my goto router every time
This is my go to router fro every wood project i have in my shop. the options are awsoome and lets you have a veriaty of condition in one single tool. weather I use the 1/2" or 1/4" collet, there's no bit I can't use on it. The plunge base is super easy to use and let's you do outstanding projects even if yoou don't have a router table or dado stack available. The speed wheel is accurate and easy to handle on any type of wood and yoou can adjust as you go as well. Would definitely recommend this set to anyone.

Great for dovetail jigs
I use it for dovetails no problems using the porter cable bushings on her. She is very user friendly. All and all she's every thing you need in a router.

All around features I was looking for.
Bought this to replace a 20 year old fixed base one speed router. First use was on a new table saw wing router table. Works fine so far. Router table is in with a router lift and now making a router fence. With a good bit and the right speed it cut clean and quickly.

Great mid range router
I use my router for just about every project from jointing edges, profiling, inlaying, to planing slabs. It’s handled everything with pretty much no problem. I have a beefy Amana bit I use for planing slabs and it cuts like a hot knife through butter. Nice durable build!

Good overall, needs an Led light
I like the router overall, but I have seen other reviews commenting on the lack of a Led light. Very difficult to see what you are doing without a light.
