had it several months now withe the small base its easy to use one handed 'adjustment a dawdle
loosen the clamp turn the ring until you zero the cutter then turn the depth marker ring to zero
to adjust the depth you simply loosen the clamp turn the depth ring from 0-6 left or right [raise or lower]

now here is the clever part the maximum you are supposed to cut in one pass is half the shaft so by rotating it exactly 1/4 a turn you get your 3.175mm depth change as there's a small blank at the back that equates to the odd .35mmx2 so its marked in mm but a full rotation off the ring gives you 12.7mm depth or half inch very nice touch with this base only being around 325 grams it makes it light and easy to use at a combined 2kg where as with the plunge base its 3kg

with the plunge on it acts like any other router with a lever allowing the plunge action to work with springs couteracting the weight
unlike any other router i have used you push the lever to adjust the depth and let it go its locked and will hold that poition 'i suspect this will do for most routing applications but for heavy applications you can push it to a locked position
changing from one mode to the other takes seconds although if you want full depth off plunge you have to unwind the depth ring and take it off but that's only about 8 turns
the base works with fences bushes and guides like any other router but also has a higher position to allow with an adapter you can buy to be used with the dewalt track system

the router is extremely well built the action is very smooth
the variable speed stays constant under load
my only concern is because it has a rocker switch with a sturdy neopreen cover the switch cannot be easily felt to click on or off so if you don't check and its half and half it may bounce on when you put it down now this is only theoretical as it hasn't happened in all the months i have used it and probably never will :lol:
