I am about to purchase a Menard’s Performax 1-1/4 compact router. It is on sale this week for only $49. This comes with both 1/4” and 3/8” collets. It has a 6.5 amp motor, led light, variable speed with soft start. It also has a two year warranty as do other Performax power tools. I should add that I am more of a hobbyist when it comes to woodworking. I make sawdust. I welcome your response.

Seems like a decent deal. You can try it to see if you like it. Sure is a cheap enough price especially with the power and accessories.

I have one but yet to use it. I have had good luck with Menards service on there tools. Save the receipt, If you have a problem with it they will give you a new one or that amount of credit towards a more expensive one.

I have two of these routers. They will get hot if you use it for a long period of time and the depth adjustment can be a pain, but for the price I think it works great.
