User reviews

This router is excellent, but I've have a few issues. This was my first time purchasing a router.1. This router does not take 1/2" bits. As I discovered after buying, any straight bits over 25mm go up to a 1/2" straight away. So you're not going to be able to use this for more serious jobs, unless you're willing to pay through the nose for extortionate high-tech 1/4" bits.2. The instructions that come with the router are a bit rubbish, so there's a lot of things you basically have to guess, or watch youTube videos on, to figure out.3. It's pretty hard to see the bit when the router is in use. The dust extractor adaptor only makes it worse.4. The provided guide is very fiddly and awkward to adjust, as is the depth meter.5. Changing the bits is very awkward due to the placement of the spindle lock.On the plus side, the router itself has plenty of power and has had no issue cutting through the wood I've thrown at it. It's comfortable to hold and use and seems to be pretty well built.
For the money this is pretty good as a first router. I've bevelled a few oak boards and shelves with it and made an oak headboard so far. Fine adjustment and control is a bit fiddly and requires some workarounds but at this price you have to expect some compromises. It suits my purposes so I'm not complaining.It will not do heavy duty cycle work, you will need a larger collet and cutters if you intend to work with a lot of hardwood and using big cuts.
I needed a router to cut a channel in a kitchen drawer front to accept the drawer base. With a 4mm bit, this router did the job perfectly, and the spacing guide made it easy to cut a perfectly straight and true channel. The router has three different collets, allowing it to use bits with a shank of 0.25 inch, 6mm or 8mm.
