The last router you will buy

"This is my third router. A friend recommended it to me. This will be the last one I purchase.
DEWALT created a smooth operating motor that cuts smoothly without any bind ups or jumping. Very safe to operate and much quieter than my other routers.
My first try proved very successful because of the features of the product. Easy to set and lock, the smooth motor, and the balanced RPM's made my custom baseboard job really easy. You get what you pay for and DEWALT's DW618 is worth every $."
