roxanne562001 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!!

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.

Hi I will send you a picture of a base plate pattern. Just print it full size. See attached. Use it so you can find the center of your base plate I am not sure what you have. I always just buy bulk phonelic material and cut it the size I want to fit my table. I made a pattern out of clear plexiglass first. You can put the paper pattern over the drill rod and plate and mark the holes I use it over and over. I then find the center of the plate and bore a .250" whole you can chuck a .250" drill rod in the router that will put the plate in the center of the router. If you make the plexiglass pattern just put it over the drill rod and mark your base plate then drill and counter sink the holes. Always drill an extra hole about 2" from center in your base plate so you can us a starter pin for free hand routing
If you already have a step bushing hole in your base plate you can make a bushing that will fit in the larger hole. It will look like a big fender washer with a 1/4 hole in the center and the out side will be the size of the pattern bushing hole.
I hope this helps.

ggom20 Hello!

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.

mailee 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.

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.
My ryobi table router had a problem with electronic regulation to.
opened the router, rewired for working full speed without electronics
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.
