Edge guide available and cost ?

Asked by: Lucas
Edge guides are available as an accessory. I do not know the cost as I never use one. I use a router table and fence as an edge guide.

3-1/4 HP Plunge Router with Variable Speed is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3 1/2 power router or 3 1/4 power router ? Looking for others sellers, seems to be that this router is only 3 1/4 power router. How knows ?
Date published: 2017-06-20
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 Great router but I am completely baffled that not one of the reviews I read on this router makes ... Great router but I am completely baffled that not one of the reviews I read on this router makes no mention that it DOES NOT come with a carry case. It's not mentioned in the specs either. Close to 3 1/2 Benjamins and no case. I just stared at the open box for several seconds upon discovering this. I'm weird I guess, but I figured I would at least mention that. Other than that, very beefy and excellent quality tool.

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...
Date published: 2014-12-04
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 4 out of 5 by from good router Powerful, sturdy. I love his trigger in the handle, also has a led light to see what you're doing with detail. At least mine is made in Japan.

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!
