    Comments about 2-1/4 HP Combo Base Router Kit with Soft Start:

    Main problem is the amount of pressure required to tighten (and then loosen chuck). Depth adjustment can be difficult for precise work. After playing a while and learning its idiosyncrasies, it has a good price/value. The LED lights are very helpful.

        Comments about 2-1/4 HP Combo Base Router Kit with Soft Start:

        I'm an avid DIY'er and love seeing a finished product, so, I decided to get deeper into the woodworking realm, and decided on a not too expensive router to learn on. Got this router, a few bits, and started making sawdust. Probably put 20 hours on it the first 2 weeks I had it, making joints (rabbet mostly) and doing edgework. For starters I'm only using cheaper/ softer wood (again, I want to learn inexpensively) so my opinion isn't fully formed. Saying that, I'm pretty happy with the 1830. I'm using low/ mid range bits but have yet to burn or tear wood. The power seems over the top and for pine and some oak, easily cuts through it. I have great visibility with the plunge or fixed base. It accepts 1/2 and 1/4 bits and the colette is pretty easy to open/close/lock. Trust me, I've changed a lot of bits already :) The handles were much more comfortable than I first thought by looking at it, and it's good having 2 on/off switches. The depth adjustment nob it pretty straightforward and works well. Love the LED light when you plug it in. Overall, love it and would highly recommend it to any of my friends.

          Comments about 2-1/4 HP Combo Base Router Kit with Soft Start:

          I'm a casual do-it-Yourselfer, a beginner to say. So far, My uses of this router are from basic edging of tables and shelves. I've never owned a router till i purchased this combo kit. It's been a good router so far. You get a plunge and fixed base router, so having the two for the price is big plus. It's also nice because you get a carry case to keep it in good condition over time when not using it. I can't say much about it's power due to it being my first router kit, but it hasn't failed me yet in routing tasks. The only flaw so far is the plunge feature tends to stick at times and can be tough to get back to normal position. Overall, I recommend this kit for beginners(like myself) and even experienced users.

            The easy open/close clamp makes adjustments up and down very quick and easy.Very unique idea.The larger than normal opening around the bit,along with the built in base light makes it much easier to see your cuts as you work.That was a big selling point for me.

              Skil 1830 is a router combo set of fixed base and plunge base. Is it possible to buy the fixed base alone because I have already purchased Skil 1827?

                A:

                Either the RAS800 or RAS900 will accept the Skil 1830 – However we recommend using the fixed-base only, and not the plunge base due to size and adjustment considerations.
