One drawback for the Makita and some of the other compact routers is that only comes with a 1/4″ collet. I got a very precise 1/8″ collet at http://www.elairecorp.com/makitaroutercollets.html. I don’t know if this will fit the Makita’s available in Europe though. In the US the Makita part number is different (RT0701C).

I went with the Makita because I could buy it locally, it has a nice built-in speed controller, it’s powerful, and very quiet. Let us know what spindle, speed controller you end up going with.
