        Comments about 1-3/4 HP Fixed-Base Router with Soft Start:

        This is my first router and I love it. With a diablos bit it made dadoes very easily and neatly. After using it the first day my comment to my husband was, "I wish I'd gotten a router years ago!" It makes building cabinets so much easier. I am very satisfied with my Skil router. I bought the factory refurbished unit and see no difference between it and a new unit.

            I've read this in other reviews: the sliding lock that holds the spindle stinks. In fact, I had to take mine off in order to get the bit out. After you have the nut on, you can't take off the sliding lock without cutting off the raised plastic gooves; so I'd take it off before using the router, and just use a wrench to hold the spindle while tightening the nut.

            New Vs. 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.
