I received it yesterday and after unpacking it I was very excited to give it a try, I attached the offset base and a few test passes on a peice of plywood, then did the job I bought it for. Flawless and easy.
After that I was eager to play with the other bases and a variety of by bits. About 5 hours strait of routing later, I had a feel for the tool and I was impressed. I pushed the tool pretty much to its limit and while this has far less power then my full sized routers, its very impressive for a laminate trimmer, I can easily see using this with the plunge base on a lot of projects i would normally dig my full sized router out for.
On the standard trimmer base, I really like the worm gear depth adjustment, super easy and I had no problem getting accurate depths.
The angle base is pretty strait forward. I do wish the angle gauge was large and easier to read with more detailed increments, this is only a minor complaint.
The offset base, which I originally bought this for, works exactly as it should. I do wish you could adjust depth on it, but i am not sure anyone makes an offset base where this is possible, so I wont hold it against Makita.Read more ›

As an occasional hobbyist woodworker but a semi-compulsive tool collector, the lack of a router was holding up progress on an important project around my new rental. Read morePublished on August 2, 2013 by John Friedlander
this little router is a kick in the butt, cuts really well, great lines, just remember to use quality bits, makes the work less of a issue with clean cutsPublished on June 9, 2013 by Gary Cushman
