Product Details

The exceptionally precise, compact router is designed for hand held use yet is equally at home mounted in a router table. The main body and base of the router are CNC machined from aluminium die castings. The plunge mechanism is smooth and controlled to allow for precise positioning and plunging of the cutter. The 710 watt high torque motor generates an impressive output of 580 watt and features variable speed control from 13,000 to 33,000rpm. The higher speed ranges allow you to route using small diameter cutters, whilst the slower speed ranges allow for the use of larger diameter cutters. The two main handles have a rubberised soft grip. On the base of the router is an anti friction, non marring plastic sub base to ensure a smooth sliding movement over the workpiece. A three turret depth stop allows you to precisely control plunge depths and there is a simple and efficient base lock system. The main body of the router can be removed from the plunge base and fitted to the optional trimmer base when ultra precise one handed control is required. Supplied with 1/4" and 3/8" collets, adjustable side fence and a spare set of motor brushes.

The round base is made from a machined aluminium die casting and has an internal thread that accepts the motor, giving you an even more compact router that can be used with either one or two hands. On the bottom of the base is an anti friction, non marring 75mm diameter plastic sub base to ensure a smooth sliding movement over the workpiece. One of the advantages of the round base is that you can see the cutting line. This design allows you to have precise control for trimming, edging and fine detail routing.

The premium performance router bit set is supplied in a wooden presentation box and contains 18 of the most popular router bit profiles mounted on CNC machined 1/4" shanks. The set contains straight, dovetail, core box, flush trim, chamfer, V groove, cove, roman ogee, rounding over and sign making bits, many of which feature bearings for fine edge routing. This is an excellent multi-profile router bit set designed for fine routing of hardwoods, softwood, composite materials such as MDF and chipboard. Recommended by Rutlands for discerning home woodworkers, fine cabinetmakers, joiners and kitchen fitters.

Richard Austin

Excellent value when bought as a kit. I wanted it as a second router, I have a big SiP plunge router, to fit on a table. I found the round trimming base fits nicely in my table and makes adjustment really easy - undo a catch, wind a knob, lock catch. Changing bits is simple as well by removing the motor which literally takes a few seconds. Build quality is excellent and far exceeds what I expected for the price. Well spent £65 or so.

Adrian Barascu

Excellent value for the money.
Bought it with the fixed round router base.
Have both RT0700 and 3709/3710 from Makita. This is on par with the RT0700, and way above 3709 in build quality.
Quite and powerful for it's size, nice feeling when working with it. The plunge base works ok, some burrs on the parallel fence, fixed in 1 minute with a file.
If you could bring metric collets it would be perfect. I am using the ones that came with the makita. :)
Would recommend to anybody searching for a router of this size.

Mr Vernon Jones

I have been looking for a compact router for some time as a addition to my old Elu. I was looking at the Makita RO700 and I am sure this is the same router. The castings appear identical apart from the branding and the motor casing has the same shape and air vents. Anyway I took the plunge (ha ha) and purchased this router last week. The general design and manufacturing quality is excellent, the motor is very smooth when running though the speeds and the plunge is controlled with minimal side play. I have routed some through dovetails and added a beading to piece of 7/8" wide oak and it has been easy to hold and manoeuvre with one hand. Make sure you press hard on the plunge lock lever other wise it can creep back up. Fantastic buy and well recommended.

P Hardy

Very well balanced router that is easy to control with one hand. Used it to make a sign with the Milescraft Sign Pro kit and it worked a treat. Great little router with a lot of power and precision.

James R

I have a very large Makita 1/2" router that is quite difficult to control when edging due to its size and weight. This compact router is excellent at edging as you can clearly see the cutting line and due to its narrow body you can use with one hand. The build quality is far greater than I expected and is made mainly from aluminium die castings. So far the power of the motor has been sufficient for my work and the control dials and on off switch are easily reached with your fingers whilst still gripping the body. This is a quality router that I can would recommend for edge routing and fine detail work. Five out of five so far.

David Sharples

I have used one of the straight bits and the chamfering bit both on tulip wood. Very pleased with the finish and the smoothness of cut. Neither cuts required any additional finish work. What was interesting is that there was no build up of swarf in the flutes. I don't know if this is because they are new bits or whether its down to design. Either way I am very happy with my purchase. Quality set of bits.

Adrian Barascu

Good router base.
Very useful because it's round and you can follow some templates wit it.
There is no thread on inside, as in description.
The router slides in and locks after setting the depth with the toothed wheel provided.
It's exactly the same system as on the Makita rt0700, 3709 and 3710 wich I own and tried with it.
Good value for the price. Highly recomended.
