one!, I have THREE, one on each of my 1/2" routers. It's a case of "what you've never had you never miss" BUT, believe me, once you have used one you won't ever consider using a router without one

Harry, have you used it for larger bits like 3"? I've read horor stories of people who have had bad vibration problems and have even had the fly apart while using then... It makes me nervous

I use a Musclechuck on my Dewalt router and love it. Changing bits has never been easier and I've no problems with vibrations. I think you'll find it is a very well made product.

I've got one on each of my two routers (DW618 and a Triton TRA001) and won't ever use a router without one again. Never had any vibration problems, but I don't use a lot of large diameter panel/shaping bits.

I agree with Harry's recommendation on another thread to buy a 4mm t-handle, ball-end hex wrench. It makes operating the MuscleChuck easy-peasy.
