In addition, the motor's soft start decreases start-up torque for maximum control.

    Quick, Secure Base and Bit Changes

    The clear, LEXAN sub-base offers maximum bit visibility and base sturdiness, and it accepts basic template-guide bushings to make application-specific setups easy. Also, a sub-base concentricity gauge is included. If you insert this into the collet prior to bit installation, it will help you center the sub-base relative to bit place when making your cut line off of the side of the base.

    Additionally, the sub-base and other included bases are designed to make both base and bit changes easy. Quick-release motor latches enable fast and easy motor-pack elimination, while a spindle-lock button enables single-wrench bit changes. The fixed base likewise uses a flat top, so the router can be set upside down for easy bit and depth changes. In addition, long, self-releasing, eight-slotted collets offer enhanced bit retention and avoid bits from jamming.

    Constructed for Consistency and Durability

    Routing applications produce a great deal of dust, which can lead to additional wear and tear on electronic parts. That's why this system includes a dust-sealed switch that safeguards against dust consumption for longer tool life. Other parts that add to the tool's general consistency and sturdiness consist of durable metal housings, precision-machined brass bushings, and case-hardened steel guide rods on the plunge base.

    Comfortable Operation with Integrated Dust Control

    Each base includes comfy rubber over-molded manages and a low center of gravity for enhanced balance and control and minimized user tiredness. The base likewise has a patented through-the-column dust-collection system. This allows a vacuum to be attached to the router without blocking your line of vision.

    In addition, this router kit uses you the capability to deal with the switch and cordset on either your left or ideal side. Also contributing to this setup's usability is a removable cordset that can be quickly serviced.
