Overview

Editor's Review: Tool Test: 2-1/4-hp Router Combo Kits

review date: July 1, 2009

This kit is another fairly solid entry that performed most tasks adequately, but none spectacularly. My favorite thing about this tool is the three LED lights mounted to the bottom of the motor. The plunge base worked smoothly, had only a tiny bit of play, and did not auto-lock. The fixed base, on the other hand, had some issues. Two of my three sets of template guides didn’t fit in the provided baseplate; the hole in the baseplate is just a little too small. Also, the depth adjustment has two full turns of slop in it, making accurate adjustments difficult. The Craftsman is also the only tool with a collet that does not allow for the use of two wrenches, which is a serious oversight.
