Excellent Value and Performance
So far this Router has been very impressive. Haven't been able to find any flaws. Don't let the price make you skeptical.
Runout not within my tolerance
Bought this to use in a router lift and table. Tried to save a few bucks over the Porter cable router that this model is a knock-off of. The shaft had quite a bit of runout. Way more than I was willing to tolerate. I was willing to exchange it for another one, but my local Woodcraft was unable to get another one in stock in a timely matter (I waited a couple weeks), so I just continue to go without a 3-1/4 HP router for now. I'm not sure I will try another one of these or just go with the porter cable model. We'll see if I hit the lottery or not.
Nice router motor!
My wife got me this router motor for my router table. It is the same diameter at the Porter Cable 7518 so it went right into my Incra Master lift! Out of the box you get both size collets (1/4" & 1/2") two offset wrenches and an extra set of brushes. I had to put it to the test so I made some raised panels out of red oak. The router buzzed right through them. Since then I have used it for various other routing projects and it has worked well. I plan to write another review a few months from now to show how it still works.
