Thread: I thought it would be bigger

    I thought it would be bigger

    Well my new hitachi 2-1/4 hp router finally arrived by fedex yesterday evening. Didn't even get a knock on the door. For some reason it took 2 and a half months and numerous phone calls the past week and a half to get them to process my rebate. If I go and check my claim number it still says it is being processed.

    Enough ranting. The router sure looks nice and is very quiet. Honestly I thought it would be a bit larger but hey the price was right. FREE!

    I'm not complaining Dan, its just that the pictures that I see of it on different websites it actually looks larger. When I opened the box, that was the first words out of my mouth " I thought it would be bigger".
