      This Palm Router Delivers Accurate Cuts

      The Craftsman professional fixed base palm router has 1.25 HP and a 6.5 amp permanently lubricated ball bearing motor with variable speed from 18,000 to 28,000 RPM so it cuts smooth and easy through soft woods, hard woods, veneers and plastics, alike. A spindle lock is located in the front of the router makes it easy to remove bits and collets with a single wrench, while equipped with soft start technology, it works to prevent router take-offs with every job.

      Featuring clear sub-bases, combined with the built-in dual LED lights, this professional grade router enhances user visibility for dependable accuracy. The large oval base makes it convenient to transform from a palm router to full size while the built in steel rack and pinion delivers fast, accurate adjustments in 1/16 inch increments.

      Good little router
      Bought this to use on signs that I carve. It's mostly used with a profile bit. A 1/4" bit which fits fine. Not sure what others are complaining about. The one thing that I don't like is there is very little exhaust space for the dust. A little hard to see intricate carving when you're getting blinded and choked out. I could wear glasses and mask but the dust covers the carving. I plan on cutting a slot big enough to fit a small vacuum hose to suck out the dust. Kind of like my other routers with a vacuum connections. The two handles work good and comfortable. For what I do it does the job and has decent price.

      Craftsman Professional Palm Router
      I had to return this along with the bits because the router wouldn't accept the 1/4inch shanks. The router is advertised as being able to take 1/4inch shanks, but the store manager couldn't get the bits to go in the router either.

      GREAT tool for the money

      I have owned a number of these palm routers and found this one to stand up there with all the others I have owned (Most have been big brand name units). This unit is very fairly priced for the unit you get.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Too bulky; adjustments to balky

      Spent a lot of time researching different offerings of compact/palm/trim routers and ultimately went with the Craftsman in large part because of points. Compared to other brands' offerings, the Craftsman was way too heavy and significantly bigger -- it felt way too close to my plunge router. Also didn't like the adjustment ****; fine adjustments weren't accurate enough. So back it went and I picked up an orange version instead.

      Nice little router

      I haven't had too much of an opportunity to use this yet, but it seems like a solid tool. I like the extra base which gives you a much better way to hold the tool for when you are doing a more involved project. This seems well reviewed on other sites as well.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
