What hp router is best to make cabinet raised doors

I used to use a Ryobi 2.5 hp and it worked fine but if you are concerned go higher hp. It's probably more important that the router is a variable speed model. The bigger the size of cutter required for raised panel doors the more torque and revs are produced. You need to ensure starting on slowest speed and adjust up to speed required. Speed should be based on size of cutter and to me is set by sound( a nice hum, not screaming) and vibration( NO VIBRATION)! The cut needs to be done in several passes, maintaining constant feed speed,( don't burn your expensive cutter) allowing cutter and machine to do work maintaining the hum and no vibration. And of course set your guards etc!! If this is on going work for you perhaps look into a spindle moulder with attachment to take router cutters

My 12 year old plunge router 7529 does not start. It worked just fine a couple of days ago and all then sudden... nothing. Any suggestions!

A 1 year old router...that suddenly stops working. My suspicions would be brushes first then the switch.

There are 3 different types of this router Type 1, 2, and 3.

Parts can be found here:

Brush is item 3 and switch is item 4.

I have a makita rd1101 2.25 hp router it has adjustable speed. the router has been used maybe several times. Just recently while using it the speed will drop down for a few seconds and then rev back up...

Vince, it sounds like you will have to replace your variable speed module. It is item number (5) in the breakdown and runs about 80.00.
The part number is 631397-2.
Click on the Parts Beakdown Icon on the left hand side of the page. I hope this helps, let me know if there is anything else you need.

Rf1101 makita router lost serious power and is sounding wounded

You dont have to take the armature out to look at the commutator, just remove the brushes (unplug tool first) and get a flashlight and look into the brush tube and slowly turn the shaft by hand and look for a discoloration or unusual look on the comm bars. The slight burned smell might have come from the speed control or the switch itself, but look at comm and then go from there. You can get a breakdown for this tool at Let me know if you need any more help
