The aim of this site is to provide you with the very best Wood Router reviews, comparisons, buying guides and advice on all the major router manufacturers including Bosch, Dewalt, Milwaukee and Porter Cable Routers.
We carefully select and then thoroughly review the routers that are the best in their class and look at the features that make the difference between a router that’s just OK, and one that stands out from the crowd.
In our reviews we identify the features that you should be looking for and then explain what this means in use. We also have a selection of useful and informative articles and videos on how to use a wood router.
In today’s market quality and features are always improving and most products are good enough, so we look for innovative features that give one model the edge over another, and help to make your projects easier to do, and, more importantly, easier to do well.
Our advice and recommendations are based on more than 25 years experience of using all manner of hand and power tools, and we have particular experience of routers and everything router related, such as dovetail jigs and router tables. We know what to look for and we recognize it when we see it.
As with most things in life, you get what you pay for, and this is particularly true with power tools. A lot of professionals and woodworking experts would agree with the following principle:
If you can afford the best, buy it; and if you can’t, buy the best you can afford.
