Customer Questions & Answers

can this router be mounted in a router table

If I mount this to a router table, can the base be locked in place and not used the plunging feature?
Asked by: cutgirl
Thank you for your question. Yes the 1827 router can be mounted to a router table and the base can be locked however we would recommend using a fixed base router in a router table. We do have a combo kit model 1830 that comes with both a fixed base and the plunge base:

What is the benefit of a plunge router over a fixed base router?

I am looking at buying my first router and do not know if I should buy a plunge router or not. Any guidance?
Asked by: RBDJ
Thank you for your question. If you plan to use a router table a fixed base router would be best. If you are planning to use the router by hand then we would recommend a plunge base. We also offer a combo set Skil model 1830 that comes with both the fixed and plunge base then you can leave the fixed base installed in a router table and just remove the motor to use the plunge base for hand routing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product ever I had to return this router within 30 days because the plunger stopped working properly. I exchanged it for a new one and had the same problem within a couple of weeks, This product is worthless. DO NOT BUY. I am a weekend hobbyist and was using this product very little, not overworked by any means. Thanks to Home Depot the credited my money back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed When I tried to use this router the depths varied. The base would wobble even if the lock was tight.
