What are the necessary attachments (part numbers to order) for a 1" OD template guide to be fitted to it? Many of the Makita plates/guides do not come out and say what models they fit, bolt patterns. etc. Need clear information. Thanks.

3-1/4 HP Plunge Router with Variable Speed is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.

I can't rate this router just yet because I havent used it. I was disappointed in that the owners manual , collet wrench and 1/4 collet were not in the package. I am in contact with Makita , hoping they will ship we these missing parts at no cost. This is frustrating in that most of my router bits are 1/4 shank. I am waiting for a response from Makita.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A well performing router I really like this router for its soft start, smooth plunge action, and good ergonomics. Cuts very nicely. I also purchased the dust collection attachment and together with my shop vac, captures virtually all of the dust. It would be nice if it also included the collet adapter, which I also had to purchase separately.

The only thing I was disappointed with was the plastic handle provided to make the adjustments on the micro scale. Expected better. Overall a great router, highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router I have the router mounted in a table and use it to make raised panel doors. It is smooth and strong and leaves a great surface when used with sharp bits. Two passes on a raised panel leaves me a clean edge. The variable speed is great and the router is a lot quieter than my 1 1/2 hp router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big improvement from my 13/4 hp. was nervous that there wouldn't be much of a difference in power between this and my milwaukee 1 3/4 hp router. this router is a huge upgrade. never bogs down, is quiet and comfortable. if your router seems underpowered this will do the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Router, but not as pictured. This is a top notch router. However, be warned that the straight edge guide as shown in the picture is not included in the box. The manual does not identify it as an optional accessory like other accessories. Seems a bit misleading...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing!!!! What can I say? This makita router is powerfull and well built. I believe that it may have been the most expensive they offer. A bit pricey, but as the old expression goes "you get what you pay for". Well worth every dollar!
