I sold couple of my routers. Mainly the Ridgid trim router is gone and also my Dewalt DW621 which could have been the most perfect light weight router if it wasn’t for ……..
Still have my favorite router DW625 and a second favorite Hitachi M12. But they feel heavy these days. Mainly in table use now. and my Stanley trim doesn’t have plunge so, I’ve had my eyes on this lightweight from Trend.
well, here’s the
Plunge Lever action lock ( my preference for plunge routers)
A lot of power
Low center of gravity
Removable router from base for freehand engraving.
3 position plunge dept adjustment.
Dust collection attachment.(Not Tested)
Nice case with extra collets and fence and guide bushing.
Plunge Rods have slight play in unlocked position (critical for accurate work). no play when locked.
Router shaft/bit not 100% perpendicular with base plate. (Critical for accurate work). could be the one I have.
Loud at max speed
So, if you are not a router and precision fanatic like I am than this is the best trim /plunge router bar none otherwise, you won’t get passed the cons.
