How do you put a router bit in a Makita router model 3612BR


Inserting the bit should be the same on all versions of the Makita 3612 router. It does depend on the bit size. Press the shaft lock to keep the shaft from turning. I think the lock is close to the handle on one side of the router when you hold the router with the bit/collet up. For small shaft bits, insert the appropriate collet sleeve into the collet cone. Then insert the bit completely into the sleeve. For larger shaft bits, insert the bit completely into the cone. Use the wrench to tighten the collet nut securely. Unlock the shaft lock. Do not over-tighten or leave the bit loose in the collet cone/sleeve. Over-tightening can break the collet cone. Leaving it loose can result in the bit flying out of the collet cone. Either way, injuries can occur. To remove a bit, loosen the collet nut and then remove the bit (or bit and collet sleeve).

The manual is available on the product page: https://www.makitatools.com/products/details/3612 . The direct link to the manual is https://cdn.makitatools.com/apps/cms/doc/prod/361/df12a409-2bd0-48c3-aa38-d635a480a76e_3612_IM.pdf . See page 8.

I hope this helps.

Makita template guide does not fit


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.

Replacing 5007 baseplate


I hope we're talking about the same nut, is it the one on the lever to lock the cutting depth? If so, it's held in place by a lock plate that you remove by taking out the small pan head screw next to the nut. After you take the lock plate off the nut should come off easily.

I cannot figure out how to get faucet apart to actually get the cartridge out. I removed the handle and I can see the cartridge inside but I can't get the housing off. Please advise. I have the...


Under the handle, there is a curved trim ring at the top that needs to be unscrewed from the base. This can be on tight due to hard water buildup. I cut two strips of rubber to wrap, one to wrap around the trim ring and the other to wrap base while using channel locks for the trim ring and a pipe wrench to keep the base from turning.

After that is off, you will see a large hex head retainer nut that holds the valve assembly in place. A spanner wrench will get that off fairly easy.

Reassembly is the reverse. Kohler specs the hex nut to be torqued at 9 ft-lbs or 1//4 turn past hand tight.

Makita LS1030 miter saw, base doesn't rotate as freely as it should


dust and debris get under the plate; remove the fence from the base and the lock mechanism from the plate; flip saw over and remove the retaining nut from the spindle, the base should pull easily away from the plate.thoroughly clean the bottom of the plate and the top of the base and check for/remove any imperfections in either with emory cloth. use a mineral oil based lubricant when reassembling and be careful not to overtighten the retaining nut.blow out the base after use with an air gun and lube lightly after each day's use to avoid this in the future

I don't know how to change the grinding blade on my makita angle grinder.


There is a nut that you release from the middle of the grinder wheel, (grinder blade)
This nut is flat and has four holes in it.

You will see you are providing a spanner wrench to remove this nut. The wrenches' actual name is Lock Nut Wrench. It has a U shaped end with two pins sticking out. On on each side of the U shape.

The pins are inserted into the holes in the flat lock nut, located in the middle of the grinding wheel. The wrench is laid flat against the grinding wheel, with the two pins of the wrench going into any two holes of the nut.

At the top of the Makita grinder you will see a Black button. The button is pushed down to keep the grinding wheel from spinning. Holds the grinding wheel in place, as you turn the lock nut loose. When you release the button, a spring inside pushes the button back up out of the way.

As you view the Makita grinder, Release Button towards the Back, grinding wheel towards you, the nut is turned to the LEFT, to loosen. It is a Left threaded nut.

The grinding wheel spins to the Right. Using a left threaded nut insures that the nut will stay tight, due to the direction the grinding wheel spins.

Lock nut on Makita 9069 is stuck & I can't loosen it. Using the lock nut wrench, but it won't budge. Any suggestions?


Make sure you are turning wrench and nut clockwise to remove nut and counterclock to put back on,you will never get nut off if turning counterclocwise,threads pitch is opposite to screw pitches.
You are tightening and did not know it maybe???
Other option:

Need to put lock nut wrench in a vise jaw and clamp, then place tool on wrench and press down and turn. This should give you added leverage to break loose nut,and btw make sure to turn clockwise to unscrew and clockwise to tighten,this is opposite of what you might do to tighten or untighten

Cannot remove the fixed base


Are you sure the lock nuts haven't loosened and worked their way down the threaded rod to tighten the router down into it's plunged position? That's a really common thing to happen with plunge routers, but without a model number I can't give you any certain advice.
Try breaking those two nuts loose and spinning them back up the stud and see if that doesn't do it.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

I am having difficulty changing the cutting bit on a Makita 3620


If I understand this right you can't remove the bit from the collet. If this is true there might be dirt on the collet and you can try and blow it out with compressed air. What I would do if that doesn't help is support the collet nut allowing the bit to hang free and gently tap on the back of the bit and this will remove it. It is possible that you may have overtightened it or the bit has a burr on it. Good luck
