Rated 4 out of 5 by from DIY Router Having purchased other McAlister tools from Screwfix, I had no hesitation in buying this router. I have had no issues setting the tool up, the provided guidebook is straight forward and takes you through it step by step. Having only used the tool once, it does exactly what I need it to do as a DIYer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for DIY I am sure that more expensive models come with more features but for the jobs I needed this for it was perfect. Definitely would recommend for general DIY jobs. Can’t comment yet on reliability as only had it 3 days but it’s definitely solidly built.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap for a reason First of all, this is one of the cheapest routers and I did not expect the performance of a higher priced model. I have only used it on one job and my feelings are as follows: I should have taken notice of the comments about the plunge mechanism being stiff and jerky - it is and it is difficult to set the depth of cut you need. The cutter came out of the collet once and gouged a chunk out of the work piece. The plastic vacuum attachment came loose during a cut and was chewed up by the cutter. I would take it back but I have used it and have a damaged vacuum attachment so it is not in a saleable condition. As my wife keeps telling me, buy cheap, buy twice.

We have a contradiction of Screwfix staff answers. Are the 2 collects that come with the Router 1/4 and 3/8 or 1/4 and 8mm.

Asked by: Peter8SCL
Hello Peter8SCL, I can confirm the 2 collects supplied are 1/4 and 8mm. Thank you for using Screwfix Q&A. A.K.C.

Can it actually take 1/2 inch bits?

In the spec it says the max collet size is 1/2 inches but I don't think the opening is big enough for that size bit. Do I need an adapter to use 1/2 inch bits or is the spec on the website wrong? If I need an adapter, do you stock it?
Asked by: JEvawin
Hello, According to the manufacturers instruction manual this router can take (6.35 mm) 1/4’’/ 8mm collets. Unfortunately it does not mention anything about 1/2" collets being usable in this machine. I have alerted the relevant department for them to verify the website specifications and change them as it does not appear as if this item does take 1/2" collets. Thank you for using Q&A. [DG]
