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 Router is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 462.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impulse purchase Was grabbing a flush cut bit for a kitchen laminate project and looked down and saw this really cute baby router. My brain instantly went into reasons why I need to buy this mode. Lightweight, get closer to the walls, it's adorable. Okay, I gave in and bought it. Trimming off the countertop was a breeze and didn't require two hands to keep it balanced. Good thing my husband never asks to see my Home Depot receipts.....

This works awesome!! I was also looking at the makita, but when I got my hands on it, I wasn't real impressed. When I unlocked the base, the router body dropped down a lot. Unlock the the rigid , it doesn't move until you adjust the knob. Seems to have plenty of power. Very smooth, and the light really comes in handy. Dust collection isn't going to happen. That's the only thing I see negative about this router. Buy it. You won't regret it.

I purchased a ridgid cordless drill at work a few years ago, and I really like it. I like the quality of their tools. You get a nice carry case, a superb edge guide, well made and robust. Not some cheap bendable one. And for $99!

Plenty of power to round over cutting boards and small around the house projects. I have a full size router, and have found I use this 10x more than my full size. At this point, my full size router NEVER leaves the router table.
