    This compact router is easy to grip and is easy to see what your doing with the clear base and led lights. Also with it being 1 1/4 hp it has enough zip for a lot of jobs.

    Comments about DeWalt Variable Speed Compact Router with LEDs and Plunge Base, 1.25HP, Model DWP611PK :

    I found the slop between the plunge bushings and the tiny rods to be too great, allowing for racking side to side movement of the bit. Probably still better than the Trend plunge.The plunge base is also small making it hard to plunge without tilting.

    Comments about DeWalt Variable Speed Compact Router with LEDs and Plunge Base, 1.25HP, Model DWP611PK :

    Have just used the router two times so far and I am very happy with it's performance. My shop is my garage and it is not heated so during the late fall and early winter I have to wait for warm days to do any meaningful wood work. It is very easy to setup and use. In the process of making an early American chest and making the joints was a easy. I really like this router.
