Rated 4 out of 5 by nice router! I have a skil router I have had for over 35 years. Bought in 1978! I used it a few times a year. I was ready to start spending more time woodworking[just retired] .I decided to give skil a chance, no reason not to. I also bought a circular saw same day as router. [1978] both still run strong. Used saw hundreds of hours. [ will buy another saw when need to ] Bought new router, built router table-cabinet- work station with it.Used both bases . Mounted fixed base on router table. I noticed play in the adjustment screw. I took micro-adjuster apart, put shim in, tightened adjustment screw slop. I am hoping the longevity is there! April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great router for novices I bought this router because I was building a rocking cradle for my daughter's first baby and needed to round all edges to protect the newborn. I was very nervous about using it, but it was a piece of cake - worked exceptionally well and the way it starts at low speed and builds up speed over a couple seconds helped me feel secure in using it. I love it! Great tool! And the cradle looks awesome! April 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Father's Day purchase This was a Father's Day gift. It proved to be great! Dad is a first time user. He always wanted one so ease of use was a must. Dad has been able to use and assemble without problems. It has both fixed and plunge routing so now the only problem is what to work on next!! It even came with a bag to put his set into. The only thing is be careful when opening because the bag is at the top and dad accidentally cut it when cutting the tape on the box to open. Other than that, highly recommend! July 16, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very Suprised! I just submitted a review, not a good one. I had bad luck, must have got a dud! A couple days after writing the review the product manager contacted me. He simply asked for my address and said "I'll just send you a new one"! Sight unseen he sends me a new router, all i had to do was send the old one to him. He wants to look at it and see what happened to it. That kind of customer service is unheard of, he could have just looked the other way, he went out of his way to make sure i got my money's worth. I will use this router for a week or two and then write another review. So far i'll rate the service as "Excellent"!!! August 31, 2013
