8.5 Amp 1-1/2 Peak HP Fixed Base Router is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 331.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a good router but it is not great. However, the price point make it worth an extra star. ... This is a good router but it is not great. However, the price point make it worth an extra star. I used this for several hours straight cutting hard maple and it is did not miss lick. However, the base is not perfectly centered around the shaft. May not make a big difference to most people, but it does to me. However, the base plate is adjustable and you can center it to the shaft although it is not easy. The height adjustment is easy to use, but it is not very accurate. the play in the mechanism makes the gauge worthless. The shaft lock is a metal slide that moves over the shaft at the base. I'd prefer a lock that disables the motor and I do not think this one does. For almost half of the next acceptable router, the price make it an easy choice.

I purchased this Ryobi router so that I could use it in a router table, and have my other router available for free-hand use. This required drilling new holes in the mounting plate for the HUSKY table pictured. Once mounted, the router performed very well. The feel of the switch is solid, and the motor noise was about the same as others I have owned. The only other note I would make is that in adjusting the depth, the action of the screw seemed a little sloppy...i.e...less solid than others I have used. However, once the depth is set, the motor clamp holds it very secure when engaged. The shaft lock is nice to have for changing bits, and much easier than using two wrenches on some other routers. I have used it for several weeks now making rails and stiles for cabinet doors. It has performed as I expected. Note: I was able to find a dust pickup cover for another Ryobi model, modifiy it slightly, and it screwed into place to attach a hose...another plus factor. Given the price paid, I am more than satisfied with this router.

This router cut through the corian with precision and ease. The handles made it easy to control. I used a carbide blade I had bought. Not sure if the straight bit that comes with this would work on solid counters like corian, but it likely would. This tool is very stable and has a lot of power.

My dad used to be a carpenter when I was a little girl and now he's so proud to see me using the knowledge he passed on. Such a proud daughter yet the hardest thing was getting his approval on the project I was working on. I think I'm doing a great job, still not finished but I'm making great progress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for DIY home projects I bought this to build custom shelves in my office. The bits it came with did a great job making my shelf look professional. other routers I have used did not have a light or a shield so that was a plus.

The fit and finish is spot on and using this tool one would not guess that it cost less than $100. I shopped around for awhile before purchasing this router and I originally bought this router due to the low price tag because I was worried I would not use it enough to justify buying a more expensive unit. So I purchased this router first to see if it I would use it enough to eventually upgrade later on. After using the router on several projects I have no intention of upgrading anytime soon because this router has exceeded all of my expectations. My only caution is how loud this router is, I suggest wearing ear protection. The LED light is also a nice touch. The pictures I included is some of the work I have done with this router and the bits that came with it. Don't critique my work too hard, I am far from a professional
