Never got it plugged in before 1/4 collet broke
Bought it for myself Christmas 2017 at True Value. 1/4 collet broke. Looked up part number (326286-04) and found them at DeWalt for $31 each. Found them on Amazon for $17 each so I bought two. This will be my last router from DeWalt.

I purchased this two weeks ago after my cheap Ryobi broke. It was a gift. I’ve always been a fan of Dewalt. It was easy to set up, the ergonomics are great, and this router makes quick work of any piece. I love it.

Broke it immediately -- fragile threading
Upon opening the box for the first time and putting on a bit, the collet would not go on properly. My approach is gentle. I use a light finger pressure to get the thing going, and only once it has caught do I use a wrench. Apparently the collet jammed, and I thought that was as far as it could go with finger pressure. I noticed something wrong when the bit wanted to fall out. I thought all I needed to do was tighten it a bit more. Which I did. Then I noticed that the collet was not straight. The threading on the shaft was messed up. Now I have to take the thing to a service center to get fixed or replaced, and probably lose hundreds of dollars. I have used a number of machines with collets, and have never had an issue securing them. My cheap Ryobi, which I hate for some very good reasons, has foolproof threading. If you want to take a chance on spending hundreds of dollars at a service center before you get to use your beautiful router for the first time, buy this product.

DW 616 Router
Since my purchase I have had the opportunity to use this product a couple of times. I found it to be more than adequate for most projects. The precise adjustment of depth is very good and easy to do. I like the idea of easy removal of electrical cord. It doesn't get in the way when working on the router and stores easily. Over all I would recommend this for anyone to use. You can't beat Dewalt products

Pros
Easy To Use
Typical Dewalt quality
Came with everything needed to start using except the Owner's Manual was not the original, but a copy with really hard to read print. The Dewalt website has digital copies of all their manuals so it's not too huge of an issue. Other than that the price was good and I look forward to getting a lot of use out of it.

It is not pictured with a cord. Is the power cord included?
GARY R on Jul 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the power cord is included. It detaches easily with a snap lock for break down or setup. Very nice router. I mounted mine on a router table.
Can this be attached to my Craftsman router table?
plowboy on Jan 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we could not guarantee its compatibility. We would recommend contacting Craftsman to confirm. It may b helpful to let them know that the base opening is 6 in. x 6 in.

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 120 days.
