Rated 4 out of 5 by from Free Sander? How can you say "free sander" when the same router is listed on your site for $99 without the sander and $129 with it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good “two” for less than “one” shop tools. The trim router worked great doing a plunge (manual adjust and start with pilot hole) cut on a 1.5” thick butcher block cut out for undermount sink, 1/4” at a time with a straight bit. Finished with a 1/2” round over on lip. Looks great! Was planning on spending 50% more just for the router but for 99 dollars and a palm sander included, how could you go wrong? The palm sander works great as well. You can use full sheets cut into quarters and if you want, they include a whole punch guide for sheets. I just carefully folded and they fit perfect, didn’t use whole punch. All in all, 2 quality tools for a hundred bucks. Can’t go wrong. Depending on what you will be routering, you will need some good router bits. One is included but is meh.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No sandpaper. The sander worked great until I used up the sandpaper it came with. Now I can't use the sander anymore because no one sells the sandpaper it requires. I've looked locally and online but can't find any. The router works good and I am happy with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good tools This trim router is a great tool, only downside is that when changing the bits, you struggle to loosen the collet to get the bit free cause of the casing. Sometimes you need to remove the whole part of get to the collet to change the bit. Other than that, this router is great. Also the 1/4 sheet sander works very well, it has new locking mechanism for holding sand paper, so the sandpaper doesn’t come off when using as the older model sander did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money!!! Loving both of these. I went with the corded for the consistent and constant power and they have both been amazing. Both are very comfortable in the hand. The sander is simple and straightforward putting the sandpaper in. The value of this pack is really what caught my eye. Well worth it and that ridgid warranty just can't be beat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal Great deal to get both for the price. The router is surprisingly quiet, has a decent light, and easy to change bits. Very easy to use one handed, light and ergonomic, haven't tried the flush bit it came with. It is a bit easy to get off angle due to its small size, but you get use to it quick. Haven't tried the sander yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Tools at a Great Price Both of these tools perform as expected with no surprises. These tools are great value for the money and are much more than hobby level quality. After some use it is easy to see that they will give years of dependable service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trim Router Have not used the palm sander yet, but the price was so great for the router that that was just a bonus. The router I use for all my door hardware, striker plates, hinges, latch plates, and it is awesome.

Can this be used for routing all projects like sign engraving and decorative edges? Or is is it for trimming laminate only?

Good day, Can someone please explain the difference between a "trim" router and a "palm" router? Are they exactly the same or is there any features that are different to the palm routers on the site.

Asked by: _Jme
They are the same tool with different names. Small Trim/palm Routers are for smaller pieces of wood where a steadier router is needed. They are held with one hand, where the larger Routers require two hands. Hope this helped. Steve
