Incredible power and precision in a compact body, this 1/4" router has been carefully engineered to provide a high quality and enjoyable routing experience. Open up a world of creative woodworking possibilities, whether trimming, joining, edge profiling or sign making this portable router will tackle all tasks with complete ease. Equally adept as a handheld unit or mounted in a router table, it will quickly become your go-to tool and an invaluable addition to your toolkit.

The included premium performance 18 piece router bit set is supplied in a wooden presentation box and contains 18 of the most popular router bit profiles mounted on CNC machined 1/4" shanks. The set contains straight, dovetail, core box, flush trim, chamfer, V groove, cove, roman ogee, rounding over and sign making bits, many of which feature bearings for fine edge routing. This is an excellent multi-profile router bit set designed for fine routing of hardwoods, softwoods and composite materials such as MDF and chipboard.

The tough main body and router base are CNC machined from strong aluminium die castings, offering superior rigidity and strength to withstand the most demanding of tasks. This aluminium construction also offers a lighter weight with the entire unit weighing under 3 kg for more comfortable use and more precise control when routing by hand. The two large handles on the base feature a soft rubberised grip, ergonomically designed for comfort and control. On the base of the router is an anti-friction, non-marring plastic sub base to ensure a smooth sliding movement over the workpiece.

Enjoy an effortlessly smooth plunge mechanism, giving you complete control during plunge cuts or whilst setting the height of your router bit. A three turret depth stop allows you to precisely control plunge depths and the base features a simple to use locking system when the height needs to be fixed. The main body of the router can be removed from the plunge base and fitted to a range of optional bases further increasing the flexibility of the tool. The optional trimmer base (R5004)offers ultra-precise one handed control, perfect for edging work, whilst the offset base (R5005) allows you to get in closer to edges and tight corners with increased stability.

The powerful 710W high torque motor generates an impressive output of 580W allowing you to tackle the toughest of hardwoods with confidence. Featuring a variable speed control dial, the motor speed can be adjusted from 13,000 to 33,000 rpm, allowing you to select the speed most suitable for the diameter of your router bit. Higher speeds are recommended for smaller diameter bits, whilst the slower speed ranges allow for the use of larger diameter bits. Engineered with soft start technology, once powered on the motor will slowly increase in speed to the speed set by the user, eliminating dangerous kick back potentially leading to injury. This precision router has also been designed for quiet and vibration free operation further enhancing the safety and comfort of the user.

The kit comes supplied with 1/4" and 3/8" collets, compatible with 1/4" or 3/8" diameter shank bits. Dust collection is handled with the included dust nozzle which fastens securely to the base, collecting dust at the source, close to the router bit. This keeps the working area clean, maintaining the quality of your cuts for the best possible results. Also included is an adjustable side fence to guide the router parallel to the edge of the work and a spare set of motor brushes. Highly recommended. ©
