DeWALT DW616 Fixed Base Wood Router

This is a heavy, stable, and powerful router from DeWALT. The DW616 is very powerful and it’s a piece of cake to cut through even cross-grain portions. The starting torque is difficult to control due to the position of the router switch. Because the switch is in a bad place for this router, we needed to take our hand off the grip to turn it on and off.

Overall, in terms of power, it’s exceptional, and you can make it to do anything you need it to do. Changing from base to base on this one is harder than the Bosch, but after a while, you get used to it. It has excellent overall versatility.

The only bad thing is that it has a small power cord, so you’re going to need an extension cord if your outlet is far away.
