What a wonderful little router. I haven’t tried it on harder woods but it has handled everything I’ve tried quite well. I’ve really enjoyed the plunge router attachment. Having a small router that is so easy to set up makes my life easier because it’s so easy to just grab it and use it.

These are super little routers, I have two of them. This is my go to router for running dados in case work. They are light weight and have plenty of power for the smaller bits. With a decent quality bit you can run a 3/4" dado in 3/4" plywood on one pass. They are also great for mortising and freehand work because they are super controllable.

Makita baby router
This little sucker is the cats meow !!!! The size makes it easy to control and it has plenty of power. Sometimes you may have to rout two or three passes on deeper cuts but who cares cause its easy to work with its size .I am totally impressed and the price made it a no brainer.

Great compact router, good power for it's size.
Needed a plunge router for doing mortises. Had my eye on this thing for a while, a friend of mine had one that he uses to mill out lower receivers, and figured that if it will mill aluminum, a little red oak won't hurt it. Received the router and I discovered that the edge guide that comes with is only for the fixed base. I found out that the DEWALT DW6913 Router Edge Guide will fit with the plunge base. With the router, plunge base, up-cut straight bit, and edge guide, my mortises turned out OK. If I made a jig I could have done them with more precision. Have also used with smaller round over bits, and a chamfer bit.
