    Dead on arrival

    I received the router motor today. I plugged it in and it spun up for maybe a 1/2 second and that was it. It won't turn on or spin any more. I tried varying the speed etc. but nothing seems to work. I called Woodcraft and the girl on the phone was very nice. She is going to check with the techs on Monday (its Friday after hours) and see if this is unusual. If it is, she will ask them to test one and send it out (she will keep me informed via email). They are sending me a label to return this one. I will try to update this review when the dust settles.

    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.
