Questions & Answers

Can I use a 1/2 in bit with this router

Asked by: Jami
Unfortunately, no. 1/4" is all it will handle in order to keep it light weight and easy to operate with one hand.

Can you hook up a vacuum to it
Asked by: Papa
To the best of my knowledge, it does not come with a vacuum adaptor, however, you may be able to cut a hole to the size of your hose and adapt to fit.

what are the dimensions of the router

what are the dimensions of the router
Asked by: Pete
Pete, Sorry for the long delay in getting your question answered. The plexi base plate is 4 inches wide an gives plenty of balance and stability for every cut I use it for. The circumference is 10 inches and even though my hands are not large it is very easy to hold and control. The variable speed feature is great when edging thin product and the unit has enough power to rabbit channels in oak, cherry and maple (the species I use). Plywood and melamine are extremely easy. When I bought this router I tried the Diablo bits and was very impressed. I think you will have fun with this new tool. Best of luck.

7-Amp Corded 1-1/4 HP Max Torque Variable Speed Compact Router with LEDs is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 127.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from During first use within twenty minutes, it became difficult to... During first use within twenty minutes, it became difficult to move/adjust the cutter depth with the rotating adjustment ring. The inner and outer 'halves' of the router would become stuck and the plastic adjustment ring would pop over the grooves which wore the inner plastic down some. With some force while pushing on the router to separate the halves, I found one side of the inner router half to be scored/galled down the side. When the router heated up, this aluminum body part expands into the outer half and the two halves stick together, preventing smooth depth adjustment. Wiped it clean (note that NO material I was working with had gotten into this area), but no improvement in function. Used it a little longer, but the depth adjustment apparently cannot be securely locked down. Will be returning this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Palm Router I purchased my DeWalt Palm Router a little over a month ago with a flush trim bit and a 1/4" straight bit. It is being used to help create an NCO Induction Archway for my Army Reserve unit. If I had not purchased this tool, I would still be hand sawing the paneling. I think it is a great tool to own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very user friendly Very good product except for the plastic sub-base. Make sure you buy extras because I cannot find a metal one to fit this product. Used mine for 10 minutes and the plastic sub-base broke. Manufacturer surely can do better than this cheap plastic on a great product.

Purchased this item for exclusive use as a milling router for completion of my AR-15 80% Lower Receivers. Used with the 5D Tactical Pro Jig for completing lower receivers, it is an absolute blessing to have and extremely easy to use. This is the 5D Tactical's choice of router and after milling 2 80%er's, I can see why! I do some amateur woodwork and this router is more that adept to make your work look professional. Trust me, I need all the help I could get in that area. Extremely easy to use and fantastic size and handling. Well worth the pricing and portability. This is a product I wold not hesitate to purchase again if the need arises.

Got to the end of January and it died. I changed the brushes hoping for an easy fix but no go. Took it into my local service center for warranty work and they still have it. They keep telling me that the parts are on backorder. Not sure if I'll ever get it back at this point. Just a word of warning to anyone thinking of purchasing this router. Great when it works, but if you have to have it serviced you might as well just buy a new one, because you will anyway if you want to get any work done. Very disappointed and will probably be my last DeWalt purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have yet to use this DEWALT DWP611 router, but... I have yet to use this DEWALT DWP611 router, but it came highly recommended as the router of choice by others. Using a part specific jig and bits, this router will be used to mill out 80% AR lower receivers. The router itself looks to be well built and heavy duty...In addition rebuild parts are available if the brushes or bearings wear out over time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful I have used this tool in the past and now I have my own, I love the power it has and ease of use as it is light weight and small enough to handle without feeling awkward. My only concern is how hot the base and cutter gets in use. So hot I have to stop production. Now I'm not sure if it's just because it's brand new and running at its optimum potential and the carbon brushes are somehow making the tool run faster which is heating it up so much, but it gets so hot I am worried it could damage the cutters. Eliminating the hardness of the cutters. If the tool did not heat up the way it does, I would not have a bad thing to say about it whatsoever it's a great machine and one I would recommend - assuming the tool will cool over a short amount of time... I gave 4 starts on value and quality only because of the tool heating to a degree where I can't handle the tool until it cools, which could ultimately hurt the cutters that also become super hot, too hot to touch. I have to immediately put them in oil. I do truely love this product. And would recommend it to others. The over heating may just be a problem with this one machine.

( The only down side is I had to hirer a armed guard to watch my tool box so it didn't get borrowed! )
