Got my New DeWalt Router with “D” handle from Amazon today with 6 Round over bits. Cant wait to kick the tires. I will post a review after I give it a work out.

I will say there are conflicting reviews over this machine. The FINISH is not what I am use to with past DeWalt equipment. Hard to explain. Just not as FINISHED as I once recall.

I have two of these kits, among other routers. I must say this is one of my favorites. The fixed base is great for dovetails, and the plunge base is velvety smooth. Very accurate too.

I didn’t know they had a 3 base kit. The D handle is my favorite configuration for handheld routing.

Yes I found this on Amazon with the three handles. Most of the reviewers say they didn’t think much about the D handle but fell in live with it
