OnPoint Laser Router Plate is a Wood® Magazine "Hot New Tool"

Review of OnPoint Laser Router Plate from Wood® Magazine, Dec/Jan 2008 Issue.

The On-Point Universal Laser Guided Router Plate with LED lIghts was voted one of "15 HOT NEW TOOLS FOR 2008". The laser red "X" marks the spot with this router subbase. MLCS's On Point Laser Guided Router Base shines a laser crosshair to show the exact center of the bit. That's handy when freehand routing or setting up field cuts, such as fluting. Plus, it's oblong shape and outboard handle make it more stable for edge-routing. For cuts not requiring the laser, switch on the bright white LED worklights; combined with the clear subbase, they provide great bit visibility. On Point comes predrilled to fit many popular midsize and 3-hp routers, but can be drilled to fit any."

Review of OnPoint Laser Router Plate from September 2007 American Woodworker.

Lasers seem to be everywhere in the shop these days. Thanks to the folks at MLCS, routers are no exception. The new OnPoint Laser Router Plate... contains laser cross hairs that helps you perfectly position your router for plunge cuts.

I have to admit I was skeptical when I first saw this product. But now that I've used it to cut some dadoes and mortises, I'm a believer. The cross hairs do a great job of simplifying a joint's layout. You just have to remember that with the OnPoint plate your layout must be based on the center of the plunge cut, not the joint's edge.

To mount the OnPoint plate to your router, you install a V-bit in the machine. Then, to align the lasers with the tip of the bit, you mark out and drill the screw hole locations for your router's base.

This... needs to be done correctly to make good use of the cross hairs. Take your time and make certain it's right. From then on your router will be perfectly sighted in."
