Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good. It's a 'blue' Makita in a red shirt ;) Simple but solid. No real complaints at this price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as expected Had this a year now and while it’s great for running chamfers, that’s all it’s good for. Unit is very noisy and overpowered, the start up creates a kickback and feels uncomfortable when plunging. It’s base plate doesn’t like rough timber and if you take your eye of the tail, it’s tends to drift away from the fence clamped to the workpiece. The plunge isn’t smooth and I feel that by not having a trigger stay the right hand tends to not press as hard as the left owing to one finger holding the trigger. The fence provided is cheap and has to be set up with a set square, it’s also very short. It’s perfect for nogging and anything other than fine detail except chamfering and that’s only because of the bit bearing.

Need help on accessories

Recently purchased this but the 1/4" collet it came with fits none of my router pieces . Is there a larger colett available to fit this model? Like an 8mm, Google isn't giving me much help.
Asked by: MemateDave

Can any one confirm 1.) the plunge has a lock lever 2.) The diameter of the base plate ( i need it to be 155 mm maximum) 3.) if the trigger can be locked "On" i need this for a router table
