Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product. Bought this router to rebate the hinges and latches on several new oak doors. Bought a set of Trend router bits (also from Screwfix) to accompany the Makita. Delighted with the product, oozes quality, slightly expensive, but a quality product that should give years of service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine I am not a carpenter, but have 12 oak doors to fit, so decided to buy this router. It is excellent for doing the rebates for hinges and door catches, and so much more accurate than using a wood chisel. Just bear in mind that there are no cutters included so I bought an Erbauer 12.7 x 19mm which works well with this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed and well made I've had this router for 11 months now and it has seen regular use on a variety of hardwood and softwood furniture building projects. It's a solid, well-designed and well-made bit of kit. It's handled edge-routing, trimming, dadoes, rabbets and pattern cutting without missing a beat. It's a shame that it doesn't come with a case but that's not enough for me to mark it down. You can buy a plunge base separately so I'm currently considering doing that rather than buying a plunge router.

Does this come with any attachments or do these all need to be purchased separately?

Asked by: Gavlah
Model RT0700CX4/2 is supplied complete with Trimmer Base only. Makita model RT0700CX2 is supplied complete with Tilt Base & Plunge Base. Both models come complete with straight guide, trimmer guide, template guide & collet cone.

Accuracy of base plate.

From the pictures on the site and in the manual the base looks circular, unlike the Bosch palm router which is rectangular. Can you confirm this is the case? Is the circularity accurate and is there any play between the base and the 4 screws that hold it in place? I need to run it around the inside of a template and if the base is circular it will need to follow the template accurately, whatever the orientation of the router. Are spare bases available? Hope that makes sense and thanks.
