          Registration is a joke
          Not a bad tool so far, too bad they make it impossible to register, just a circle of login to register, we’re sending you confirmation to email, click here to login. Then repeat, this happened when I tried to register cordless combo kit 10 years ago then when you try to make a claim good luck.done with ridgid done with HD

            Great tool!
            I love this router! I was deciding between this model with a light or one without. I’m so glad I picked this one. It really helped when making precise cuts in an inlay. It’s got good power and is easy to maneuver deep cuts. Would totally recommend!

              This product was great. I've used a couple of times since purchase and I love it with just one minor issue. The wrench provided to tighten the collet won't fit into the space provided on the router. Such a simple thing to get right and they didn't. That costs them 1 star on my rating. Otherwise, I love this tool and am completely satisfied.

              Very Nice Router
              Purchased this to replace an older Bosch unit..I like the variable speed . The on/off switch above the power cord will take a little getting used to. As with my Bosch changing bits requires the removal of the motor from the base , most of the time. Overall it handles well, the two base plates are nice to have, and it cuts well. A great palm router at a reasonable price

                Great for finish work
                I love this router, it's great for taking a project to the next level. I use mine alot to finish off some cnc work. Basically the 1/4" round over bit almost never leaves the chuck. But I have alot used it for flush cutting laminate, and even countersinking hinges into new door jams. Its a one handed tool, so the other hand is left free to brace material or move clamps. The build in LED is great for tight spaces. This thing is a must for finish work.

                  For a small hand held router it has plenty of power. My niece used it to make a sign out of some re-purposed redwood. She had never used a router before and it came out great. The size made it easy to control and easy to get into tight spaces.

                  Very easy to use. I have a larger Bosch router that I love, but it requires two hands to operate. This worked great for some cabinet doors that I was making for a window seat. The customer wanted some extra detail on the doors. Lite enough and powerful. Quick and easy to change out router bit. Can't go wrong with ridgid. Great tool at a great price.

                  I have a regular size Porter Cable router and a Dremel but nothing that quick and easy work. I didn't have a lot of experience with routing but needed to route some flush edges on a workbench I am building. After unboxing I had this tool up and running in less then 5 minutes. I was able to flush trim and them put round over edge on a bottom of my 4' x 8' workbench and then used another bit to create a nice edge a shelf holding the air compressor that was added to the workbench. Bit changes and depth adjustments are quick and easy. It is not too loud but hearing (and eye) protection are still recommended.
