Missing link
I would have rated this higher but for a kit that has almost everything it didn’t have the the spacer piece needed for the plunge router to use template guide. Had to order to use. Should have Absolutly been included. Worked great and functioned as needed.

Great little router
What a great palm router kit! I was at first shocked at how large the box was when it arrived. the nylon case is quite large, but houses all accessories neatly. The power is much better than other palm routers i've used, and the depth adjustment is smooth and precise. I have yet to use all of the accessories, but they appear well made and better quality than expected.

Can I get it to be powered from a 110v power supply (yellow plug) accessible to British safety standards?
Gavin on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This router indicates it is 120V. If the power outlet is truly 110V it will
operate correctly. I'm unfamiliar with the "yellow plug" you describe, but
British Standard BS 1363 is 220 - 240V and will burn up the motor. You
would need a transformer to convert to 110 - 120V if you are using standard
British power outlet. I have a great deal of experience with international
power formats. If you can identify the Yellow outlet you are describing, I
may be able to assist further. you can use the following site to help with
identification. http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity/plugs-and-sockets/
Otherwise, I would place a multi-meter on the outlet and verify the voltage.
Can it only use 1/4 inch bits or can it use 1/2 inch bits to

BEST ANSWER: This set uses 1/4" shanks only.
