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

    The description implies it might have a 1/2" collet but none is provided. It would cost another 15 dollars or so to buy one with shipping so if you want a larger collet you might consider a different router. Also this one was pretty scratched up, not the normal like new that cpo usually sells.

                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.

                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.
