Item #
59710

Makita's 1-1/4 HP Compact Router Kit comes armed with a total of four different bases for a full range of precision routing applications. Its motor generates a maximum of 1-1/4 horsepower, with variable speed ranging from 10,000-30,000 RPM. Electronic speed control maintains consistent speed under load, while the soft start feature enables smooth, jolt-free start-ups. The RT0701CX3 is double-insulated with a heavy-duty aluminum motor housing for durability. Its smooth rack-and-pinion fine depth adjustment system and easy-to-read depth scales facilitate precision setups. The quick-release cam lock system provides easy depth adjustments and base removal/installation. Slim, ergonomic, and weighing in at only 3.9 pounds, it's an exceedingly comfortable router to use, and its flat top and shaft lock make bit changes quick and easy. The kit includes three accessory bases on top of the standard base: a plunge base with 0'' to 1-3/8'' of plunge capacity, a tilt base for routing at angles from -30° to 45°, and an offset base for routing in hard-to-reach areas and as close as 3/4'' to a wall. Accepts 1/4'' shank router bits.

I'm looking into buying this router, how is it for making dovetails?
Matt52 on Sep 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I honestly do not know. I bought that router with 2 projects in mind, one with only dovetails. As life goes I've had to put those projects on hold for an extended time. Sorry I cannot answer you question. Good luck !!
