Answer: 
Yes that is exactly why I bought it. Make sure when you set it up that you mark the holes accurately this is not centered. If you don't do it accurately the hole for the bit will be off from the mounting holes.

Answer: 
No, this router has a plastic base on the bottom so it can slide along the workpiece. If you want to plunge or use an offset base then you can buy the kit with these extra bases included. But this router can be used by itself without buying these other bases.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for light routing work I got this since I don't envision a ton of heavy duty router work in my future. Used it once to rout out a 3/8" rabbet along a piece of fascia. Directions say you should only cut out a certain depth of material at a time, so I did have to make a couple of passes to get to the depth I required. It was easy to handle with one hand, and doesn't take up a lot of space. Not ideal for every routing job, but will work for some basic things. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best tool I have purchased in a long time!! Spend the extra money and get all the attachments. The offset router head is great. You need an allen head wrench for it. An alan had wrench from a garbage disposal works perfectly!!! You'll see what I mean when you use it. September 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita router This is a very easy to use tool had to hag some slab doors for a client worked perfectly I would recommend this tool August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exquisite Tool Bought the other comparable router at the same price point first because it came with the carry bag and had the tempting service agreement. Should have known I was paying for those things because the actual tool quality was pretty run-of-the-mill. I returned it and bought this router. Don't be fooled by the similar reviews when doing your comparisons. This Makita is a fine, meticulously crafted tool with plastic and metal in all the right places. It routes beautifully, is easy to assemble/disassemble for bit and accessory swaps and the bits don't get heat-stuck (as was the case with the other router). Many add-ons are available for this as well for different applications. If a carry bag is a must i'd recommend searching the web and spending the extra $15 or so for a small Makita bag or just use a generic tote. It's worth it. August 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Compact and Powerful I highly recommend this product. Compact, powerful and comfortable for small projects (for example for make soft corners of wood countertop) April 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good unit-nice feel Good unit. Time will tell. Don't bother purchasing the dust collection adapter doesn't work at all February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Bought this to use in a router table I made its perfect for it. Easy to change bits very easy to adjust depth variable speed its perfect for home hobby wood working. February 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a great light weight router This is a great feeling router. It's built really good and very responsive to the feel. July 14, 2015
