    At this price I think it might be time for me to take the plunge

    I've got one of these, it goes alright. Something snapped off inside it at some point and rattles around but doesn't seem to affect performance.

    Probably price match mitre 10 and Amazon Bosch router . Which one is better ? Bosch seems to come with some free attachments

      It looks like Ryobi are just shy guys. If you check their manual, the router comes pretty much with the same attachments as Bosch one. But, to me, Ryobi looks way sturdier. Bosch reviews look pretty crap too.

    Great price, I have the Ryobi battery powered one, and it runs pretty well - haven't had too many issues with not having enough power for what I use it for. That said, I was lucky to inherit a bit box of very good router bits from my grandfather, which might make all the difference.

    Ahhh bought this at 149 a few months ago!!!

    •  

      Is it better to buy a new one and return it with the old receipt, or to claim price protection through my Coles CC?

      •  

        Have you kept the original packaging? They can pull up the date purchased with the barcode. Ask me how i know this..

        you'll find most CC price protections policies, cover 60 days max. Most only 30 days.

        •  

          Oh dear, they scanned the package you returned and said it doesn't line up with the barcode on the receipt?

  •  

    How can we find the actual price from Bunnings website?
    Cause I am looking for some other Ryobi products and I am not sure, if they are on sales.

    It's a good price for this particular one. I picked one up from Fyshwick ACT yesterday.

    Too good a deal to go past as I seek to commence a routing element of my woodworking and renovations. Thanks, OP!

    So far I've only pulled it out of the box to work out what goes there etc.

    I also have a home-bran trim router that I bought two months ago on clearance from TotalTools.

    From eBay I've bought an aluminium router plate with inserts that I'll fit into one of the five metal legged school desks that I've picked up from local dump recycling. These desks work well as saw-horses and worktops for woodworking, as their surfaces are all the same height. I'll also buy a $20 lab lift on eBay for easy and precise adjustment of the router bit height in the table.

    One question I have re this Ryobi: it appears there is no way to lock the power on? Anyone found a way. I'm quite surprised by this. I suspect it means that I therefore cant find an easy way to use this - the more powerful of my two routers - on the router table. Surely that's not the case?
