CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dado Work I bought this so I could have 2 routers setup to do Thru Dados. The plunger adapter will not clamp tight onto motor and the standard adapter will never center on adapter ring when you raise it up to do dados. The plunge adapter will creep up and centering will be off. No matter how tight I tighten the clamp it moves. February 21, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to asseble, good power for the job. For the amount of money is a good buy, but the dust collector attachment and the guide for strait cuts are not include it. Had difficulties with small 1/4" inch collar getting stock to the tool February 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use, great addition to home shop Received this for my birthday and used for the first time this weekend (1/24 and 1/25/15). Never had a router before and after reading the manual and reviewing some "how to" and safety videos, inserted a bit, adjusted the depth and practiced quite a while on scrap. Then I got brave and rounded the edge on some red oak to make a small side table. Excellent results! January 26, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice router! I bought this as a gift to myself after Christmas. I am extremely pleased with my purchase. This router has the soft start which works amazingly well. The first time I turned it on I noticed that it didn't torque in my hands like my old router does. I like the fact that it has a couple of LED lights on the bottom which helps let you see where you are cutting and also lets you know that there is power still going to it, sort of a safety device to let you know to unplug it before you change bits. It is very easy to change from a fixed base to the plunge base, but the thing that I don't like is the fine adjusting knob. I have the fixed base mounted in my router table and with a flip of the lever and a quick twist, its out of the fixed and into the plunge base. It would be worth five stars if the knob was larger at the top and not tapered because you have a difficult time grasping the knob and trying to turn it without your fingers slipping up and off making it hard to fine adjust it. Also, the knob has a hexagonal hole in the top of it, but unfortunately it must be metric because none of my Allen wrenches fit it, which would be a plus, thus four stars, because you would certainly be able to use it much easier under the table adjustment using an Allen T-wrench. It certainly has enough power to do most everything you need to do. I haven't tried any of the very large cabinet router bits, but they should work just fine if you make multiple shallow cuts. For an intermediate router it is built well, not very heavy, and handles comfortably and has variable speed control, Wow. The plunge base is a little stiff but should loosen up in time. A very nice router that comes also with a 1/4" adapter to convert from 1/2", a real plus in my opinion. For the price I definitely would recommend this to a friend and have. It comes with a very nice sturdy carrying tool bag that is plenty roomy for both bases and other tools or accessories as well. I think this has been a good purchase on my part. February 1, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by The combo idea is great, but in practice the router difficult to use The combo idea is great, but in practice the router difficult to use. With the fixed base, you cannot easily adjust the height of the router bits. You have to unlock the housing first, adjust the depth, then lock the housing. It is tedious. I wanted to get the Skil router table for it, but decided not to because it seems like I have to remove the whole router from the table every time I need to adjust the bit depth. The router's features are nice, but operationally it is disappointing. April 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable to operate I bought this to make Christmas presents while it was on sale what a great router recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great router at a very affordable price December 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VALUE FOR MONEY A REPLACEMENT FOR A PREVIOUS MODEL, SAME BRAND, SAME H.P. ALTHOUGH NOT FOR CONTINUOUS USE, APART FROM HEAVY VIBRATION ERGONOMICALLY GOOD TO USE. December 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Router But............. I really like the router but using it with the Skil router table the adjustments are hard. You have to unclamp the router base to adjust it and it fall about 1/2" then when you tighten the clamp back the blade is to high. But I do like it as a hand held and I like the plunge. I just wish Skil would make one you could adjust from top of the router table. November 17, 2014
