This compact, lightweight router with variable speed control offers the comfortable ergonomics of a trim router and the power and features of its full-sized cousins. LED lighting in base with clear sub-base for optimum visibility. With 1-1/4 hp, it's perfect for a variety of tasks, from trimming laminate, cutting flutes, edge profiling and even mortising with the plunge base (sold separately). The all-metal motor can is designed to stand up to jobsite abuse, and the motor features soft-start and electronic speed control to maintain its speed under loads. An intuitive depth adjustment ring, quick-release tabs and an adjustable clamp make adjustments a snap. The 1/4" collet is extra-long for better contact with the bit, and the spindle lock features a large button and 12 detentes for easy bit changes.

DeWalt DWP611 Compact Router, Fixed Base
I actually bought this router to use on a portable table because of it's light weight and compact size. I didn't realize how extremely convenient the fine adjustment collar would be for making height adjustments in the blind so to speak. Very handy and very powerful.

DeWalt DWP611 Compact Router
Needed a smaller frame router for a project and this was just perfect. Didn't opt for the plunge version as I couldn't see ever using it. Great little router!!

This was an upgrade router for me and I am loving it. I've had no problems or issues with it. I love that I can adjust the night very easily.

We make hand carved wood signs...
We make hand carved wood signs with this router. Excellent router. Bought another to keep from having to change bits. Will probably buy a third. First...it is quiet. Don't need earplugs with this router. Second... easier to control those fine line cuts we make with sign lettering. Third... precise control of the router bit depth is achievable. All routers ought to have this kind of adjustment setup. Fourth... We run these routers for hours on end. They get warm but not hot. Nice. Only con: Needs handles like the big routers. Will probably modify ours with add on handles also, needs a two-inch hole on the backside of the base to allow for chips to escape and let light in on the cutting blade.

Hand Router
This particular model has great power and cuts right through the wood as if it were the larger table mounted models. The only Con for me was not expecting the power cord to feel as if it weighed almost as much as the router while operating. It took a few operations to anticipate how the weight of the cord would effect its stability as compared with the larger routers.

I actually didn't set out to buy this Compact Router, but it came as a bonus gift with the purchase of the Dewalt 735 planer. I am very glad it did. This is a very sweet small compact router with plenty of power, yet lightweight and easy to adjust and handle. Only regret is that the router didn't come with a plunge base which is available if you buy the router separately, but I have yet to find where you can buy just the plunge base.

What is the length of bit adjustment - i.e. how deep?

Can you use guide bushinges with this router?
Mike T on Jan 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: NO, It does not accommodate templet guide bushings. I went to Rockler looking for a small palm router to do template guided work. The sales guy tried to steer me towards the DeWalt, good tool but not for what I needed. I ended up with the Makita which DOES accommodate PC guide bushings. Plus for about ten bucks more than this router you get a cool little plunge base too!
Can anyone tell me if I can use DeWalt DWP611 Compact Router, Fixed Base for my router table to make small box joints?

what size base does the dwp611 router have?
Dave A. s on Jun 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Base is shaped like an elongated "D". 4 1/16" x 4 7/8"
what size bits will work for this? I see 1/2" and 1/4" shank bits and I don't know what ones to buy.
