Auto-locking Plunge LeverAuto-locking Plunge Lever

AUTO-LOCK is temporarily disengaged whilst the lever is held in this position, and router can plunge. When the lever is released, the plunge position will be locked. Perfect for fast repositioning and surface registration when used with a jig.

Auto-lock is turned off, allowing the user to control the plunge position. Perfect for accurate repositioning and depth post setting.

Re-engages auto-lock and returns the lever to the resting position. The plunge lever self-tightens, so vibration caused by heavy loads will not affect the accuracy of the depth setting.

ANTI-RESTART PROTECTION prevents the router from unexpected start-up if the trigger lock-on switch is engaged, and the power supply is turned on or temporarily interrupted & restored.

In this event, the trigger lock-on switch must be disengaged before the router can restart.

TWIN, FLICKER-FREE LEDS improve safety and accuracy in low-light situations where work lighting is poor or the use of a jig is casting shadows.

IMPROVED VISIBILITY allows users to accurately position the cutter prior to engaging the material and making costly errors.

Lights also indicate when power to the tool is ‘live’, which is useful in combination with the Automatic Shut-Off feature.
