Default M12V base

Hi all, I have an older (might be the original; at least 10 years old) M12V and I broke the cast aluminum base. It’s a discontinued part. I noticed in a store that the base of the current Makita RP2301FC looks the same (in fact, a lot of things on that router look the same). Is there any chance these Makita and Hitachi routers share parts? The base of the Makita is available to buy.

take the motor to store and test fit it...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Hi and welcome. I’m of the opinion that Makita and Hitachi are made in the same factory. I think the parent company might be Rexon. I have that router also and it looked very much like an older Makita and appears to share the same collet. That collet is a bit of an oddity in design so it would be an odd coincidence if they weren’t the same. I also have a Makita 1900B 3 1/8” power plane and Hitachi sold an identical machine that even used the same model number. The only difference was the colour of the plastic body. So I think there is an excellent chance the bases interchange.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
