              I bought the router to use in my new router table. To do so, I had to remover the handles. Also, the above table height adjusting T wrench doesn't work on the KREG table. It require a hole too big which would weaken the table insert. Otherwise, it is a terrific router

                I purchased this as a refurbished model to use in a Bosch router table and couldn't be happier with it. It arrived quickly, and looked brand new. I have owned it for several months now, used it at least 3 days per week, and it has performed flawlessly.

                  Bought this and another smaller 1.75 HP Milwaukee to add to our collection of routers. I have been a Bosch man for over 20 years but have been disappointed with their recent models - they just don't make the Bosch like they used to. We had bought 3 Bosch routers in the last 3 years and all of them had bad switches (which they say they have resolved) and the adjustment system didn't work smoothly like ones made back in the '90's. So, their loss is Milwaukee's gain. After 2 weeks of hard use in router tables the Milwaukee's are running great. And we LOVE the adjustment system with the hex wrench from the top - very sweet.

                      No, Milwaukee does not currently make tables for any of their routers. There are many other companies though that do make tables to use.

                    Q:

                    I have read several reviews that state the switch on the Model MILN5616-20 has a problem with saw dust collecting in the on/off switch. Has this issue been addressed or is this still a problem. I am considering purchasing this router but I have concerns about this issue.

                      Some units have experienced problems with dust collecting in the switch, those units have been fixed under warranty. Unfortunately this has not been addressed..

                  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
