"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)

"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)
