Best bang for your buck
Got this set because of a wall-to-wall shelving job I'm doing (routing out grooves for sliding plexiglass doors as well as profiling the faceframes). I've had an old [...] router that I got for free but I wanted to ensure quality and I have not been dissapointed. I like that Dewalt includes a case big enough for all the attachments AND there was even room for the extra fence that I bought (how sweet is that?) The router itself has plenty of power and while I can't say I'm too familiar with plunge or D-handle router bases, they seem to be designed to be pretty self-explanatory and I'm looking forward to using this set on a lot of other projects.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
