A great router kit, well built and with almost all accessories you'd ever need... unless you need so
Some of you might be thinking "5 Stars, isn't that just some form of confirmation bias?" but the truth is, for what this kit can do, the accessories included, and the price charged, I really can't fault this router!
Ok, I reviewed the full-sized Bosch GOF-1600CE router, and that is still going strong. However, I decided to get a smaller router for smaller jobs, and so my better half can build her picture frames without stealing mine. I have to say, I'm quite impressed with this little unit. I've owned this unit for about a mo...nth now, and trimmed a variety of materials from softwoods, hardwoods, and plastics. However, I do recommend that you take it slowly with the harder woods. A comparison of this kit overall, with other routers in Australia: Some routers, like my previously reviewed Bosch, just came in a cardboard box with the plunge base, and a vacuum attachment. When buying my Bosch 240V model in Australia, the complete kit just wasn't available. So I had to buy a fixed base, a router guide, and a few other pieces separately which added another 50% to the cost. Not so with this DeWalt kit.
Questions & Answers
I have just had a retailer say that they are getting "a lot" of the DeWalt D26204K-XE coming back with burned out brushes or "melt down" in some way or other. Is this proving to be a general observation?
I'm sorry I didn't see your message sooner. Don't know what happened there. I've put a few "miles" on this thing and it's still going strong. Perhaps there was a bad batch? Admittedly, my partner isn't the biggest or heaviest user of it, and I often use my other routers. But if that happens, I'll update my review with my findings.
Hi there, great review.
I've been searching the net to find the diameter of the motor on the Dewalt D26204K but i can't find it anywhere!
I have a Rockler lift plate that I need a motor for.
Would you be able to let me know the diameter of the motor on your D26204K?
