Reconditioned Unit was a Great Deal Your Rating: 5 stars Perfect. It doesn't get any better Pros: Easy To Store Easy To Use Good Grip Good Safety Features Powerful Cons: No Dust Collector Hoods Best Uses: In The Workshop Describe Yourself: Beginner got the Skil 2-1/4 HP Combo Base Router Kit w/ Soft Start as a Reconditioned Unit thru CPO. delivery was on time. price savings was about a garfield bill!! unit came in great shape - but obviously used due to sawdust in the unit. this is my first time using a router - and it was easy to use. love the 2 led lights that keep your cutting edge lit! the soft start feature built in was a true plus so the starting torque didn't take the unit away from you. for the price to have both a fixed base and a plunge base router all in 1 unit with a carring bag that will hold it all plus a small assortment of router bits - it is great. the Skil 2-1/4 HP Combo Base Router Kit w/ Soft Start easily accommodates 1/2" router bits and with the 1/4" collect adapter - you can use the smaller ones too! grip with the rubber coated handles was great. Only downside here was the dust collector hoods are not included and only available thru the manufacturer for $45 (ras131 & ras132). looking forward to many years of use on home woodworking projects with the Skil 2-1/4 HP Combo Base Router Kit w/ Soft Start!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
