I have this router. had it for a while and got on a price match similar to this price. It's got plenty of power. I use it for doing edge shaping and what not. very easy to handle. edge guide works well. The PR111 is the plunge base but is not really available anywhere as of yet. they are taking a long time to make it available.

In before someone asks a lame question about the WiFi range on this router.

As for woodworking routers, I have the ridgid 18v trim router and have been really impressed with the versatility of cordless, and the power this little router has. Regular price is a little higher, but HD regularly clears out ridgid tools and you may get lucky like I did.

I have been eyeing up and hoping HD would clear it out in the clearance but no luck yet, might end up getting the ryobi since I got the batteries already and a lot of guys seem to like the ryobi one.

Depends how you define that. It's a palm router that can definitely be used for laminates.
Oh I was planning to use for laminate edge banding, does it has a guide?

Also, what's up with cordless routers? Why no one buys them?

The proper way to do this is covered in pages 9-11 of the assembly instructions that come with your counter top.

Awesome, thanks OP!

Also, for anyone using GCR, don't forget to access homedepot.ca through GCR for $2.40 CB. I noticed 1% CB is against original price, not adjusted price, and showed up the next morning in my "Click History". And now I see Ebates.ca also has HD... for some reason that wasn't showing for me yesterday. Ebates.ca shows 2% CB for HD right now, so potentially $4.80 CB...

Thanks for the mini review!

Bosch's website sends me to the likes of https://federatedtool.com/palm-router-p ... 7e70c092a1 for the PR111, but $140+S/H seems high, and is just shy of their $149.99+ for free shipping. Amazon.ca doesn't have it, but Amazon.com does for $99 USD (for who that can make that work). But yeah, seems availability isn't great. May have to call around and see how much local B&M stores can bring it in for...

Tried to contact Home Depot's SMS service to price match.
Unable to price match as the item is out of stock with HD.

I might try to PM at Rona given they have their "We Pay the Taxes for You" event ending today.
If that works, $119.99 would be the final price after taxes but got to run out to a store and test that out.
Not sure if they'll let you PM and take advantage of the event.
