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

      The refurbished Skil 2-1/4 HP Combo Base Router Kit with Soft Start from CPO is no disappointment. The tool is well-made, works perfectly, and the plunge/fixed base feature is quite handy. The tool bag provided is a very nice perk, even though my router is most often table mounted. I am consistently impressed with the value and quality of CPO refurbished tools. My purchases have all been indistinguishable from new, so much so that I only purchase new tools when refurbished units are not available from CPO. I would not hesitate to give the tools as gifts. Delivery is very prompt. I can't comment on customer service as I have never had a need to contact them. Pricing is fair and periodic promotions make for even greater value.

              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.

            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.
