have run the router with a roundover with a querk[1mm step each end off the curve]
it worked faultlessly
decided today to go for 7mmx5.5mm rebate with a newish 2ah battery and it worked well on a 18" x12" on 3 sides
on the third corner where the load is more than doubled it "overloaded" for about 2 mins
now off course you can lightly rout out the corners where the load is 2 or three times as much to negate the load
it cut very clean did not "chatter " or give uneven surface at all as you would think a slow revolving cutter may do
but worked very well
would i chose it as my rebate router perhaps not as i have several 18v routers but as a hinge or other light routing its great :lol:

Are you sure about the hinge jig use? If it slows down under load that might be a problem for anyone routing a hinge recess in stringy Far Eastern hardwood (as found on a typical fire door lipping) as it could result in a rough edge - and unlike edge profiling sanding is not an option. A couple of other questions you don't answer B-A: what does it do when the battery is discharged? Does it self-protect by turning off and does it stay locked-off until the user goes through a restart procedure? Also what is the dust extraction like?

no extraction possible
no way off attaching collets
cutter offset from central position making start/finish points awkward requiring working to a mark rather than by feel
the thing that really sold it to me was the narrow base allowing cutting into tighter spaces for adapting refurbing rather than from new
i said the battery cut out for about 2 mins in hind site it was probably near 20-30 seconds
i wouldnt even think off using it on less than a 4amp battery unless the battery size was a problem but there again i already have a choice so only pick it up for confined areas rather than the go too tool
as for flat battery procedure i tend to put them on charge when below half but will carry on using it with the same 2ah battery for a full cycle and see what happens but on such a high draw tool would expect that to be about 8-10 more metres off the same rebate size :lol:
