I own 2 full sized Milwaukee corded routers with a plunge base - they're great. I own Dewalt's corded compact router with a plunge base - it's also great. I recently decided to switch from a drill to a plunge router for "drilling" shelf pin holes in base cabinets. It's not a strenuous cut, so I figured it was time to get a cordless router and eliminate the hassle of dragging the cord around. I got the Milwaukee M18 router and plunge base to match my other battery tools. The router itself seems great, but the plunge base is a huge letdown. The thumb lever is pretty stiff, and must be pressed down way too far to allow a smooth plunge. I have fairly big hands and still can't press it down far enough without moving my hand into an awkward position on the grip. The bigger issue is the lack of precision in the base . . . It wobbles slightly while plunging. The torque required to depress the previously mentioned thumb lever actually forces the router to plunge at a slight angle. That may not matter for a lot of tasks, but my 1/4" pin holes come out larger than 1/4", making them useless for holding a shelf pin. I don't know if I got a lemon or if it's just a bad design, but I'm really disappointed. I love my Milwaukee tools, but I guess I'll have to go back to my little corded Dewalt that makes a perfect hole and doesn't require an awkward hand position to operate the lever.

Gives the M18 Trim router a whole lot more uses
I've been using the M18 trim router for a few weeks on various projects and came across a need for plunge routing, so I ordered this base and when it arrived I was using it in no time. It's very well built, smooth, and has a dust collection attachment that works fairly well with a small vacuum. I do wish the micro adjustment on the router was usable with this base but since I'm not doing any super fine work with hit I can work around that little quirk.

    Clamp broke as I tightened it and this item is supposed to fit the m18 cordless fuel router.

      low quality product
      I am very disappointed with my new milwaukee compact router plunge base. It was broken in first time usage. I am trying to fix plunge base on router with slightly press on quick release lever as it was printed in instruction. But when i press, the lever holder breaks and now this base is totally unusable. I am a milwaukee geek and have more than 30 tools of m18 and m12 series. But this accident is totally blows my thrust to milwaukee as unbreakable and very reliable tools producer.

        Very nice quality, worthy of the brand, but..
        It's a great add-on for my Milwaukee trim-router. It has similar features to the trim-router, with the exception that this allows it to do plunge work. While it is a well made product, my only issue with it, is that the spring mechanism that allows the plunge, can only be done when a lever is depressed. This spring is a little strong, and so to make fine and gentle plunges, it takes a lot of effort. I am sure over time the spring will weaken, but for now, it's difficult to slowly plunge into the wood being routed. I wish there was an override that allowed a plunge and back without having to hold the lever down. Still, like I said, it's well worth it anyway. I'm very happy with my purchase and love it nonetheless the few times I've used it already.
