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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little Router Works well with soft metals. Portable and packs a lot of power for the small hobbies such as milling out a metal gun receiver. The RPMs never fluctuated when under load. The router did get warm as it was under all the work it has done the entire afternoon, and never got hot!! This tool was well worth the money spent!!

Only change I would recommend is to add a push-button gear lock such that bits can be removed with only a single wrench. As designed, it requires a pair of wrenches - kind of a pain! Oh, and it did not come with a case.

The only negitive point was it didnt have the caability to plunge. I had to angle it into the project very slowly until i reached the correct depth. I would highly recommend this router for projects that do not require a plunge router.
