Originally, I was guided towards other brands and other routers. Eventually, I went with this Ryobi because I just needed a router to make an area for hinges in my doors. I figure since this one came with a bit, I could save some money along with it being inexpensive. Well, I was very impressed with this tool. It comes with a plastic guard to shield any flying pieces while still being able to see the work and also LED lighting so that you can see your cuts the entire time. It was a very solid purchase and I look forward to using it for a long time.

However, I learned one of life's lessons: ALWAYS check that you are getting a new tool before leaving the store. I brought the first one home and it was obvious that it had been used (sawdust, missing parts, etc.) However, Home Depot replaced it with a new one (I had them open the box :-)) Hard to understand how someone can justify using a tool for one job then bring it back for a refund. I call that renting. Would that be cheaper? Anyway, just starting buying some Ryobi tools. So far so good. Only complaint is that the instructions are hard to follow. Illustrations in the back of the book, not with the steps. Need better explanation of how to set depth.

The only issue I have with this product is that you really need to torque down the lock nut for the bit and the guard seems to slide up and down even in the locked position depending on if you are applying pressure to the router or the guard. I wound up measuring everything out with the guard pushed as hard against the router as possible and when I went to us it I would apply gentle force to the top onto the material I am working with. The bits that came with it didn't seem to hold up to the amount of routing I was doing so I went and got a Diablo bit and haven't had a single issue since.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought as a backup - bits not included as stated Bought this as backup to my primary router which is attached to a router table. It appears to be well built and simple to operate and comes with a convenient carry bag and collett wrench. I purchased directly from my local Home Depot store. Was disappointed to find that not bits were included despite what the advertisement says. I had the router working within minutes of removing from the box. Bits are easy to change. Depth adjustments too. It fits that hand well and is nicely balanced. This router is priced fairly and should be perfect for occasional use.

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

I also bought the Ryobi router stand and the two together have been getting a lot of use. I've made 5 new hives, 2 new nucs and numerous other items that needed the router. I highly recommend this router its tough and works great when added to a router table!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good starting router, a little larger than others. Great value for the price and starting router... Good starting router, a little larger than others. Great value for the price and starting router bits included. Put in a bit, adjusted the height and starting routing, no tools required. Needs a little bit of space, the dust goes everywhere and it is a loud power tool. But for the Value it was what I expected for what a starter router should be. I was stuck, I needed to cut a small track in wood frame. I tried using the power saw using multiple passes, a drill with a routing bit, even a hammer and a chisel. There really is no substitute for a router for a nice clean look. Now that I have it, my small projects are going to look a lot nicer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I purchased this Ryobi router so that I could use it in a router table, and have my other router ... 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.
