Product Details

This 1/2" router has been specifically designed for both freehand use and for mounting in a router table. The router features a micro-fine height adjuster handle which allows you to adjust and precision set the cutter height with ease, when upright or inverted in a table. It is also excellent for fine height adjustment when working with dovetail jigs. One full revolution of the micro-fine adjuster handle raises or lowers the cutter height by 1mm and three position turret depth stop allows for precise repetitive routing depths.

The powerful 2200 watt motor features variable speed control from 9000 to 22000rpm and has constant speed under load ensuring a fine finish to the workpiece on hardwoods, softwoods and composite woods. The motor has in built soft start to eliminate sudden movement of the router on start up. A spindle lock combined with a hex collet nut results in fast and easy bit changes.

The base of the router is fitted with a phenolic glide plate measuring 160mm in diameter which ensures excellent stability and smooth passage in free hand mode and features a wide 65mm aperture for accepting large cutters when in table mode. The phenolic plate can be removed from the base to reveal locating holes for mounting to a router table insert plate. Industry standard guide bushes are accommodated for via two easy to access set screws. The all steel side fence also features an adjustment knob that allows for micro-adjustment to set the routing width.

Weighing 5.8kg the router has two large ergonomic handles combined with a conveniently positioned on/off switch which make this a very comfortable router to operate. The router is supplied with a 35mm diameter dust port, 1/2" collet, 3/8" and 1/4" collet sleeves, collet spanner, adjustable steel side fence, 16mm guide bush, 12.7mm TCT router bit, clear bit guard and a bearing edge guide. This is a powerful 1/2" collet router designed for both freehand and table use that has the advantage of a micro-fine height adjuster which ensures fast and precise routing. Highly recommended.

Blimey! I have to say I was shocked at the quality of this router for the price! Very solid tool, weighty and of really good build quality. Its bigger than it appears in the photos. I bought it for my router table which currently has a Trend T-Tech Router 2200 Watt motor fitted but without the fine adjust. I have to recommend this tool and well done Rutlands!

James Tickhill

Love the fine height adjustment handle as it makes setting the bit depth so fast and simple. It's bigger than it looks in the photograph which isn't a problem as the motor is very smooth. I had bought it for mounting in my router table however I may now buy a second one for free hand routing. Nice little touch is that it comes with a spare set of carbon brushes. 10 out of 10 for the price.

Trevor Garcia

Really really good router for less than £100. Rutlands have really excelled with this, as soon as it is out of the box you can feel the quality, the power it generates is also very good. It is comparable to another well known brand of router that I own but almost a quarter of the price. The steel fence will come in useful and looks to be well made.

Robert Caruthers

I bought this router to use specifically in my router table. What drew me to this router was the fine height adjustment handle. My router table is a floor standing unit with open sides so with this router i can easily access the handle to control the cutting depth of the bit. I previously compromised with my old Elu 177 router which meant unbolting and setting up when moving from table to hand use. Now this new router is permanently mounted in the table. I have used the router once so far with a raised field bit and it performed very well. Its a big router so you need to use all three holes in the base to ensure it is held firmly. I'm knocking one star off as Rutlands don't yet offer additional longer screws for the table. My table has a 5mm thick plate and the screws that come with the router only have 10mm of thread. They have worked so far but i'm going to get some longer ones as soon as RutlandS gets stock. Overall great value router and lovely fine height control.
