          Comments about 1-3/4 HP Fixed-Base Router with Soft Start:

          The description implies it might have a 1/2" collet but none is provided. It would cost another 15 dollars or so to buy one with shipping so if you want a larger collet you might consider a different router. Also this one was pretty scratched up, not the normal like new that cpo usually sells.

                  This is my first router. My expectations were low as I only had one project in mind when I bought this item. It did what it should and I am pleased.

                  New Vs. Reconditioned

                  Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

                  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
                  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the accessories or consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
                  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by CPO’s Money Back Guarantee;
                    New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
