I bought a D4 years ago. Like everyone says it’s a demanding tool to learn to use. I found that the demand for accuracy is demanding. I had trouble with the torque of the router bit causing the wood to shift. I solved it with adhesive sand paper on any surface that held the wood in place.

I’ve decided the next time I pull it out for a project I’m going to buy a 2nd router for through dovetails. One for a straight bit and the other for the dovetail bit. Changing bits for the pins and tails left me to open for errors.
