Woodworking with Professional-Quality Results
Whether you're a novice woodworker or an adept do-it-yourselfer, the Skil 1817 fixed-base router is ideal for cutting basic patterns in wood as well as rounding and forming edges. The tool's fixed-base design enables you to set the cut depth before you turn on the tool. A micro-fine depth adjustment allows you to make precise cuts for professional-quality results.

Designed for Comfort and Convenience
The Skil 1817 fixed-base router is built to be easy to operate for extended periods, with a design that doesn't intimidate beginners. Comfortable soft-grip handles reduce fatigue, while an LED SiteLight improves visibility and provides a powered tool alert. A dual-position on/off switch offers greater convenience and control. The router is also equipped with a quick-release lever that makes it easy to adjust or remove the motor.

Less Kickback with Soft Start Technology
Thanks to Skil's signature Soft Start technology, the Skil 1817 fixed-base router starts smoothly and gradually increases in speed, rather than jumping right to top speed like other routers. The result is less kickback, better control, and a longer motor life, allowing you to complete more projects.

The Skil 1817 fixed-base router features a 1/2-inch collect capacity and comes with a 1/4-inch collet adapter for larger profile applications. The tool weighs 7.2 pounds.
