Editor's Review: Tool Test: Trim Routers

by Gregory Paolini

review date: June 2, 2011

I tested this router with two bases. One held it vertically, but in that configuration, the bit is completely hidden by the base and it was not easy to hold in one hand. Those are serious problems for a furniture maker. The second base holds it horizontally, which turned it into the best tool I have ever used for trimming edgebanding flush.
