I got it yesterday. Hooked it up to my CT22 today and used a flush trim bit to edge mdf on my torsion box build. All I can say is WOW. Last time I used a router on MDF I was covered in dust. I didn't see dust anywhere.

I was kinda going back and forth in my mind bewteen  a PC, Dewalt and OF1400 because of the price but then I remembered I had already invested in dust collection and after that it was a no brainer.

CT22, TS55, Kapex, RO150, Domino, RS 2 E

It is so easy to control  and so smooth compared to any other that I have used.

I was a bit disappointed that I could not use the dust collection hood that goes under the base, when routing an inside corner. Seems like a lot of dust is created right there around the bit, but it gets in the way when turning an inside corner.
