Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why is it so Difficult to Register the tools. I love RIDGID tools but sometimes near impossable to Register for Lifetime Warranty. They "RIDGID and HOME DEPOT" need to make this operation EASIER.

I purchased this router primarily because I am firmly in the Ridgid 18V ecosystem, and was initially really impressed with it (like I have been with my drills, circular saw, jig saw, etc.). But after a bit of use, I noticed some vertical slop (probably a millimeter or so) in the shaft, which made the fine adjustment unreliable, and no obvious way to fix it myself. I'll be returning this one for a replacement and hoping that I just had a bit of bad luck. I am recommending it because of the experience I had before the shaft loosened, and expectation that the replacement will provide better results. If I had one gripe, it would be that the on/off switch is a little difficult to turn "on", but perhaps that's the intended design to avoid accidental engagement and potential injury.

The only complaint I have about this tool, and it's a big one, is that the tool depth adjustment tends to slip no matter how tight it is. I was making a minor cut and I noticed that the depth of cut changed from 1/8" deep to 5/16" deep. Luckily it didn't damage my part since I was making several passes to get it to a final depth. I had to frequently check for slippage and readjust the depth back to 1/8" which made the project take about 3 times as long. I do not recommend this product.
