MT Stringer The little DeWalt combo is a handy little router to have. I use it a lot for dadoes, round-overs, flush trimming, and anything else that comes along. I also use it with the MLCS templates for sign making. Note that I had to drill two holes for their base to attach but that was no big deal.

For those that aren't familiar with this combo, here are a few of my pictures of it in action.

Edit: FYI, the dust port is an accessory you can purchase separately. Note that the Bosch VAC005 hose fits it perfectly.

Duane Bledsoe Get one! I paid $168 on Amazon for mine. At $149 I almost wish I needed another one just so I could get in on that sale.

4DThinker I was looking for a 1.25hp router like the 611. I need 3 all the same for my current project. Noticed that Makita makes a great 1.25hp trimmer for $99. Then I saw a Performax 1.25hp trimmer at Menards for $69. Variable speed, LED light, Speed sensing, and accessories. The Performax looks exactly like the Makita which gets good reviews around the web. They must come off the same factory line. Then I saw an MLCS router of the exact same design only at 1hp for $69.

I've got 3 of the Performax from menards coming. Half the price of the Dewalt, although not coming with the plunge base. I'll let you know if they are junk.

gjackson52 Not a bad price, it is current at $169 at Amazon. I just checked out of curiosity.

DeWalt Compact Router kit on sale


I just got a mailer from Rockler. They have the DeWalt Compact Router combo kit on sale for $149. I think that is what I paid for mine a year or so ago.

The sale is part of their "Garage Sale" event.
