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

    It's a decent router and soft start is nice. However, there is way too much play in the height adjustment gears. Can't get an accurate height adjustment without it changing on you. Returned for refund.

          New Vs. Reconditioned

          What's the difference between New and Factory-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 consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
          • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
