      Not a typo, it was in the store; and unlike HD they even have price tags to advertise their sales.

      You can buy it online and then pick it up in the store if you want too; but I just went to the store and got it this morning w/o doing the online thing first.

        Better hurry if you want one. According to the link, it's a done deal at the website but maybe not in the stores if they still have inventory.

          My dear wife picked it up for me while I was at work tonight.

          And leave it to her to get an extra $10.00
          off with some sort of coupon to boot ....$89.00 !

          It even comes with an edge guide!

          Swore years ago to never buy another Craftsman power tool....

          Go's to show, never say never...

              This looks to be the edge guide for it.

              I have one of these on one of my older craftsman routers, works great on my fixed base.
              It won't work on the plunge base.

              that fits the router.

                  The D handle provides a little better control of the router especially at start up if the router doesn't have a soft start feature.

                    The one advantage I see to it in this kit is that you get a finger trigger instead of a toggle. On the 1hp craftsman router I've been using the trigger is on the base handles. I actually think that base feels better than this fixed base. I actually like the feel of that router; even though it is 20 years old it has some nice features: worklight, and the handle mounted trigger. For me, the advantages of the new one to me is plunging, 1/2 bits, vacuum ports, and more power..
