Compact router kit gives you lightweight options

Compact router kit gives you lightweight options

We savor small routers--call'em trim routers or compact routers; we don't care--for light-duty jobs where even a midsize 2-hp router proves cumbersome. So we love the flexibility DeWalt's DW611PK two-base kit provides. You can swap the 1-1/4-hp variable-speed motor between the fixed and plunge bases quickly to fit the task at hand. Weighing just under 6 pounds in its plunge base, this lightweight router works great for sign-making and routing inlays, stopped flutes, and hinge mortises. It uses only a 1/4" collet, limiting you to 1/4"-shank bits. It includes an edge guide for the plunge base. (Porter-Cable will offer a similar kit with a single-speed motor for $189.)

DeWalt Two-Base Compact Router Kit, #DW611PK, $199
