Does everyone's carbide compact router do this?

There is vertical travel in the Shaft/Collet when applying +Z pressure upwards while holding the collet nut.


If I had to guess I’d say your bearings/router is toast.



I have a DeWalt 611 on my XXL. Absolutely does not do this.

The router has less than 10hours of run time on it. And it doesn’t effect cuts as it takes a decent amount of pressure to cause the upward movement…

Please contact us about this at and we’ll investigate this with you.

My suspicion is the bearings aren’t fully in place, but that’s just a guess.

As a follow-up this wasn’t normal and Carbide support sent over a new CCR while I was on vacation that does not travel +Z when messing with the collet nut… :clap:
