Great tool

I purchased this specifically to do some sign routing it works excellent. Nice bases and case also the on and off switch is very easy to reach and it has variable speed. Comes in nice case. Could not be happier. It is worth the price. Factory outlet delivered on time no issues.

Best Router I have ever owned.

I have owned many different brands of routers in my time of woodworking and i have to say this is the lightest and most powerful router i have ever had. I have recommended router set to many of my frieda and family. They have all be very happy with it and would get more products from DeWalt in the future.

DW618B3 Heavy Duty Router Kit

Have not had the chance to use it but from checking it out for adjustments and operation it appears solid. The instructions are clear and easy, the packaging is great, as well as, the price. I will definitely buy again from this place.

Great price on this router combo

If you're looking at this router combo you know what you're looking for. It's the item you want and now you just want the best deal from a Factory Authorized Dealer so you can buy with confidence. You can price away to your heart's content but you won't find a better price on this DeWALT Heavy-Duty 2-1/4 HP (maximum motor HP) Three Base Router Kit. Comes in a rather large hard case, was shipped promptly and arrived in perfect condition and working order. It's not just about price though. DeWalt routers receive top reviews by owners. THAT'S WHAT COUNTS. And did I mention free shipping?
