Rated 2 out of 5Â by Dangermouse9000 Distorted & didn't fit router
This base is plastic and had long-range distortion (whole base slightly curved) and short-range distortion (plastic distorted around each mounded hole). Also didn't fit my Makita FCX2301 router (get Makita's guide bushes - they fit tightly into the router with no multibase needed).

Bought 2 No of these Unibase, Returned the first due to rotating captivated nuts, lost one days work!!! Second unit also faulty, usable but the guide bush can not be removed without damaging the Unibase or Guide Bush with more time lost. Lots of money spent on Trend Jigs seems that lots more will be spent to use them. I'll look for alternatives.
I won't be buying any more Trend Products. Pity I'm stuck with the ones I already have!!!

Purchased 2 of these as first one went back with not being able to remove guide bush due to the screws just spinning inside the plastic plate.
Got sent a replacement and the same thing happens the nuts inside the plastic plate just spin won't lock the screws in.
Getting money back as no good very badly designed.
Definitely not recommend unless you get the guide bush fitted and intend to keep it on permanently.

The set comes with two inserts and a blank bush guide so you can centre the base exactly on the router. It was quite fiddly to find matching holes on my Erbauer but after turing the base several times I located three holes which secured the base properly. There are a number of different nuts and bolts supplied to fix the base to the router in the kit but some of the holes in the base only accept a small head size which had short threads and I needed small head size and a longer thread so had to find some of my own. It was not a big issue but if you don't have a selection to hand it could be frustrating. The 30mm guide fitted easily with two screws supplied and together it all worked perfectly well.
