Customer Questions & Answers

does a router need a base?

Asked by: jakers
Yes this compact router requires a base. All routers used in the upright position require a base plate. A custom home made plastic tear drop shape base plate with 1 knob can be easily made for comfort. Larger stronger routers are mounted under a router table upside down without a base plate.

Does this come with a case or bag?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Chief117
My compact router all alone came with the edge guide, 2 wrenches & manual. All securely packed in a cardboard box with a 1 year warranty. I purchased the 2 year protection plan for $12 more. My hardware store customer service said they will remove the black tube shaped security device from the power cord if you ask them.

Can this router be used on a router table?

Asked by: Richard
No. It is a compact router. Use it properly within its limitations and it will last many years. There are many inexpensive tougher 1/2" shank routers designed for router table use.

1-1/4 HP Compact Router is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 45.

The 2 wrench design is a very nice feature in addition to the spindle lock. I unpacked read the instructions and tested the variable speed dial and the motor and it runs very smooth and quiet with no router bit installed. The router body and grip is very comfortable and not too large to hold safely. The included straight guide is a great bonus and fits securely. I will order the dust guard and other accessories over time. I really like the Makita base diameter and optional accessories that can be used with it. The warranty is 1 year. I chose to add the 2 year home depot protection plan for another $12 and have the router brand and design I chose for my individual needs. After hours of reading recommended router bit speed charts and reading product reviews I wanted the best compact routing experience. I chose to return a single speed 7 amp 27000 rpm compact router with soft start and electronic feedback sealed in its box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Quality Tool Fits very well in hand no bad vibrations sand paper is easy to install and doesn't ride around. Quite powerful for a small sander Not as loud other sanders used in the past. dust control seems pretty good also. Happy with the purchase only used a few times so far. Have always had good luck with Makita.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
