Questions & Answers

DOES THIS ROUTER HAVE A LIFETIME WARRENTY????

Asked by: MAGNUM
More research still says that brushes are, indeed, covered by the Lifetime Service Agreement. Ambiguity is construed against the drafter, so you ought to get those brushes for free, if everyone plays by the rules. That means you have to register for that Lifetime Service Agreement.

Could this router be used to put a 45 degree edge on deck top cap railing?

I have a deck that was built recently which was left with squared railing top caps. I would like to cut a 45 degree edge so it matches my new fence also. I thought rather than removing & cutting on a table saw I might be able to use a compact router instead?
Asked by: Mcgyver210
Routers are made to give you an edge on a 90-degree angle, or perpendicular to the base plate. If you had a router bit that had a 45-degree angle, then you could get an edge on a 45-degree angle.

5.5 Amp Corded Compact Fixed-Base Router is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 497.

It is the best one I have used to this date! I have used many other brands in the past but this one has plenty of power and is by far my favorite. I work in a cabinet shop and use this one every day! The only negative is I wish they would include a second wrench for changing the bits. You can get many years of service from this tool. Great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Tool! Have only used this a few times but had worked great so far!
Date published: 2018-10-22
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Room for improvement As others have mentioned, it is difficult to tighten the collett sufficiently to hold a bit. I was using a round over bit to remove the edge on a square piece of lumber and the bit became loose. One of the base screws became loose, and allowed sawdust to pack under the base, resulting in the base not being square..
