Excellent tool for DIY, it does everything I ask of it. Plenty power for all routing work, and I think the soft start is a good feature.

As a keen D.I.Y''er I have collected a lot of tools over the years, many of them Silverline. To-date I have never had a problem with any of them. So there was no hesitation in purchasing the 1500W Plunge Router. I have used it on practical jobs and some experimental tests and found it perfect in every way. This is an excellent piece of kit, extremely versatile and well made and have no hesitation in recommending it to both D.I.Y. enthusiasts and professionals alike.

I was apprehensive about buying this tool as I didn''t believe it could be any good for such a low price. How wrong I was ! This is a great tool with accessories and once set up it performed the job of cutting down a kitchen worktop with no trouble at all. The dust extractor was coupled to my "George" vacuum and saved covering everything in wood dust. I particularly liked the stepped turret to control the depth cuts, a nice touch. My only criticism was the instructions were a bit light when it came to using the attachments. A Youtube video on using this router and attachments would be a great help for "newbie" users.

After many years with my old router it "gave up the ghost". I must have looked at hundreds of routers to replace it before deciding to choose SILVERLINE 1500W 1/2" and I have not been disappointed, it also takes four bit sizes, 1/4", 1/2", 8mm, 12mm. All aspects of the router are excellent from the feel quality, performance, accuracy, extras, a real quality product.

Habe mir die Oberfräse von Silverline im Netz gekauft. Absolut tolles Gerät, Sanftanlauf, Robuster Anschlagwinkel, 4 verschiedene Spannzangen. Die Maschine wäre auch, aufgrund der Leistungsklasse sehr gut geeignet für Unterbau, leider ist der Schalter aber nicht einrastend. Abhilfe kann aber ein einfacher Kabelbinder schaffen, in Verbindung mit einem Netzverteiler mit Schalter, der dann mit dem Fuß schaltbar wäre. Auch die mitgelieferten Ersatzkohlen sprechen für das Produkt. Würde ich mir sofort wieder kaufen. Übrigens: Garantieerweiterung über das Netz ist super ( auf 3 Jahre)

This is the first time I have bought and used a router, don''t know why I didn''t buy one years ago, this Silverline Router is absolutely perfect for my needs and is so versatile and the price is brilliant, cannot wait to buy myself a router table and start to make so many different things with this router. I would highly recommend this Silverline 1500W 1/2" Plunge Router to anybody.

Why would you purchase the same tool at least twice the price or more when here is the tool you need, and from a company that is interested in the goods it makes and sells.

Sturdily built router well up to any DIY job. As a result quite a heavy beast so perhaps not the best choice for delicate work.

Unbeatable at the price. A 1/2" 1500w router with 4 collets and a very sturdy guide -- it''s a no-brainer really. ( this is the second one I''ve bought, as the first one has done so well and still going strong ).

The router is brilliant. Can''t fault it in any way at all. I''ve used loads of routers before but the silverline router is the best yet, thankyou

Needed a new router to use installing a new kitchen for my son, this machine fitted my requirements, worked perfectly and deffinately made the job easier. I now have another top tool for my workshop.

no nonsense worked perfectly with the silverline work top jig 10 out of 10

Have used it several times so far & works very well-powerful enough for 1/2" cutter in worktops- However found I had to really tighten up the clamp screw on the plunge setting adjuster more than seemed sensible to stop hand pressure making it slip-also find it awkward to set the plunge depth as there doesn''t seem to be any markings to work to other than the fine adjustment screw.

Got to say a very good product. Handles well and got some good weight. Only thing is would be good to have some instructions for fitting the attachment.

As far as the router goes it performs well and will do what it''s supposed to do. The guide bush I feel is not really of any importance at all. However I do have a set of guide bushes so may be biased. As far as the tool is concerned I''m very happy with it. However what I''m not happy with is the lack of answers to my queries from Silverline. I have twice emailed them for information and on both occasions never had the courtesy of a reply. If it hadn''t been for a very good offer I would not have purchased my Silverline planer. I sincerely hope that they will improve their respect for customers who have purchased their equipment. I would recommend the router and some of the other products from Silverline, I have several.

No real problems with the product. It represents good value. The only problem I had was with the lack of responses to two emails sent asking for a minor help with fitting one part. In fact neither technical support or sales replied to my request. this has left a very bad taste in my mouth. I have since purchased a bench planer but only because it was an excellent offer and made financial sense but I came close to buying another make.

Not the most expensive router out there and slightly heavy, but, did my kitchen worktops and internal doors (oak) without struggling once. A purchase I would make again.

It has done all I have asked of it. For the handyman I would recommend it. Light work and heavy work has been accomplished with satisfaction. I still have more jobs for it in my house renovation. 😀

Overall, it is a well made budget tool, and it has to be recognised that it is a fraction of the cost of both the professional equivalent, as indeed many of it''s direct competitors. The fault I found was that when plunged, the pillars permitted the router to descend unevenly, thus allowing the cutting head to move laterally. The movement was perhaps little more than 1-2mm, but that makes the tool unsuitable for precision work, and more especially for work with precision jigs. I am sure this matter can be addressed at the manufacturing level. That done, it would be an excellent tool, and exceptional value for money

I bought the router to use with the 30mm guide bush to mitre some worktops. The bush slipped out of the jig and damaged the jig and worktop. Upon investigation it was found the base plate had warped and the bush was left with 2mm of protrusion,very poorly made. The seller accepted to have it returned but in the end I made my own guide bushes to make it work.
