The Makita 3-1/4 HP plunge router with variable speed (RP2301FC) delivers powerful precision with smooth plunge action and superior performance, with added features including variable speed, electronic speed control and an electric brake. The RP2301FC is engineered with 15 AMP power, ease-of-use features, and an increased plunge capacity for a wide range of applications including fine woodworking, cabinetry, windows, doors, and more. The RP2301FC features a 15 AMP motor with variable speed from 9,000 to 22,000 RPM, and electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load. The RP2301FC has a soft start feature for smooth start-ups and an electric brake for increased productivity. It has a 0 In. – 2-3/4 in. plunge depth capacity for easy penetration into the work piece, with linear ball bearings for smooth plunge action. The RP2301FC is engineered with oversized ball bearing construction – as well as a built-in fan with labyrinth construction to minimize dust from entering the tool – for longer tool life. The RP2301FC has ergonomic rubberized handles with a built-in two-finger switch for added control, with a lock-on trigger for continuous operation and built-in twin L.E.D. lights that illuminate the work area for increased visibility. The quick release plunge depth adjustment with micro control and three preset depth stops are engineered for added precision, and the plunge lock lever is conveniently located for efficient operation. The RP2301FC is equipped with a shaft lock for quick and easy bit changes, and the tool-less template guide system provides quick and easy installation and removal. Additional ease-of-use features include easy-to-read depth scales, a chip deflector engineered to direct chips away from the operator, and a durable flat top design for stability when changing bits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely powerful, awesomely smooth I recently purchased this Makita router (rp2301fc). I've seen some reviews asking where to get a template guide adaptor, so you can use the porter cable/dewalt type guide bushings. I also have a Leigh super 18 dovetail jig, which requires a router base that accepts a porter cable/dewalt type bushing. The Makita part is 321492-390A. I ordered it from Home Depot online, but try Acme Tools as well. There are so many good things about this router, I would have to write a book. One thing I really like is the electric brake. No more waiting an inordinate amount of time to stop. Long story short, it works great. If I were limited to one router, this Makita would definitely be it. Mine was made in Japan. In my opinion, Makita tools made in Japan are of better. quality, than those made in China.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router Bought because of the linear bearings used for the plunge mechanism. Smooth as as silk. I use this with a Leigh FMT pro jig and you will not find a better router for the job.Have used without the jig and starting to think about getting anotherone and selling the PC 690. Anyway a great but
