This little trim router with all the included accessories is an excellent addition to my shop. It is powerful enough to handle most small tasks without breaking a sweat. The included plunge base was a bit stiff at the beginning compared to my DeWalt router and others I own but a little bit of lubrication took care of it. The variable speed is very smooth and might come in handy eventually but I have never missed it on my aging Bosch Colt, so it's nice to have but it wouldn't be a deal breaker if it didn't. I do however like the included template guide bushing very much, it makes edge treatment and other operations on curved workpieces a breeze. The power cord could be less stiff and longer and I will probably replace it with a longer 12' cord in the future, no big deal.
Grizzly could improve tracking on shipments to Canada, but the package arrived on time and undamaged at the local Canada Post outlet - so, can't really complain. Customs charges and taxes are calculated at checkout and no additional cost apply which keeps the transaction clear and straight forward.
Oh, and it seems like all the accessories for the Makita trim router also fit on the little Grizzly, mmmh ;-)
My only regret so far is that I should have ordered two instead of one, at this price it makes sense to keep a router set up for a dedicated task.
