Soft-starting, 12-amp motor featuring full-time electronic feedback that maintains motor speed through the toughest applications. Variable speed control feature (10,000 - 23,000 RPM) enables bit speed to be optimized for changing applications. Motor transitions quickly between fixed base (included), plunge base (included), and traditional spiral down bases (690 series). Height adjuster 75301 kit (included) allows for motor release, bit height adjustment and motor clamping from above the table (fixed base only). Dual-position switch allows user to cut power while maintaining control of the router. Durable latch lever enables quick and simple coarse depth adjustments and motor release for transition between bases. Rack and pinion adjustment provides fine depth settings to 1/128 in. (fixed base only). Spindle lock system disables switch when engaged for router bit changes. Plunge base features machined brass bushings and steel guide rods for a smooth, free-flowing plunge stroke. Plunge base offers through-the-column dust collection for efficient dust removal and improved bit and cut-line visibility. 6-position adjustable turret enables stepped or repeated plunge cuts. Clear Lexan sub-base provides improved durability and bit visibility. Sub-base centering gauge ensures router bit concentricity. Flat side on plunge base allows user to work in tighter spaces and provides a straight reference point. Overmolded rubber handles provide a comfortable and secure grip.
