Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had seen Norm in The New Yankee Workshop brag... I had seen Norm in The New Yankee Workshop brag about how well a D-HANDLE router was much easer to control. After using this one I can really appreciate the extra control you have. I have three other routers that I use but this will my first choose when I need to use one.

What size Diameter is the motor body? None of your router spec;s list this information and if you're using a lift its somthing you have to know. Home Depot needs to fix this its a mistake not listing this dimension on the spec's. They also need to show optional parts you can get like if a route comes with a 1/4" collet you can buy a 1/2 collet for it as well separate. Most of them you can. Its called a tie in sale!
Asked by: Bobbg
I purchased my new router from Home Depot three weeks ago . There was both a 1/2 "and A 1/4 " with it. And today isn't it down flat without bringing the collet up and it broke the two of the fingers in the collet. I called the service phone number spoke to a lady, explained the problem and she said she would send me a replacement at o charge and said I should have it within the week. That type of service explained why my shop is filled with yellow and black tools

? No 1/2 Inch Collet?

At $80 + more than the step down and a larger and smarter motor ... there is no 1/2 inch Collet? I am out looking for a 1/2 inch and spied this one ... very cool functional looking ... but the $119 step down from this has a 1/2 conversion ability ... not sure I get it? Why are the routers with a 1/2 collet so difficult to purchase?
