I just received an email, alerting me of this special, so I thought I’d pass it on to my fellow Lumberjocks.

If it had free shipping I’d honestly probably jump on it. I like what I saw in the video, especially the case and the included accessories.

I could see a small plunger like that being very useful.

I also received the email and was just going to post the link here as well.
I don’t need another router though : ) LOL

I purchased this router some time back and have only used it a couple of times. It is a nice size to work with and seems pretty powerful. The plunge seemed to work well.

However, mine has a problem that just drives me nuts—the depth control setup doesn’t lock! The vibration of routing just backs the locking mechanism out and loses the setting. I almost screwed up a part I was making because I didn’t recognize what was happening. It may be fixable, so I haven’t gotten rid of it yet. I don’t know if anyone else has had this problem or not. Otherwise, it is a nice tool.

But my fix was to buy one of the DeWalt DW611PK combo kits when they were on sale—but I haven’t had a chance to use it yet.

i did take the jump and purchased the T4 got it Tuesday made three passes today and it died. the variable control i think is the issue. it will run on high but nothing else. the 2.95 passes it was great and the weight makes it must more user friendly for the projects i was planning. Local Rockler (45 minutes away) has it on sale today for 65 dollars. thinking i need to run over and buy one and return the peachtree one, but limited number of them per store. great timing just before Christmas!

I bought this router about 3 years ago. Ran less than 15 minutes and died. I sent it back and Trend made it good. I don’t use it very much but so far it has performed okay. Would I bother to buy it again? No.
