I think I have the fix for my Makita! You guys know how frustrated I was, after getting what I thought was my ultimate router, the Makita, after finding out there's no lights on the Makita's??? (Still planning on a gripe letter, btw.)
Well, some time ago, Ken and I were at the @Home store (it's complicated) and in the impulse aisle as we were getting in line to leave, I found this little light with a slide-on clip. Thought: "why not... if it doesn't work, $5 down the drain. If it does, WHOOP WHOOP we be in business!"
Well, many moons later, I ran across this little light, (or did Ken find it; I don't remember.) Anyway, I clamped it on, and lo' & behold, Let There Be Light!!!
The drawback? I have to remember to shut 'er off when I'm done
otherwise, it's been working beauuuuuutifully!!!
