Questions & Answers

Is this router suitable for a table mounting? Thanks

Asked by: gmsamp
As to HD 116's answer, I don't know about table mount, but the specs say it is a fixed base router and not a plunge router.

13 Amp Corded 2-1/4 in. Max HP EVS BodyGrip Router is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and powerful A perfect mid size/power combination. Ran smoothly and didn't bog down during two days of pattern routing on a table.
Date published: 2013-02-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built for a serious first time user Position and feel of handles and location of start button are ergonomic. I really like the variable speed power. Simple to adjust height / depth controls. I bought the exact bits I needed, and spent about $20 on each for good ones. Overall my project was a success because of the tool, and Milwaukee came highly recommended.

Both have burned up motors less than a year after warranty. Bosch warranty customer service was terrible to deal with. It’s surprising that this router is not carried in the stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait I ordered this router on line because my local Home Depot does not carry it. I received it in less time then I thought and it was well worth the wait. I use it mostly in my router table and it is very easy to make adjustments with it. It is powerful whether you are a DIY or a Pro. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router Hooked it to a router table. No need for a router lift as this unit comes with a T-handle that allows you to adjust through the table top itself without having to use the adjustment dial on the piece itself. Runs strong and has a smooth start that graduates to top speed in just a few seconds. Nice feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This is my second router and maybe my last. I read all the review on this site before I made my purchase. I have to agree with every single one of them. This router is awesome. I love the way it feels in my hands and it feels very powerful. You can't go wrong with this router.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Died after 6 months A good performing router whilst it worked. Received minimal use over 6 months, routing some architrave door moldings, then after 6 months started sparking and smoking and died so now have to deal with getting it repaired under the warranty. I expected a product of this caliber from Milwaukee to last a lot longer especially since it really hasn't seen a whole lot of use.

It arrived quickly and has Milwaukee's tremendous fit and finish. I'll edit if anything goes awry, but I've never had a problem in 30 years of Milwaukee use so I don't anticipate any problems.
Date published: 2017-05-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I expected I've already used it for making rail and stiles attached to a router table. The only negative is, the wrench supplied would not fit into the hole of the table to raise or lower the router. But it's just as easy to use the control under the table.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a gift to our son who is building a deck. I appreciated the prompt delivery and ease of ordering. I was surprised that the tool was packed in its original carton with no additional packing. The box was torn and caved in a bit on delivery, but the router seemed fine inside. It is a Milwaukee so we are expecting it to be quality.
