Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy and Capable I love this little router! It has been capable of producing any edge-profiling job that I've thrown at it. Actually, it hasn't bogged down during any of it's duties in my shop. I love the soft start and it's easy to make small or large adjustments. Changing the bit is a breeze as well but what sets this router apart from others is its ease of use. It's lightweight and fits my hand well and the clear base with the LED makes it so easy to use I find myself routing things that I never would have taken the time to in the past. I have three other routers of various sizes from other manufacturers and they've been collecting dust ever since I brought this home over 3 years ago. January 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quality for the Price I have only been using this tool for about two weeks now...but that being said, I have been very impressed with the power & lightweight nature of this compact router. I think that so far, it has been more than worth the money. It is easy to hold, adjust the depth, and change the bits, etc. I have been very surprised by the power this small router has. I hope it keeps up the good work, and I am looking forward to using it for a long time to come in the future. January 1, 2014

Answer: 
No, RIDGID dos not offer a plunge base or an adaptor that provides that feature for the R2401 trim router. That would be a feature commonly associated with full size routers.

Answer: 
The R2401 is designed as a trim router. It does not have the same design parameters as a full size router, which commonly uses larger various profile/shaped bits for the shaping of wood.

Will this trim router cut long grooves and dados?
I purchased this router and it came with one collet wrench. Should it come with two?
Is this router a 1 1/2 HP router?
