Questions & Answers

Can this be adjusted up and down from the top of a Router Table such as the Bench Dog 40-001 cabinet

Can this be adjusted up and down from the top of a Router Table such as the Bench Dog 40-001 cabinet
Asked by: Marc
The only way to change the depth of a vertical cut is by using the depth adjustment ring that surrounds the unit. There is no adjustment option from the top of the router.

Does this unit come with the edge guide shown in one of the pictures?

Asked by: Tom
Mine did not come with the edge guide as show in the picture. FYI - the depth adjustment ring works great and makes it easy to make minor depth adjustments. Hope this helps!

1.75 HP Fixed Base Router is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.

AS mentioned in other reviews here I bought this router and the collets would not screw onto the stem. I returned that one a received a replacement with the same issue. I contacted DeWalt and was shipped a 1/2" collet that fits fairly quickly, but the one I need is the 1/4" and 6 weeks later I am still waiting. I tried online options to service with no satisfaction. I was told today the part is in the mail. The tool may work perfectly well, but the experience means it is not worth it no matter what. I have owned and used many DeWalt tools, but this will be my last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Received at Christmas as a gift from daughter This is my first router and loved using it up until last night. I, was using it, and it got extremely hot while using it on my project. It just quit working all together unfortunately. I thought I would give it until morning, and it still will not work. I am in a dilemma because I received this as a gift for Christmas from our daughter, and I threw away the packaging as well as have no receipt. Is there something that I can do to fix this this on my end?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Third review with the same collet problem Straight out of the box. Screwed on the 1/2 in collet and it will not tighten enough for the bit to be held. I can slide the bit in and out of the collet. I used both wrenches and tightened it as much as humanly possible and NOPE, collet will not tighten around the bit. Tried the 1/4 in collet - Exact same issue. Waited 10 days for this to arrive and now what do I do?? Also, the depth adjustment ring is VERY difficult to turn.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fragile Threading - Broke Immediately. I wished I would’ve read the previous review below. I HAD THE EXACT SAME ISSUE. The bit I wanted to use would not stay in the collet. Attempted to tighten and the threads stripped. Cannot say anything about the tool as I used it for about 2 seconds.
