    Pros

    • Easy To Use

    Cons

    • Bit elevation is clumsy
    • Needs a knob for adjustin

    Best Uses

    • In The Workshop

    I installed the router permanently in a table. It works very well, but raising and lowering the bit is very clumsy at best. There is a knob availale for that, but it's $30 wherever I've seen it.
