Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first router. There are two issues that keep this from being the best I could imagine. First, as I have read from some others, it was missing the 1/2" collet. Second, the fine adjustment can move. And of course, it goes deeper. This thing is extremely easy to use. I am glad I bought it.

Called DeWalt support and they said they were out of 1/2” collets. Have been waiting 3 weeks for them to ship and finally heard that it is supposedly in the mail. Still waiting to use the router. Hoping that it works as well, so only 3 stars for now.

Where can the template bushings for Dovetail Jigs be obtained?

Asked by: LGLDSR71
Hello LGLDSR71 Thank you for your contact. We apologize for any trouble or inconvenience in finding information. DEWALT no longer offers template guides, however our sister company, Porter Cable offers them individually and as the set Model 42000 which work universally with the DEWALT routers. Best Regards Sherri C DEWALT
