Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than most router brands available Good machine. Plenty of power and runs true which is important when a big bit is spinning at 20,000 rpm.

Does this router have an LED light that illuminates the work area?

Asked by: David
No. I&rsquo;m not aware of any that do but there could be a few out now. My biggest issue with visibility has always been getting enough airflow and approaching from an angle so that sawdust wasn&rsquo;t obscuring things.

Does Milwaukee have a table for this router?

Does Milwaukee have a table for this router?
Asked by: Winston
Hi Winston! We do not have a specific table for our 2-1/4 Max HP Router Kit with Case (5616-21).

Which Milwaukee can be used without a table?

Asked by: James
This router along with all Milwaukee routers can be used without a table. This grip style is quite comfortable and is stable to use free-handed. The only Milwaukee router generally designed for table use specifically is the 3-1/2 HP Router (5625-20). But even this one can be used without a router table.

Can an edge guide be affixed to this router?
Asked by: Rick
Yes, there's a spot where rods can be inserted into the base and tightened down. I made my own out of 1/2&quot; cabinet grade plywood that uses the same screws that attach the black footplate.

I will ask the same question as previously asked only because this will be my first router purchase and will be using it to trim edges do i need a guide to get a straight cut or can i just run it along side of material to trim unequaly
Asked by: Shorty
Ok, so I don't know what type of answers you were getting before when asking this question, however the confusion may lie in the question mores than the answers. Yes you can use this router to trim edges of material; especially when using the proper bit with an edge guide or roller as part of the bit. And yes you can simply run the router along the edge of the materials to trim it unequally, if by unequally you mean not evenly or square to the material. Bottom line is this router is capable of doing almost anything you can imagine...great balance and power.
