Great router

Review Summary

I now own 3 of these routers. The first one I bought about 30 years ago and it still runs great. The D Handle is very easy to use and gives you great control. It comes with both 1/4" and 1/2" collets allowing a great choice of bits. I have used it to run the coping cutters for cabinet doors in oak, ash, walnut and cherry. This routers run it without a problem.
