Wish I had purchased sooner, using a router without any cord allowed me to concentrate on routing and working on my project instead of trying to keep the cord from hanging up. Plenty of power and easy to operate. Ridgid cordless router worked great on my first project seems like a quality tool.

Contacted HD and a new one was sent out. After a bit of research I discovered the Rigid batteries are notorious for failing.

Does this tool come with case and round subbase?

Asked by: Fly800
Hi Fly800, It does come with a bag to carry what is included in the kit, unfortunately there is not a round sub base that comes with this tool, however you can find aftermarket sub bases that will work for what you are looking for. Thanks, RIDGID Canada

According to the Router manual: To set the zero reset function to zero while the bit is at zero ...

According to the Router manual: To set the zero reset function to zero while the bit is at zero depth, hold the micro depth adjustment knob in place and rotate the zero reset function ring until it reads “0”. These two rings seem to move together. Is there an easy method of turning just the zero reset function ring? Do others actually use this measurement feature? This compact router has a variable speed (17,000 to 25,000 RPM). When would one change the speed and why? Which applications are advantageous with the round base? Other than for cleaning, why would one want to remove the motor from the base?
Asked by: Dale
Hey Dale! Thanks for the question. You are correct that these two rings are supposed to move together in unison. This feature is often used when someone needs to make very minor adjustments to the depth of their tool. The multiple speeds are there because some kits are not rated for 25,000 RPM, so in this situation lowering the speed could allow you to safely use a bit that you have on hand. Additionally, variable speed gives you thee option to meet needs for more specific applications. The round base is included for when you're in an ultra confined space and as an additional option meet user preferences. Removing the motor from the base serves a few functions including cleaning, servicing the tools, and inserting bits. Hope this helps!

hi, can I use the 3ah and 6ah octane battery kit with this router? I see it comes with 2ah and not sure if I need to use only

Asked by: vijay
Hi Vijay, Yes you can use a 3 Ah and 6 Ah pack with the router. Please keep in mind this will add more weight to the tool so it might throw off the balance of the router. If you're going to do this I'd recommend doing some practice with them before you use it on the actual work piece that you'll be routing.

Are you able to use a standard guide bushing for this router?

Are you able to use a standard guide bushing for this router?
Asked by: Diy57
The base is not designed to use a guide bushing. You have to find an after market base or make one. Other than that this router has been working out fine.
