All research prior to purchasing states that "ALL" craftsman routers come with 1/4 and 1/2 collet. NOT this one. The operators manual will tell you to purchase 1/2" but when you call parts they will tell you that it is not available for this model
I bought this to make frames for my wife’s art. With the bits I bought it works great.
I use it with my router table and it works great. The depth adjustment and dust collection is wonderful.
i was a little annoyed when the package arrived. the box that it came in was in terrible condition . it was in the original craftsman box and had been taped up everywhere. my first impression was that it was a return item to sears. upon opening the package everything appeared to be in order except for the vacuum attachment was not in the box. it was supposedly to be included. router seems to be in new condition and works as it should. except for the missing vacuum attachment, very pleased.
I bought this a month ago and the router turns on but never reaches full speed. I've contacted Sears 2 times about trying to resolve the situation and they have not responded. Hoping I can eventually get one replaced that works.
