Rocky 30 Trim Router with fixed base
- NEW! Video
Works great with most 1/4" shank router bits! This heavy duty, variable speed compact laminate trimmer/palm router has a durable, 2‑1/2" diameter, machined aluminum housing.
The high performance 1‑HP motor speed is adjustable from 10,000 rpm to 30,000 rpm via a speed control dial on the top of the motor housing. Etched into the aluminum housing is a 1" long rule marked in 1/16" and 1mm increments. The double insulated motor features a spindle-locking button to facilitate single wrench bit changes. The metal base uses a rack and pinion system to adjust the height of the motor and a flip lever to lock the motor at the desired height. In addition, a rubber pad partially wraps the base to provide a positive gripping surface when holding the router in your palm. 120 VAC.

Bought this little router because I've been impressed with the whole concept of 1hp routers, I have another brand in my CNC and liked that enough to purchase the same brand for general use rather than having to unmounts one of my two table routers. But I still kept finding myself having to dismount a router because I didn't have a plunge base. When I saw the rocky 30 with the plunge base on sale for less than $100 I decided to give it a try.
I wish this had been my first 1hp router! Solidly built and ALL the accessories, Template guide bushing is a real bonus and the trimmer accessory is like having a pin router or having a bearing on every router bit if desired. A capability to route circles using the edge guide is a nice innovation that didn't cost anybody anything more than thinking to drill one more hole in the guide. Dust collection too.
I can tell already that this little guy will get a lot of use so its a good thing they give you a set of spare carbon brushes.
Oh, by the way the plunge base looks like it will be useful too.

This is a solid little tool. I have 3 other trim routers and this one is just as good as the big name routers and a fraction of the price. Very handy tool, right now I have it set up in the pantograph and I use it to do freehand engraving in wood.
I like the height adjustment as one of the best and easiest to use of all the routers I own. the cam lock is the best that I have seen and really a smooth running motor with lots of power. It is a solid bargain for the price I expect it to last a long time.
