Around my shop, if there is edge routing to be done, I reach for a trim router. The tool’s smaller size fits comfortably in your hand and turns most tasks into a one-hand operation. This frees your off hand to hold and turn the project. That saves time as you work and increases your productivity.

To be of value, a router has to have the right features to get the job done. Ridgid’s R2401 trim router has everything needed to be a “go-to” router in the shop, starting with a 5.5 amp variable-speed motor that can power through most routing jobs. (Variable-speed settings are from 20,000 to 30,000 rpm and are adjusted with a quick turn of a dial located front and center on the motor housing.)
