Default Ridgid Router Model # R22002

I am looking to purchase a router that can be mounted to a table and adjust the depth from above the table. I was recently looking at HD and found the Ridgid Model #R22002. It appears that it can be adjusted from above. I am asking for input /reviews of this product. I have several Ridgid tools; table saw, miter saw and several cordless tools. The one thing that has always caught my eye with Ridgid is the lifetime warranty. What are your thoughts?

Greg I don't know if that router will adjust from above the table or not, but if I had to guess I would say no. There is plenty of routers that will adjust from above the table and they have more power. In my opinion this Ridgid router is way under powered for a router table. There is a company called CPO that sells a lot of wood working tools and I have bought a lot from them. Also don't be afraid of their refurbished tools. They sand behind them. Ask me how I know.

Looks like a trim router, but Ridgid says it 2hp. If is true then it might work in router table

Get you a big ole Triton if you're going to mount it and forget it. Bits can be changed from above using their handy dandy little crank up tool.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

This router can be adjusted from the table top. Look closely at the picture on the left you'll see the depth adjuster at the bottom of it the is a hex head adjustment on the other end. As for the Triton, way out of my price point. I just wanted to know if there was anything to be concerned with has anyone ever had a problem with this router?http://m.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-2-HP...2002/202739521

Ridgid's specs say 11 amps so that is roughly equal to the Bosch 1617, Hitachi M12VC, and I think the PC 890. It appears to have a hole through the base directly under the threaded adjustment rod so theoretically it's possible. In the picture it shows a rounded end on the bottom of the rod so it would depend on whether you are able to attach a tool such as allen wrench or (...?..) to the end of it so that you can turn it. If you have the skills you could drill and pin it with a roll pin to a socket in the end of a rod which could be formed into a wrench. Remember that you still need to be able to reach under the table and lock/unlock the router so it can be adjusted.

Just for an example. I have a Hitachi M12V2 which has a rod that extends to the underside of the base (which is the part facing you when mounted). It has a 14mm nut on the end of it so I drilled a hole through my table plate and use a 14mm socket to adjust height on mine.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Chuck,
I want to Thank you for your feedback with the comparisons of other routers, just what I was asking for. The Bosch 1617 to be very popular. To answer your question about the hole in the base, yes there is one. I have attached a pic of the T-handle, the head of the adjusting rod from what I remember when at HD was about 3/16". I do like your idea of a roll pin. Thanks again for your feedback.

Greg I may be mistaken about it being round. The end may be hex shaped which just means that you need a wrench with a socket that size on the end, similar in principle to what I am doing.

I have the Porter Cable 690 and I can unlock and lock the router and adjust the height from the top. The only thing I have to remove the router for besides cleaning the router is change the speed. You can look at table and I have very good dust collection. If I had it to over again I would get the Bosch.

Do they make the 690 in variable speed models? I have two 690's and my only complaint with them is they are only single speed and I can't use them with heavier bits (including longer 3/4" flush trim bits)
