The unit is small and great for the small carving work we do. I was using a dremel and it was laboring to do the work.

Great little router
What a great palm router kit! I was at first shocked at how large the box was when it arrived. the nylon case is quite large, but houses all accessories neatly. The power is much better than other palm routers i've used, and the depth adjustment is smooth and precise. I have yet to use all of the accessories, but they appear well made and better quality than expected.

Exceeded expectations!
Router and accessories are intelligently designed and well constructed. After several weeks of rigorous use, I've had no issues. CPO's website was easy to use and product was delivered just 2 days after placing the order.

Can I get it to be powered from a 110v power supply (yellow plug) accessible to British safety standards?
Gavin on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This router indicates it is 120V. If the power outlet is truly 110V it will
operate correctly. I'm unfamiliar with the "yellow plug" you describe, but
British Standard BS 1363 is 220 - 240V and will burn up the motor. You
would need a transformer to convert to 110 - 120V if you are using standard
British power outlet. I have a great deal of experience with international
power formats. If you can identify the Yellow outlet you are describing, I
may be able to assist further. you can use the following site to help with
Otherwise, I would place a multi-meter on the outlet and verify the voltage.

Is this 60hertz router? What country manufacturer?
wilfredo on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's 60 hertz, all the parts are manufactured throughout the Orient and
probably assembled in Japan.
Will these attachments fit my 18v router that looks just like it or is there an option to just buy the accessories ?
William R on Dec 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Because most if not all of the attachments fit onto the base of the router compare each units base plate for attachment features and options.

Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase.
