Where can you find the serial number on this tool? I'm trying to register it and cannot find the serial number for the life of me!!! haha, thanks for any and all help!
Asked by: shamoo
Probably hidden behind the hosing that controls the depth. just unclamp it, push the fine adjustment half-nut down and slide the motor portion of the tool up and you'll see it on the bottom of the tag.

Hey, I need a router for the framing jobsite, I only use it to rout out 1/2 inch osb sheeting on windows doors and gables. I have a 2 part question. Can this router handle the 1/2 inch sheeting easily? How many lineal feet of routing can I do per battery before the motor bogs down? If I don't like it can I return it?
Asked by: Framer
Actually Binford makes the Binford Mark 3 Super Plunge Router, there is no 5000. That is only if you are looking for a substitute item. I believe this will get er done. nicely. Best advice would be to check out the demo.

18-Volt Cordless Brushless 1/4 in. Compact Router with Fixed Base and Tool Free Depth Adjustment is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 234.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this purchase. Of all my shop tools, this... Love this purchase. Of all my shop tools, this one has to be the one I am most appreciative to lose the cord. Allows me to move around cabinets and furniture pieces without having to wrestle them into a new position, never have to keep one eye on the cord possibly tangling and causing detail and safety issues. I don't understand how some reviewers can say it's not good. The only way it would not perform well IMHO is to use it in a manner that it's not intended like trying to plugs too deep, too fast or trying to use a large bit and remove huge amounts of material at a time. It's not a shaper folks...but it certainly is a very capable router. Way better than my Ryobi trimming router and rivals my trusty Porter Cable, just way lighter (which I appreciate!)

Rigids quality, reliability, and lifetime battery replacement is hard to overlook. I am a professional cabinet maker and use this handheld router on a daily basis. Its constantly on the workbench for creating shelf edge details, flush trimming, and lightweight enough to make my own cabinet scribe without having to use the large router table. Since all the batteries are interchangeable, I've been using the new Octane batteries to provide plenty of power. Easy depth adjustment along with quick bit changing capabilities make this router top of the line. Another great product by Rigid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great addition to my shop I bought this a month ago and have definitely put a few hours on it. It has ample power even as a cordless tool. As with any router you need to understand the finesse in how much to cut in a pass and what speed is reasonable. I need to bring my router back in for an issue with the battery. The lock that holds the battery in place leaves 1/4" of play and this is enough for the battery to disengage when you put it down. A simple push of the battery reconnects it, but it shouldn't even be an issue. The on switch is a little awkward to engage, but you get used to it. Overall this tool is the Ridgid quality that I am used to.

The good is that in the hand, they feel very well made, and are quite powerful for the size! In fact, this could be almost a dream tool, usable in almost any situation. The bad is that both have died within the first few uses. The first in fact, almost right out of the box. The second (I got as a gift in a combo pack) was about 10 uses in. Both just stopped working. Now I get to try the pleasure of attempting to get them both serviced. I was able to register the LSA (a bit complicated, but not impossible) but getting service so far seems very confusing. If they worked, they'd be great.

Motor is strong and the router uses all the bits I need for outside work (Decks n railings). Well made and comfortable in the hand..AND IT USES the Bluetooth Large capacity batteries. Limited lifetime warranty and free batteries (HOOPS MUST BE GONE THRU for this). Overall very satisfied with this tool.

Would like to see it with a second led light,but over all it is a good buy for the money. I really like the ease of how you adjust the router depth. I had only had the unit for little less then a month. So far I am very impressed with its operation. This is the first Rigid tool I have owned, but it will not be the last.

Had a bit of trouble figuring out how to turn it on. Pro tip, you have to pull the switch. Still, I figured it out without needing the instructions. The fine tuning of the cut depth is excellent, Visibility is also great.

Nice adjustability, plenty of power for trimming, easy to handle, good visibility (for a trim router), LED light is a nice touch. Power switch would be better as a rocker switch. A dust port option would be really helpful too. Also Ridgid is denying the LSA after I exchanged a defective one.
