The colt router need little that would change the basic form. It is well received and I think most guys still find it one of their favorites. It’s the accessories that most have issue with. I bought the plunge base for the colt and LOVE it. Makes a great high quality base. They need to do the same for a small fixed base.
The other things I want are somewhat cosmetic, and I think could be easily done. Especially the LED and small fixed base with DC. The swivel cord would need a retooling on the housing, but worth it IMO.
the thing about the dewalt trim router which is the exact same as the porter cable, doesnt exactly feel like a trim router. is much bigger than the colt but the same power i believe.. ill stick with the colt or upgrade to a festool
Does the fixed base have a micro adjuster? I own the Makita compact router and this is my only complaint with it…It really should be easier to change the depth in small increments. It has a buckle like latch (it appears that the Colt is the same) that you open and then slide the motor up or down in the base. It’s a gross adjustment at best.
