Very easy to use and i love jt
The unboxing was awesome, it was in its carry case and all the bits were easy to identify. I enjoyed using this router as it was easy to move around and the guide is clear/easy to see what you are doing. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone! I used this to inlay LED lights into a couple cornhole boards! It came out so cool! Wish you could post short videos here, I would show you!

    This thing is a beast!
    Now granted this is the first router that I’ve ever owned and I am a weekend wood warrior. This router is amazing. Very powerful. It’s all about using the right bit for whatever result you are looking for. Don’t takeoff too much material at one time or you’ll burn the wood. This thing was a great purchase for $89, it came with the bag and three bits! I love it. Most definitely make sure you wear eye protection as well as a mask. You’ll need it.

      I bought this at my local Home Depot (Hamilton Road store Gahanna Ohio). It is as advertised and works great with the router table I am using it with. The only issue I have is with the store. I bought this new from the new stock and in what appeared to be an unopened box. However, when I got it home and opened it I found the router box, bag and unit itself to have a significant amount of MDF dust in all mentioned components. A router bit was installed in the unit and was obviously used and not one of the three bits indicated as included in the packaging. Clearly it was bought for a one time use and returned to the store as unopened. It works fine and I am happy with it.

        Great Product That's Easy To Use
        I've heard about routers for years, but never really understood what they were for. Finally decided to buy one, after doing some research online. Now I'm amazed how easy the router is to use, and can't believe I didn't buy one before. And this Ryobi router is such a good deal at an incredible price for someone just starting to use one. I've only used it on a couple of small projects so far, but I've been very pleased at the results. It is really simple to use, whether mounted in a table or freehand, and videos I saw on Youtube were really helpful in getting me started.
