Compact Hand Routers for Sale

Routers often are used for cutting and shaping decorative pieces, making frame and panel doors, and milling moldings. Routers have spindles that spin variously shaped, small-diameter cutting tools at high speeds. The tool is held in a collet chuck and protrudes through a flat, smooth base that slides over the surface of the work. The tool-spindle axis is usually vertical, but it may be tilted. A compact hand router usually has a palm shaped housing for one hand operation. Multiple bases can be used for a wide range of wordworking projects. The spindle is driven by a high-speed motor.1
