Amazing Router
I use this little router almost daily and it never lets me down. It has a huge amount of power but is small enough to handle easily . Highly recommend this company and their products.

Woodworking Experience:
This router is excellent and features...
This router is excellent and features variable speed and electric cruise control. The low stance provides good control, and the handles are the best I have used. Just the right size and shape, it makes you want to pick this one up - even when you have other routers to choose from. I have had it over two years, and performed inlays, cut dovetails, hinge mortises, chamfers etc. I can say the accuracy of this machine is first-rate.Consider buying the two-base kit. The plunge base is also excellent with a very smooth plunge action.

Do know the dimensions for the router? OD and length?

BEST ANSWER: When you say "O.D" I'll assume you're talking about when the fixed base is off. I measured 3 1/2" diameter. And 2 3/4" in Length, I bought this router because of its name, and it was heavy duty. I use mine in my Shark CNC. I hope I have been of some help to you.
