This new compact router from Porter-Cable offers the comfortable ergonomics of a trim router with the power and features of its full-sized brethren. 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. Clear sub-base for optimum visibility.

This is a nice small router...
This is a nice small router with plenty of power for normal jobs. It's well built, very easy to setup and accurate. I like the soft start feature and fact that its not too loud when running. It feels a little top heavy with the small standard round sub-base so I added the optional D shaped sub-base to correct this tendency. I'm also successfully using this router in a small shop built router table.

What materials does this router have capabilities for?
moon n on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've used mine mostly in guitar building, works great on all the hardwoods (mahogany, Oregon myrtle, ebony, rosewood) and spruces I deal with, also in plywood, MDF and strandboard which I use in making jigs. Very accurate slotting used with good bits. I make deeper slots in multiple passes, but it certainly has all the power I need for my uses. Oh, and I also it in the inexpensive router table that Rockler sells, works fine in that application.
