Routers Reviews

Overall Rating:5 out of 5 stars.
"For production routing, particularly on a router table, a heavy duty router with the power to spin a full range of variably sized router bits for extended periods of time is the way to go. For light"... (read full reviews)
Overall Rating:4.8 out of 5 stars.
"Paid full price and I don't regret. They do their job but remember, the carbide is very fragile so don't drop it, it will chip off easily."... (read full reviews)

"I have 4 routers and this is my go-to router when I need something done quickly without the table. The 1/4" and 1/2" collets included make this router stand out. Being able to use both fixed/plunge"... (read full reviews)

"I bought this on sale for $80, you'd be crazy not to buy it on sale, like any other ct tool. I have used a lot of the edge bits and they have cut very clean on spruce. They are very good value when on"... (read full reviews)

"Router is great, but contrary to the fixed router or the one with the digital display, this one has a 1/4" collet, making it only compatible with 1/4" shanks. So it basically mean that if you get the"... (read full reviews)

"Very powerfull and easy to work with. It can compete with more expensive (brand name) routers. I am not a fan of CT tools, but this one you can rely on."... (read full reviews)

"I bought this router to build bee hive frames. It worked well for the money, the table requires a bit of fidgeting to get you cut square."... (read full reviews)

"Plaid full price for this router and felt a little guilty but not anymore. This is a fantastic machine! The motor is reasonably quiet, it is light and the screw type depth adjust is the best I have"... (read full reviews)

"If you have a smaller router and doing some edging, these bits are pretty good for the price. Just don't put them in a larger router, or you will burn out the bit. I have been using mine for about 6"... (read full reviews)

"This top flush router is excellent for lining up an edge of a board using a guide. Properly used, it can help you to cut out a pattern based on a template or guide."... (read full reviews)

"Please note we are newbies to routing, so our comments are probably more useful to other newbies, not experienced woodworkers. We bought a Mastercraft router table and router (#54-6938-6) during the"... (read full reviews)

"I bought this fancy router for light duty work because it cost the same price as the regular router when it was on sale. It is much more than I need and took some time to figure it out. However, think"... (read full reviews)

"When my Bosch Colt single speed trim router got stolen, I thought it was an opportunity to upgrade to a variable speed Colt. Then the wife and I had a “discussion” about the price and suddenly this"... (read full reviews)

"I'm not sure why the other guy thought spinning router bits in a drill would be an accurate gauge on the quality since most hand drills suffer from a little runout. I run these bits on a router table"... (read full reviews)

"Easy set up. Bought this one after initially buying a Wolf Craft (absolutely hokey fence, won't fit Mastercraft plunge router). The Mastercraft Router table is far better. The mounting plate is metal."... (read full reviews)

"I took the 1/4" straight bit and tried routing a foot long 1/4" inch deep groove in a 3/4" thick piece of pine and there was tear out the whole length of the groove. In contrast, a 3/8" CMT straight"... (read full reviews)

"Great idea, cheap construction. The guide is made of plastic, is not square with the ruler, and moves slightly by a degree or two, which will likely throw off how straight your cut will be. I would"... (read full reviews)
