SKIL’s $129 plunge and fixed-base router combo has a built-in LCD display for RPM suggestions

Amazon offers the SKIL 14A Plunge/Fixed Base Router Kit for $129 shipped. This is down from $149 and represents the lowest price we’ve tracked so far in 2022. This router features a 2.5 HP motor that runs at 14 A for let you easily handle almost any project on your horizon. On the top there is an LCD screen that allows you to select bit type and material for a suggested speed and the motor holds its rpm while cutting to ensure a consistent finish. In addition to this, there is a live tool indicator that lights up when the router is connected to power to let you know that pressing the power button will cause it to turn on. Moreover, the soft start also makes it safer to use. Keep reading to learn more.

You can use some of your savings from today’s main offer to buy a few router bits to have on hand once your new kit arrives. This set has 12 bits and comes to $19 on Amazon, which skates for less than what you’ll save above. In the kit, you’ll find rounding, straight, dovetail, chamfer and more available to get you started as soon as it arrives.

It never fails that when I’m working on a project in the store, I need a knife, a pair of pliers, scissors or something else. The best way to handle this is to have a multi-tool on your belt. Right now you will find that Leatherman’s Wave Plus has fallen to a new low of $70, down from its normal rate of $110. I wear a Leatherman every day and love it, so now is a great time for you to buy one too.
