After cutting too many keyholes in picture frames with my PC 7539, I need something lighter, a lot lighter! I used a friends DW621 and the power, weight, ergonomics and dust collection were all great. If anyone has a lightly used one they no longer need or want, let me know, pictures would be helpful.

The updated version of that router is a 618, which is a great tool. It is surprisingly light and well balanced for the power it has.
The 611 is another good choice if you don’t mind being limited to a 1/4” collet.
The only complaint I have heard against the 621 is that it can feel tippy due to the narrower base.
Good luck.

The 618 is a fixed base router, while a plunge base might be available, I prefer a dedicate plunge router.

Both the DW618 and DW621 are still made and available. Albeit, the DW618 (multi-base router) seems to have higher available across retailers.

I believe the DW618 plunge base is based on the design of the DW621, and it is awesome to use.

I have a this

I’ve plugged it in a couple times just to hear it run. Soft and sweet isn’t adequate

pm or call me – forgot to mention, it’s new as in never been used, just sitting in the shop in it’s case getting dusty
