Question about Makita Tools & Hardware - Others
I have a Makita RT0700C router that comes with a template guide. The instructions direct you to place the template guide between the base and the base protector. I have two problems. The guide has too large a diameter to fit between the four screws that attach the base protector to the base (by maybe a few hundredths). And even if it did fit, the assembly is of center by about 3/16ths, such that only the tiniest bit would fit through the assembly. Am I just dumb, did I get a bum accessory or does Makita need to fire some engineers?

My Makita router arrived with a couple of template guide bushes of different sizes. The size of guide bush chosen for use with a particular template will be dictated by the template - stock templates usually state the size of guide to be used with that template and mostly these are generally so common sizes a good router is supplied with them, from memory I think the smaller of my guides is something like 17 mm.
Template guide bushes are flimsy and easily damaged and so it is expected router users will be buying spares and other sizes. They are almost universal but not quite and router users are quite adept at minor modifications to make things fit, and not just guide bushes but also router tables, adaptors for various tasks and so forth.
I suggest you take a glance through a few catalogues featuring router accessories, including Makita of course.

could be a couple things. First how is the shank on the bit e.g. is it worn down, second is it the right size for the collet being used (have to ask) and what is the condition of the collet and collet nut. What I would do is make sure there is nothing to prevent from completely tightening the collet nut. Also make sure if the collet locks into the nut that it is properly installed. Lastly make sure that you use the wrenches provided to tighten the assembly. If this doesn't help please provide the model number and brand and I will do some more research.

Home Depot or Lowes will have them. If you don't know the size, or don't have one like it, take a good look at the threaded hole and go down and get two or three screws that look close and try them, you will find it!

Woodhaven sells all kinds of router accessories, or you can call freud, or you can make them yourself. We always made our own, to fit the job. It is nice to have the original for a template though.

it is threaded and I believe it might be left hand thread. this is for the chuck itself, I looked at the breakdown and that is all I can see, if you want before attempting you can go to Makitausa.com and download the parts schematic. Please if you need more assistance before voting let me know. Thank you
