Hello Lurch, Yes, the plunge router compatible with the DCW600B is model number DNP612.

What is the motor diameter? Thanks in advance.

Asked by TxN February 19, 2021

Answers

The answer from Dewalt expert below stating motor/base diameter of 6" seems to be incorrect. I have a Dewalt DW616 router and it has a 3.5" motor diameter and a 6" base. How can this be called a compact router if it has the same base size?

Is there a way to use international standard 8 mm or replace the 1/4 with a 8 mm collet?

Asked by Namp February 9, 2021

Hello Namp, The model DCW600B uses 1/4" collet and 1/4" shank bits only.

What is the diameter of hole in base?

Asked by Stan January 16, 2021

Answers

It's 1.5 inches. There is room to enlarge it possibly a 1/4 (1/8 each side/all around) before you cut into some of the other holes in the base plate. Easiest to do it on an oscillating spindle sander.

Best trim router ever made!
I bought this back in November 2020 after burning up 2 "Green" cordless routers (the tools my boss buys) and let me just say everything about this router is perfect. The ergonomics are just perfect where your hands just fall into place on the tool and button placement/adjustments are super easy love the way the depth is adjusted. Power is hands down amazing it last quite a while on 6ah batteries and just EATS through material like a corded router. Im a professional trim carpenter so I use it quite a bit for pretty much every task and I haven't ran into something it cant handle yet. 10/10 Dewalt nailed this one! The only tiny issue I can think of that would turn people away is its a tad expensive but trust me, totally worth it!

Be careful when purchasing this battery. I purchased with the Dewalt DCD791P1 (Brushless XR 20v drill/driver). This battery was listed on HD's site as option. The battery has the same model number as the battery that came with the drill, but did not seat properly on the charger and lock in place. The pin design on this battery was different than the battery that came with the drill. It would not charge at all because the design differences. Date codes on both drill battery and this battery were both 2020. The drill battery has a set of 6 independent slots for the pins in the middle (picture). The battery that HD had for this one has 5 taller slots like the 2 outer ones in my picture. Another indicator is the black piece in the grooved area. Battery supplied with drill is as shown, but the battery I received was all yellow.

I purchased this router so I could have two routers with different setups for production. I like not having a cord to mess with. The router has plenty of power and when coupled with the newer compact 3AH batteries, it is excellent.

Oh wow. I made some shutters for the house and at first, I got the Ryobi jigsaw as I had some batteries for my outside tools. It was unacceptable (see pics). It didn't feel right in the hand and the blade guide was more like a suggestion for the saw. This is a great "precision" cutting device for certain applications. This tool was part of my decision to move to the DeWalt platform along with an excellent sale price with battery. I highly recommend although there are two more jigsaw options that I understand are as good including a barrel grip and the "brushed" older version that is well loved. This is a high quality tool. Don't hesitate to buy.

Love sums it up
I am a professional carpenter and home builder. I use my tools on a daily basis for a variety of tasks! Let me tell you this router may be compact/small, but it packs a punch. Literally no job I throw at it does it have a problem! I use this for when I am doing edge profiles on ripped wood for decks, trim etc. Depending on the job it has great battery life with a 5ah.. when I am recessing wood mantels I tend to go through two batteries.. but heck I am putting in alot of work with it..

This is a compact powerful router, be sure you have the higher ampere hour batteries or several smaller batteries. This router is easy to use and handle, I used it to route a 52' x 40' trayed ceiling with 4' x 4' sections. All the work was overhead with one arm, this router did it all with ease.
