Makita template guide does not fit

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.

SOURCE: I am unable to get a tight fit on my router bit.

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.

SOURCE: Do you know where I will be able to get hold of

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.

the spacers are used to make the hole in the blade fit snugly on the shaft
replace the blade in the same way that it was taken off
all you have to do is mount the blade with the arrow facing the direction of rotation

Makita slide compound- Saw Blade. LS0714


It seems as though the original blade was fitted without a spacer. These usually come with any new blade. It is simply a washer (usually aluminium) that fits in the hole of the saw blade and reduces the hole diameter down to the size of the flange on your saw. This is common practice. Never try and centre a blade without the correct size hole to flange size. Very dangerous. These washes are really cheap and can be obtained from most hardware stores. Usually in an assortment of different outside and inside diameters to suit any circumstance. Hope this helps, cheers Bob.

Makita HP1640 hammer drill dual mode - 2 hours


Exchanged Makita HP1640 hammer drill for a new one. The 2nd drill did the same thing in under an hour!! Will return for refund. Instructions say the Forward/Reverse switch must be in a full up or down position for the Hammer/Rotary switch to move; well, it is and the Hammer/Rotary switch still stops at a 1/2 way point between modes. Although I can still use the drill, instruction warnings say not to because it may potentially burn out the motor. I'll have to go with a different brand this 3rd time around. It seems to be a design flaw.
