18V ONE+™ Palm Router
18V ONE+™ Palm Router is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 242.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Handy As a palm / trim router this has lots or power, is light weight and easy to use. It doesn't replace a full sized router, however it's so easy and convenient to use, I use it a lot more than my full size corded router. For light trim work with a round over bit, or installing laminate with a flush trim bit, it's size and power make it so easy to use and get professional results. One of my favorite uses is using it to to made dado cuts. Using a straightedge as a guide and flush trim bit it does a great job makes dado cuts in both plywood and hardwood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handy I’ve only used it one day but it looks like a winner. Very good speed and power, the LED light is very effective, plenty of visibility. Depth adjustment seems good and convenient. Not having a cord is a big advantage. Will not replace my old PC corded router and can’t power through lots of wood but for mortising hinges and small jobs it’s so much nicer than a big corded router. Hope it holds up, time will tell. All my other ONE+ tools are doing fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great addition to your Ryobi collection I bought it to make floating shelves with edge finishing with no experience on routers. After couple of online videos I was able to do all edges and track for a smart light included with no issues and very fast. It's a shame the router doesn't come with the edge guide and their call center doesn't hold any in-stock bit I already backordered one and waiting for it to arrive. I hope they can design a base with dust collector and change the design or position for the on/off button since is in a very odd horizontal position and is hard to reach with one hand. Other than that this is a great tool to complement your 18v tool collection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a standard base... I bought this to replace an earlier version I’ve one’d for a number of rears. The old one was hard to adjust up and down: this one totally fixes this, as well as adding an incremental adjustment. However, I took away points because the base has 1-3/8 opening that is too big for any reducer bushing set I can find on internet. I bought this specifically for sign making, but it doesn’t work with lettering stencils without the bushing. I even purchased a “universal” base plate, but the screw holes don’t line up”. If Ryobi would offer an alternative base plate with a 1-3/16 opening, this would definitively warrant a 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cordless Router for beginners and pros I purchased this router to use in my home shop. I build tables and other furniture. I had been looking at a lot of different routers but I love Ryobi tools and have a lot of them so, it only made sense to purchase another Ryobi tool since I had batteries and charger. This Router was only 69 dollars and is built well and works great. I would recommend this router for anyone beginner or pro. Also it has a 3 year warranty so that should give anyone considering purchasing this router peace of mind. Ryobi stands behind their tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small Router This Router was very easy to use and would do as good a job as some very expensive corded routers. Loved using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light weight but packs plenty of power The Ryobi One+ Palm Router (model P601) is my first router. I have used the router to modify some cupboard draws that required a combination of dodo cuts, rabbet cuts and roundover cuts. I found the bits easy to install in the collet and the depth adjustment was simple and precise, while the onboard LED conveniently illuminated the work area. The unit is light weight but packs plenty of power. I used third-party bits as the Ryobi Bit Set does not appear to be available in Canada. I am very happy with the palm router and I continue to tackle more challenging projects around the home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from powerful compact 18v router I bought this several months ago when I needed to do some work further than my extension cord would allow. Very powerful. Simply was using it for some round over work. I wish it come with an edge guide though which was avail on the ridgid. I would get a lot more use out of this router if it did come with a guide.
