1-1/4 HP Compact Router Kit with 3-Bases is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17.

I really liked the compact size, the feel, and the smoothness of the spindle motor. The attachments are really cool as well. The downside, the offset base. While this is a cool feature I found a manufacturing defect. The cogged pulley that screws down onto the spindle nose was machined to deep. This caused the pulley to tighten down and hit the spindle housing. I still need to call Makita for a fix, I had a washer that I used to space the cog pulley out for a temporary fix. However, the offset base really helped me out.

Does jobs full size routers are too big to do just remember it does not have the power of a full size router but it does have a fair amount of power for it's size. Have not had it that long but so far I am very happy with this kit and will be using it for many things. If it lasts as long as my other makita tools this will be a home run. I gave it four stars because I have not had it that long.

I actually purchased this to do a bit of cabinet work and it is fantastic. I opted for kit over just the router as I thought the value of the kit was worth the price. The unit has performed flawlessly and I have already completed my first project. The unit seems very powerful for such a small size. I could definitely see a router table in my future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money Except for the zipper being broken on the case, the router and bases with other attachments will probably work fine. I really haven't done but two projects but it works fine.
