Questions & Answers

Does this router come with any bits

Asked by: Paul
Yes, it comes with 3bits: a 5/16 straight bit, 5/32 roman ogee, 1/4 roundover bit,

What router bits can be used on this tool?

I did not want to buy ryboi bits.
Asked by: Prengers
This router has a 1/4" collet. You are not restricted to ryobi bits, just to bits with a 1/4" shaft.

Will this fit on the Ryobi universal router table?

Asked by: ShakeyJC
Yes, I currently have mine mounted to the Ryobi table. Works great for light jobs!

Can you use this router with the Porter-Cable dovetail jig?

Asked by: Chuck
I'm finding it to be a pain to set up with the dovetail jig. Ryobi does not make base plates that work with guide bushing for their routers, so you will have to make your own or buy one of a different router and drill pilot holes. Wish I had just started out with a different router instead.

8.5-Amp Fixed Base Router is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Bought this router about a month ago to replace an old one. This one is easy to use and has great features such as the lights and plastic shield over the cutting area to allow you to see what the router is cutting. Would definitely recommend this Router for for any DIY'r no matter what level of experience with power tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exceeded my expectations This router does the job just like anyone of the more pricey ones. The quality stands up to the Ryobi name that is why I continue to purchase Ryobi tools. Powerful and dependable and lasts. I Have been using this router for 2 months and is still going strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product I bought the Ryobi router as well as the Ryobi door hinge jig and routed out all the hinges on 5 slab doors. Both the hinge jig and the router itself made my project so much easier and saved me a ton of time. Great tool and at a great price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well designed Powerful and comfortable to use. Bought 1 month ago no complaints yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router that doesn't clean out your wallet! For the price this router is hard to beat. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I purchased this router to go with the router table that I purchased at the same time. It is very easy to use and able to adjust it without any difficulty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I bought this last month and works great for those small projects.
