Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice tool.. not milwaukee tough The plunge base is unfortunately very delicate. Knocked it off a shelf that sits 8" off the ground without the router in the base and it rendered it completely useless (it's honed so the slightest ding and the router isn't going back in) hence the MASSIVE plastic case the give you to store the router in. The fixed base and router still work great. Thoroughly disappointed with the plunge base.. should maybe have an insert for when the router isn't inside if it's that fragile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome tool for a great price, but lacks add-ons. This router was recommended by a few YouTube users, and my expectations were not let down. This router is exactly what I wanted in a router, with it's fixed and plunge bases and few accessories, such a quarter-inch and a half-inch colette, two wrenches, a centering guide and vac-attachment. The unit itself is 5 stars, but the lack of an edge guide or circle-cutter attachment, and also, the vac-attachment does not fit the hose-end of any of my vacs (they're either too big or too small). This has me now improvising up some adapter for this to work. I shouldn't need to do this. This makes me give this a 3-star rating for that. I have searched the Internet for this tool, but no one seems to have it in stock... anywhere. I really wish Milwaukee would start including these add-ons with their tools to save future customers these hassles. I can make an edge guide and a circle cutter myself, and I can adapt the vac-hoses to this thing. The quality of the tool, the great case it comes in and the quality of the manufactured parts, the variable speeds, soft-start-up, and well make up for the deficiencies. The case even has storage for router bits of both sizes, so if you only have a few, you can store them in the case for easy access. NOTE!: For those who need to make their own edge guide, you need to find two 9/32" metal rods at whatever length you like and then, out of wood, make some straight edge guide. You can get plans for this in the internet, but the rod-size I mentioned is important for best fit in this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Router Does it All!p This is my third router...and the best yet. It’s light yet powerful, full-featured and well-designed. It handles all I need of a router. I’ve used it freehand, in a router table, and on a slab-flattening sled. Great every time. Easy to switch between fixed base and plunge base. It would have been nice to have a collet shaft lock so only one wrench needed for bit changes, but not a big deal. I highly recommend this tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Have been very happy with this router combo set. The plunge has a nice smooth / positive feel to it, the depth gauge is accurate and very easily fine tuned, the on / off is exactly where you want it and the low RPM torque is fantastic as ripping through harder wood. If you're considering this investment, factor in the cost of good quality and well sharpened bits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milwaukee Router Amazing tool overkill on the case lol but I guess you would want to keep it safe.

What is the collet size?

Asked by: Thorpedo
This router comes with a 1/4&quot; &amp; 1/2' collet. I have both size bits for the DIY jobs i do. I purchased this router in March and it works great using it free hand and also with my router table.
