Good router For those having trouble with the collet and nut. Please be aware that the collet needs to be snapped into the nut, so that they are 'together' as one unit. If you don't do this, then the cutter and collet will indeed become stuck in the machine. They need to be connected for the nut to release the collet. Usually only one nut is supplied and the two, 1/4 and 1/2" collets. Each time you change collets, you need to click or snap the collet into the retaining nut. Don't do this and you will run into the stuck cutter problem. To remove the cutter, slacken the nut, but keep turning it. It will become tight again. Keep going again with the spanner. It's this second slackening which pulls the collet and the cutter from the machine shaft. This is not a fault with the machine, but a common mistake made by people new to these types of routers. 15 Jul 2015
great router Great piece of kit as you would expect from this brand! 4 Jul 2015
Works well. Poor collet Was satisfied with the machine,until I switched to the 1/4 inch collet. Had to use a hammer to remove it. I tried again with a brand new router bit,tightening just past hand tight. Exactly the same problem. I am now returning the machine for a replacement. Fingers crossed 29 Jun 2015
Solid Kit I've only been using the router for a couple of days, so my reliability rating is purely arbitrary, but first impressions are of a good, solid machine that feels like it will be a durable addition to the tool kit. I found the router powerful and easy to manoeuver. The guide fence was rock solid and very stable in use. Having both 1/4 & 1/2 collets is a bonus for obvious reasons. Incidentally, I had no problems with the collet nut as had by an earlier reviewer. An earlier problem now fixed?? However, I can only comment on my own experience. All in all, I'd recommend it to anyone. 30 Nov 2014
