Meh!
At best this router is OK. The motor is solid and the light is very nice. The issues I have is that (1) the depth setting on the fixed base is junk. You realy need to have a micro adjustment option. (2)The removable base causes the bit to be off centered from the opening on the base. This is a problem when using a jig to make dovetails. (3)Accesories are hard to find. Skil does not make an offset base plate and any accesory you may want needs to be shipped to you. I bought an adapter to use it on my jig that cost $2.50. Total cost with shipping was $13. This router is what taught me the lesson that you always buy Delta/Porter-Cable power tools.

Value at a Price
The router looks good and has good features, but the depth control does not hold. The ability to change the base seems like a good idea, but the execution is poor. If you hold the router firmly for precise work, the bit creeps out make it impossible to do precise work without rechecking the depth after each cut.

Be aware
Giving this three stars only because of price. Be aware that the reconditioned unit does not have
collet for either 1/4 or 1/2 inch. To order from Skil I found to be extremely difficult. In fact so difficult I will not be buying Skil products in the future.

Designed for quality and dependability.
Typically, a router throws a wide avenue of dust and chips, so why is the "Dust Port Vacuum Adapter" not included with the Skill 1825? And, why is the adaptor mentioned several times as an optional accessory but there is no information as to where to order it, and it is never included in your list of optional accessories. This was shortsighted on your part and frustrating on mine.

I would buy this again, good value
Use it for my business building special orders of cabinets and furniture. Found that the micro adjust could use improvement, too much play in the fixed base when you make an adjustment. The fixed base doesn't hold the router real tight from side to side. It's a good buy for the price I payed for it.

Great router. Solid...Lots of features.
I bought this router to replace a 35 year old Craftsman router. It is great to get both a fixed base and a plunge router for such a reasonable price. The adjustments are easy and accurate. I like the fact that it will take 1/2" and 1/4" shanked bits. I cannot say enough about this produce. Try it, you'll like it.

I recently purchased the 1825 Router, the owners manual refers to an accessory called the "Dust Port Adapter" for what I believe is a vacuum hose hook-up/connection. However I am unable to find it on the Skilshop site. Can you send me info and pricing?
