Comment:Great little router combo and easy to use. Item was shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. I have used it twice and have no complaints. The base plate definitely needs some sort of centering device to center once removed .I ended up buying the DNP617. I also purchased the dust extractor fittings and they do work but a bit clumsy . I will have to get a better setup for the dust extracting hose. In short 611PK fits my requirements for a simple to use light duty router.

Good compact router
Comment:I am very happy with the performance and features of router. The motor runs quiet and plunge base operates/adjust smoothly. Disappointing that kit does not include either straight edge guide or circular sub-base which limits functionality.

Better than I expected
Comment:Great small router w-fixed base and plunge base, two LED lights, variable speed, soft start, smooth action plunge. I also purchased the DNP618 edge guide. The description said it would fit the fixed base only. WRONG It fits both the fixed base and plunge base. There is also one set of holes in the plunge base that accepts my Porter Cable edge guide rods, along with another set of holes going all the way through the base for the micro adjustable base (Dewalt). It is also not as loud as my other router and it doesn't kick like others. With the edge guide on the fixed base, the motor will tilt toward the edge guide. To help this from tilting not as much remove the clear "D" base plate from the fixed base and turn it 180 degrees and reattach. all the holes still match and there is also holes to attach the edge guide with the new base location.

So far, so good
Comment:My wife and I freehand route signs, lots of signs. My wife usually hates anything new. She loves this combo kit, so do I. We paid less for this kit than we paid for just the router at another site. I have 3 other routers about this size and been in the cabinet since purchasing this one.

Comment:I needed a router to work with an elliptical jig. The router that the jig was set up for, while powerful enough, was just too cumbersome and difficult to adjust. The DeWalt DWP611, while light and compact, provides plenty of power and the plunge base makes it easy to adjust the depth of cut. This tool was worth every penny and will see a lot of use in the shop.

Comment:I did my research and this DeWalt 611 is the top rated compact/trim router. The problem was that most local stores did not have this combo with both bases. Well, here it is and at a great price. Performs very well and is surprisingly quiet. Depth and speed adjustments are simple and love the clear base for seeing what I'm doing. Price around all you want but this was the best deal especially with free shipping.
