With the milescraft turnlock base plate you can only line up 2 screw holes and to take the base plate off the Makita is a real pain what with the 2 springs and the lever and a bigger pain refitting it, that said you could just get a couple of longer screws and fit the milescraft plate over the existing plate which is what I do. I suggested the brass guides as the Makita template guides range in price from $14.45 Au for 1 up to $31.25 Au. per guide In the UK at Axminister they range in price from 10.36 Bp to 15.30 Bp per guide.
I use the Milescraft turnlock base plate and guides, also the brass guides and the Makita guides on the RP2301FC.
You can just make out the 2 lugs that hold the adapter ring in. They are just below the 2 screws.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
