This seems to have great reviews. I would love to get into woodworking, but I don't have the room - live in a condo. But I would scoop it up if I had a garage!

Don't know. I have purchased it mainly for small jobs like edge trimming. This is a light weight router. I already have a large router mounted in a router table.


But, I suppose, the plunge base will work for routing out small material, etc. You have to remember that this router will only accept router bits with 1/4" shank.

Yeah, that's why I was thinking the plunge base would be more dangerous then anything. If you won't use the plunge base then maybe the Bosch trim router would be a better option. Especially if you use a coupon from Lowe's. I think I got mine for like $79+tax. It's currently $99.00 so a small filler and $20 off $100 coupon can get you there right now.

Also, this one for $89 before any coupons:

Very well! Just like a regular router though, only take 1/8" deep cuts per pass as any more can cause tearouts or really overwork the bit.

I love my palm router for making dados for shelving systems and for use on rounding over table tops and flush trimming of laminate countertops....also works great for cutting out counters for sinks....sooooo many uses for palm routers.
