      This is a great Tool. the Adjustment ring could be improved, but still OK. One thing I noticed is if you turn adjustment ring until it hits either end, it is really hard to adjust the other direction. Almost feels like it is stuck. If fact my first Router did this and I thought it was defective. I sent it back for replacement, and CPO sent another ( really super service here.)

        • My Use Dovetailing

        Plenty of power for dovetailing but would be a good choice for any routing need. I think the weight-to-power ratio is just right. The soft start is a real nice feature to have.
