I carve wood signs. This router, after being modified with handles and opening the back up to let in more light and to let the chips go backwark instead into my face, is the perfect router for this purpose. The led lights give plenty of light to see the lines to be carved. \n\n\n\nAs far as for the Factory Outlet store goes, they are excellent. I had my router in two days from the time I made the order. Great service.
