6.5 Amp 1-1/4 HP Corded Plunge Base Variable Speed Compact Router Kit With Collet, Base, Straight Guide, (2) Wrenches is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 73.

The kit gets 4 stars only because the plunge base requires an adapter in order to use an inlay kit, but the standard base does not. This seemed backwards to me. I had to purchase a $28 adapter.

The package with both bases is a very useful. My older Ridgid mini router works well, but it is not as easy to adjust or change bits. I have also bought the dust collection chutes for both bases, and they’re great additions.

I bought it for a guitar building project I had just started and I was able to use it for a good bit of everything I did in the project. It worked smoothly and was easy to understand. I would definitely buy it again!

I really like the size of the router, light weight and not big and bulky like a lot of them. For what I use the router for I don’t need a big, heavy router. I highly recomend this Mikita router.

The router has ample power and is fairly quiet. The only negatives I can see are the lack of a led light and an edge guide for the plunge base which is an expensive option.

Fits my hand perfect and with the Plunge base I may not have to use my large Plunge Router ever again. Dust collection is excellent when used in conjunction with my Dust Deputy. Overall very satisfied with my selection.

It is great for small projects as well as jobs depending om the scale and how you use the tool. Constant use seems to either stop the motor at times. With proper use the router is a really great tool.
