Default dewalt 625

I broke the fence on my dewalt 625, it has 10mm rods spaced at 100mm centres, the makita 193312-9 fence looks a lot better quality, does any one know the dimensions of the rods & centres of the makita, or a website that gives the dimensions, from jonathan

Hi Jonathan

There are two different fences available for the DW625. The all-alloy one doesn't take too kindly to being dropped (when attached to the router, that is - I doubt that any ally fence does), but other than that it is pretty durable in my experience. I've still got an Elu MOF177e from the mid-1980s with the original ally fence. The DW steel and alloy composite fences (identical to that sold with the DW621/DW622 over here) is more durable, but I don't think it's such a good fence. I have broken only one DW625/MOF177e fence in 30-odd years and that was after several trips to a concrete floor (the joy of site work!)

I know that the cast alloy fences from the Bosch GOF2000ce and GOF1300ce are compatible with the DW621/DW622/DW624/DW625/DW626, but I can't say for the Makita fences. Looking at the Mak fence in photos it doesn't really seem any better/stronger than the DW one (of which it is seemingly a copy), and it seems to be a lot more expensive than a replacement DW part (at circa £25 - although you can sometimes get the full fence with rods for little more o eBay). The only Makita replacement I can find in the UK under the part number you quote is the steel type which is comparible with the DW steel type - but a lot more expensive - so if you do go Makita I'd be careful to check what you're getting.



"Unfortunately there is lots of bad information online; some of it is really scary. It's probably not intentional, but I've seen some content that sets up the illusion that you can do whatever you want and get away with it" - Norm Abram in an interview with Jefferson Kolle
