SO FAR, SO FANTASTIC!
So far, so FANTASTIC!
Plenty of power, smooth action on plunge base (the reasons I bought this Makita set). I’ve always admired Makita products, both corded and cordless. This router set is NO EXCEPTION !
If you need a great router combo at a great price, GET THIS SET !

Only used once but love the power and ease of use. Wish there was a clear router plate that will take a bushing. The one supplied does not take guide bushings. Cant see well with the standard plate.
