Great router
I recently purchased this router after seeing what was needed for my router table insert. I read a couple of reports of problems with the collets. I can see that if care is not taken you can cross thread the collet which would make the router unusable. I took care of screwing down the collets and found that I had no problem with the router bits staying in place. My router serial number is in the 830xx range.

Typical Dewalt quality
Came with everything needed to start using except the Owner's Manual was not the original, but a copy with really hard to read print. The Dewalt website has digital copies of all their manuals so it's not too huge of an issue. Other than that the price was good and I look forward to getting a lot of use out of it.

as good as new
I ordered this router in order to use it with horizontal router jig.
The router arrived in good condition just as new one and I wish that inside the tool is in the same condition.
So far I used it for tennoning and mortising in hard wood and it does very well with its 1.75HP.
Changing the bit is a little difficult when the motor is in the base, bat removing the motor out of the base is easy.
I am sure that it was good decision to perches this router.

Does this come with a 1/2" collet only?
Ed on Feb 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Does not come with a 1/2" collect only. The product comes with a 1/2" collect and its collect range is 1/4" to 1/2".
Can this be attached to my Craftsman router table?
plowboy on Jan 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we could not guarantee its compatibility. We would recommend contacting Craftsman to confirm. It may b helpful to let them know that the base opening is 6 in. x 6 in.
