Questions & Answers

Which Milwaukee can be used without a table?

Asked by: James
This router along with all Milwaukee routers can be used without a table. This grip style is quite comfortable and is stable to use free-handed. The only Milwaukee router generally designed for table use specifically is the 3-1/2 HP Router (5625-20). But even this one can be used without a router table.

Milwaukee router 5616-21--table application

Will this unit attach to a craftsman alum router table
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Bill, there is no single list of what routers will work with Craftsman router tables. However most fixed base routers will fit the Craftsman aluminum router tables. You may have to adjust the holes. . The Milwaukee router is a great choice for using with a router table. Enjoy.

You can hear the electronic speed control kick in to keep RPMs up under heavy load. It’s a workhorse. The knob and lever are in very convenient positions to adjust while mounted under my kreg table. Highly recommended.

This router has all the power one could ask for in a comfortably manageable package. I bought this one to replace the last of my DeWalt tools.....I am a loyal Milwaukee tool purchaser but I am realistic with my reviews. The adjustments on this router are great when attached my table. The grip sleeve provides a unique amount of control when operating the router. I have made moldings (quarter round, ogee seat molding) on my table and mortised hinges on three retro doors using this router so far and no disappointments. I am pleased with this tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the money The easy start feature and the electronic variable speed make this product well worth the money. The 2-1/4 hp model far exceeded the performance of my 1-1/4 hp router and there are no complaints.
