Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing Crucial Part I bought this compact router a few weeks ago and only opened it up yesterday to put a small round over on some custom MDF shelving. I tried to put the bit into the router and tighten the collet only to find that I’m missing the crucial split sleeve inside the collet. I checked the box and the bag that came with the router but no luck. Needless to say, I couldn’t finish my job and had to come back the next day with my big router. A little frustrating to say the least. Other than that, every other part was accounted for and the router seems like it’s worth the price, but I’ll have to see once I find the split sleeve (if I can find it).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tool I bought this laminate trimmer a while ago and finally got to use it a few weeks ago, It worked like a charm, very light and compact and the soft start is a great feature, it doesn't jerk out of your hand when you start it. This tool adjusts very easily up and down and locks tight. As a previous reviewer said, it would be nice to only need one wrench to change bits, but still not a huge deal. It also comes with a molded case which I like ,The other thing that is great is the long cord with the lighted picture on the plug, it doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you have multiple things plugged in it makes it easy to grab the right plug. Overall, awesome tool with a great warranty

Rated 1 out of 5 by from EXACT same issue as @handyman123 I bought this router on sale a couple of months ago. The good: it's a great little router - time will tell how long the brushes/bearings last vs. the DeWalt trimmer I operate on my CNC machine. The bad: Exact same issue as @Handyman123 describes below - Ridgid were unable to recognize my purchase for warranty registration purposes (yet they were able to recognize/acknowledge my purchase of the Ridgid Spindle Sander I bought a couple of days later). I called the 'help'line (which was anything but), and no dice. I too own (to this point) a a number of other Ridgid products (12" mitre saw, table saw, various sanders & cordless drills), and this one experience was enough to completely turn me off the brand. No more Ridgid products for me, thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't say I didn't tell you to buy it... By far the cheapest trim router in its class and by far the most superior. I use this on all my projects. Great speed adjustment and great accessories come with it. It is fairly quiet and love how easy it is to hold. Very good line of sight to the bit and the LED light is useful. Comes with a handy little case for storage and lifetime service agreement to top it off. Only con is the power cord is a little short I find. But they do have an 18V brushless one so I might be splurging on that soon to go along with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My go to routers These little routers are great. I have two of the newer series and one older unit. They are always loaded with a round-over or bevel bit for quick work while finishing houses. The older one feels a bit nicer in the hand and the toggle switch is trouble free. The newer style switch has been intermitent on one of the newer routers. Just needs a little tap sometimes and it starts up. Might have to bring it to service one day. Great power , great value . No need to buy any other brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working in the middle of the first job I bought this router on sale. I was too excited about the price, great reviews and the lifetime warranty. It is very comfortable to hold and easy to use and produces great results. It worked well in the beginning, I was using it for 5 mins at a time and let it rest for 10 mins until I am ready for the next piece. After a while it started shutting down which is ok, I let it rest for a few mins and would start again. A couple of times after it shutdown completely and the motor wouldn't run for more than one or two seconds. I am very disappointed in this product. It was going to be my first ridgid product, but now its my last. I am very grateful homedepot took it back after I bought it two months ago. It was my first use however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool Bought it in hopes it could act as a trimmer, its intended use and as a router. I was not disappointed. It is comfortable and can handle shaping hardwoods with no problem. The depth adjustment could be easier to set but I can live with it. Bit changing requires removing the base and the use of two wrenches but it is a simple design that keep the tool bit secure and safe for the user. So less areas to break deeming the tool useless. Also love the life time service agreement.

What shank size will this except?

Asked by: Jeff
1/4"

Can you purchase alternate collet sizes for this router, or the cordless version? It would be nice to be able to use 1/8" or 5/16" bits with it as well as the standard 1/4" size.

Asked by: Kevin
Hi Kevin, It is recommended that you stick with the 1/4" collet for this router.

I took off the collet nut to replace the collet size and I have lost the original. Where could I purchase a replacement? I really love this router and it was worked well for years.

Asked by: FourthStreetHomes

The router bit easily slips in and out even though I tightened it. When I bought a Diablo bit, it came with an another cone shaped part that when installed under the nut tightens the bit.  Is that the way it should be?   Why didn’t router have that part?
