Does your new plate have a hole in the center or no? Maybe send me a pic of all of the parts you have, mainly the base plate that you are trying to mount to the M12V. The pic / diagram I sent you should be the mounting whole locations on your router. |
Have a Nice day!!

Should be ok to do so.
Thanks to keep me informed.

|mailee||Thanks Gerard, I know it is not the brushes as I have checked those first. It started with the router giving fluctuations in speed, (as did my last one) and then finally gave up altogether. I am now looking around for a variable speed control I can use and just remove the speed controller in the router. I know someone who may be able to show me how to remove the controller and wire it out. Will keep you informed if it works or not.|

I am attaching a base plate pattern that might help you

I hope this helps.

Think you need help from a qualified guy, some repair-shops are
helpfull, and the bill could be reasonable , some are real thiefs...
How do you know it comes from electronics ?
You could check the carbon brushes .
After 3 to 5 Years heavy works , they could need changing, that's normally a cheap part.

I am afraid I wouldn't know where to start to wire up the router direct Gerard. I have had the top off but am not sure what wires to connect to what? |
Yes this will be my third Hitachi M12V. I don't think it is just me being unlucky as there alwasy seems to be a few for sale on E bay with a similar problem. My first thought was to buy a second hand one and use the electronic module from that but so far I have not found one for spares with the motor still working. It is a great pity as the router is a great machine with plenty of power. I should mention though that both of these routers have lasted between three and five years in which they have done a lot of work. I did expect longer from them though.

A new electronicspeed variation is on the wiring outside the router.
Bobj3 said this one is good:
Router Speed Control
I use an other system but it's Homemade.

|mailee||I am on my second Hitachi M12V table mounted router. I just used the base plate as a template to drill out the Phenolic plate in my table and recessed the screw heads into it. I have found that the Hitachi M12V's seem to have a problem with the electronic speed controls as my second one has just given up recently, this also happened to my first one?? It is almost as much to buy a new one as the price of the router. Looks like I will have to buy another again.|
