do it, you may spend a little more money but it is well worth it in the long run and far less frustrating. In my opinion Porter cable and Dewalt make the best routers you can buy. March 17, 2007

Rated 4 out of 5 by Recommend for the DIY'er This is a great little router for the DIY'er. I've used this router against 1" hardwood as well as 3/4" plywood with minimal RPM reduction under full load. February 27, 2007
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great router for beginners and DIYer's Got this router for father's day last year, and it is a good little router. If I were doing production work, I would get something with an alloy motor body and more HP but this router does a great job at what it is designed for. Last month I made some furniture for my 2 year old son and so I made a template to trim the parts to their final size using a template cutting bit and it was a snap. Then I used a round over bit on the edges. I even used a 3/4" bit to cut dadoes and this router took care of the job with no problems. Yeah the motor body got a little warm, but that was after 30 min. of routing. It can only use 1/4" shank bits, but if your bit is sharp it will produce clean cuts, so I wouldn't shy away because of this. Oh and there are plenty of bits out there for this router, I have 27:) I would say the only cons are it is a lightweight so I would not put it in a table to make door panels, and the depth adjustment knob sticks a little when dropping your bit down to trim edges.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Every purchase is the best I have ever had..... I ordered this for a Christmas gift, so I won't have any answers before then. Sorry, but that's all I can say about it at this time!!! October 28, 2014
