Is this in-store only, or were you able to find a Lowes store that can do ship to home? None were available near me and, unfortunately, the only option for delivery is $60 truck delivery. Looks like a good deal for those who are able to buy it.

I checked it online at lowes.com did not go to store.. but it showed a delivery option. Since one was available in store near me so picked one.. i did not see stock of it in many locations near me...

One available near me but had to talk myself out of it. Already have a variable speed Porter Cable (before Porter Cable brand became a joke).

Yes I have this router (Hitachi) mounted to a Jessem lift. Love the variable speed and power. Have never used it with the fixed base. At $70 this is a good buy.

Searching the model # M12VCM yields Fixed Base model elsewhere. Are you sure you are getting a Combo Fixed/Plunge unit? If so that'd be very slick!

Thinking the same. KM12VC appears to be the fix/plunge combo

Tclock, does your router plunge or is it fixed?

Yes it was the fixed base. But I bought it specifically for my router lift so I never used the base. I just use the motor assembly. I have a Makita 3 1/4 hp plunge so never needed the plunge base.

Hmmm don't think it's the combo kit. Would be a nice find. ☹️☹️☹️
