Purchased a P-C Router from HD 2 days ago. Model 1001 Type 8. Ask if it would fit my existing Router Table (Ryobi - from HD 2 days ago) was told it would 'fit'. NOT EVEN CLOSE.

does this come with every thing i need, to adjust height, change bits, when mounted on a router table? Is there a router table insert plate available to purchase with this router? (I would like to make a router table) If so, what are specs?
Asked by: skinny
Could be used in some router table applications as is but it is very limited in fine adjustment. If you are building your own table a lift assembly such as Jessum or rockler or other router lift although kind of expensive is a much better and more versatile choice and no need to buy separate plate as it is all one assembly. Do some research on costs and features. Mine works like a dream mounted in a Jessum Masterlift II router lift. It is mostly a matter of personal choice and budget. There are a lot of Just plates out there but you will have to research those as well to find what routers they will fit and what specs are.

2.25 HP Fixed Base Router Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Powerful Router This is my 3rd router and I studied a few routers before purchasing this one about 2 years ago. The depth adjustment is made with an up/down motion which keeps the power cord in the back of the unit. There are 2 power switches one of which is within thumbs reach of the handle. I also like that the dual location power switch extends beyond the top when on. This allows it to be shut off by bumping the switch or placing the router upside down on a flat surface. I've had no problems with the depth adjustments or locking mechanism. As others reported, my collet locking pin broke, but that was due to a personal brain lapse. Luckily this router accepts two wrenches for bit replacement, not all do. I consider the variable speed to be a must when using bits 3/4" & over in diameter. A plunge base can be obtained for this router. My only complaint is the router is a bit heavy making it awkward to use on vertical applications (which is not common, for me). But that's the trade off for the extra power which is nice when routing harder woods and using larger bits.

I would buy it again. One little irritation: the speed control dial is really difficult to turn. Perhaps it will improve with age.

Date published: 2019-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have owned this model for about six months. The router functions well, the soft start feature helps to control the initial tourq, the 1/2 inch collet grips well and the switches are easy to reach and provide tactile feedback. the speed control is easy to use and set. I recieved two 1/4 inch collets in the case and had to return to the store for a 1/2 inch collet. The 1/4 collet slips unless it is very tight. The shaft lock device bent after about a week. I fixed it myself and now use two wrenches to tighten bits in the collet. That is my only gripe, a stonger lock would be great. I have never had an issue with vibration or balance. The router has never bogged down in hard oak I usually work with. I would buy this router again and I would reccomend it to a friend with the caution to go easy on the shaft lock.

I purchased this router to go into my router lift to replace the 1 1/4 HP PC that was in use. since installing it in the router table I have built one project and this unit performed above all expectations. The switch is much improved as it slides up and can easily turn off router rather than fumbling with a rocker type that was hard to operate. Have not used it with the base it came with yet but I do like the adjustment set up to micro adjust wish all had this. I have only had this unit for about a month so can not comment on durability but I have no doubts it will last a long time. As with all PC units I own this one thus far has meet and in some cases exceeded all expectations and have only found one concern not a dislike but the plate is clear and that is a major plus but the center hole is much larger and if I ever want to use freehand with a guide bushing I am ceartain will have to purchase an adapter and I don't really like that as all my guides a designed for the smaller diameter..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful!! Got this router for my 30th birthday and started to work with it right away. I was working on putting up wainscoting in the bedroom and needed to put a groove down the shelf board that set on top. I was using maple and the router ate right through the wood perfectly! This router has variable speeds which is nice and the power buttons are easy to reach while working with it. I also bought a straight edge guide to use with this until I get a router table and it worked great also. The only con with this product is that it's carrying case latch was a little cheap to close the case (kept trying to pop open...)
