WOOD magazine review

Compact router kit works big, costs little

Review Summary

For about the same price (or less) that you’d pay for most trim routers, this kit provides a stout variable-speed (10,000–30,000 rpm) 1-hp motor, plunge and fixed bases, an edge guide, and a bearing-guided flush-trimming attachment. This router impressed me with its power and nimbleness in all sorts of applications. Despite the lack of a built-in LED light, good sight lines let me see the bit clearly in both bases during use.
Each base has good grip points, and the motor slips in and out of each with ease. I wish the plunge base would default to a locked position, freed to move up and down only when depressing the plunge lever. As it is, locking the lever required loosening my grip on the left handle. And I found the bit-depth scale and indicator clunky and ineffective, and had to set cutting depths by other means. —Tested by Bob Hunter, Tools Editor
