Jobsite Tough

The no-nonsense DeWalt router combo kit switches between fixed and plunge bases via a clamp, with no tools necessary. Intuitive and tough, the plunge base descends smoothly when rounding over deck rails. For more precise work, a micro-adjusting knob sets depth in increments of 1/64-inch. A detachable power cord helps the tool store easily in its case, and eliminating the often-strained permanent cord connection makes the tool more resistant to damage.

2¼ hp, 8 pounds (fixed), 9 pounds (plunge), about $230, Dewalt
