The extra-large locking clips allow for quick motor release and coarse depth adjustment, while the attached depth ring enables accurate bit height adjustments. On-off controls are located front and center for easy access, and the spindle lock lets you change bits with a single-wrench. Features a built-in LED light and clear sub-base for maximum visibility. 1/4'' collet.

Quiet Trim router, with a fixable flaw
There are a lot of bad reviews for this router, which are warranted . But there is a fix! If when locking the base, you hear a 'cracking' sound... STOP! If you don't the base will break in half. There is a set screw under the clamp lever, back it off until you can clamp the base without the awful cracking sound. This router is quiet and very, very easy to adjust the depth. I only wish it was variable speed (for my use case).

an excellent trim router- I have 4 of them
Bill D on Jun 26, 2015
I have a number of large 3 hp routers, Porter Cable, Hatachi, Dewalt. I am looking for a much smaller & lighter unit, WITH A SMALL DIAMETER BASE, for hand held operations like corner beading edges & plunge routing SOSS hinges where the face frames are already assembled. I don't work with laminates, but the trim routers seem much smaller & suitable for small hand held applications. Need high quality, reliable, easily adjustable, user friendly model. What manufacturer & model do you recommend? Thank you for your advice. Al

BEST ANSWER: I have a Dewalt multi base set in 1Hp that shines in the applications you mentioned. It does very well in plunge mortising as well as small profiles with the fixed base. The Bosch Colt multi base set is very good as well. I also have another Dewalt trim size that does very good lighter work, and a couple of Makita trim routers that I like very much. The one to leave alone is the Porter Cable trim router. Porter Cable makes wonderful larger routers, but the base on their trim router is notorious for not staying square with the work. It’s just not a reliable design.

Does this DeWalt DWE6000 Laminate Trimmer/Palm Router have a plunge router base available as an accessory? Thank you. Is there another small reliable router with the Plunge Option? Thank you. Average Joe..d

BEST ANSWER: This is a Laminate Trim Router, it is designed for trimming laminate. It has a fixed speed of 31,000rpm, which is generally too fast for general routing. I am not aware of ANY Laminate Trim Router with a plunge base accessory. You should consider the DWP611 router which is slightly larger, more powerful, has variable speed, soft start and available with the plunge base.
