Great to give a more stable base for a smaller router. Having hand holds is even better.

Really helps keep those small trim routers level. I’ve only used it a few times so far but I really enjoy it.

I wish I had this before I did my new WorkMate tops. Cutting the v grove would have been so much easier and better.

    If you purchased a Harbor Freight, Drill Master trim router like I did and you need a compact sub-base that will accept template guide bushings, this is for you. YES, this fits the Drill Master trim router just like it is supposed to. If you are going to use a Milescraft Sign Pro jig, having the ability to use template guide bushings is a must. Having handles on the base is also a good thing for better router control. YES, Milescraft supplied a router baseplate with the Sign Pro jig but I will use that baseplate on another router. My trim router is also used for freehand routing so I needed the handles and the ability to use bushings. I chose the Milescraft compact Sub Base because it fit the needs for this router and it works great. This sub-base will accept the Harbor Freight template guide bushings. I purchased a set of those before I knew that Milescraft also has bushings. At any rate, Milescraft did a great job on this base plate. You can even do mortising with this base plate. Having all this versatility is why I give this Milescraft product 5 stars.
