    Still going strong! (5/5), Feb 18, 2015

    By Robert Hicks (Chittenango NY US)

    Iím a 40+ year cabinetmaker and have tried hundreds of specialty products. Many have turned out to be gimmicks, taking too much time to set up and are ultimately stored away with little or no future use. I have to say that the MLCS On-Point system is everything itís advertised to be. Setup is quick and easy and performance is great with freehand, template and plunge routing tasks. The laser light, along with the additional LEDs and the clear router plate provide amazing accuracy, especially when carving signs. The dust collection feature is a definite plus for keeping uniform visibility of the work piece, along with helping to minimize clean up. I use it primarily with my 690 router, but it easily adapts to my older Sears and DeWalt products.

    I purchased this router plate over 3 years ago and it gets plenty of regular use. The thick plastic base has not warped or cracked and the electronics are still going strong. As with all my valued tools, I have my own maintenance program for this product, which Iím sure has increased its longevity. To minimize surface scratches on the base, I periodically apply a light coat of paste wax to its top and bottom. I also keep watch for battery leakage, especially in hot weather months. Thank you MLCS, for another quality and durable product!

  • Bosch - any base with a 3 hole pattern, spaced 4" on center
  • DeWalt 616/618 Series, 621/625

      On-Point Universal Laser Guided Router Plate General Mounting Instructions – For routers not listed above.
    1. Remove the sub-base from your router
    2. Put a V Groove, or any pointed/small diameter router bit into your router
    3. Place your router on top of the Laser Plate and line up the point/center of the router bit with the exact center of the “X” of the laser guides
    4. Be sure the mounting screw holes in your router base do not overlap the laser guides or wiring in the Laser Plate. If it does simply rotate your router until the holes are clear of the laser guides and wiring
    5. Very carefully mark the mounting screw whole pattern on the Laser Plate
    6. Drill the proper size hole for your mounting screws completely through the Laser Plate
    7. From the bottom side of the Laser Plate counter sink each hole so that the screw head is below the surface of the Laser Plate. This will ensure that the screw heads will not mar your work or interfere in any way
    8. Mount your router to the Laser Plate
    9. Turn off Laser Plate when not in use. This will extend the life of the batteries and lasers

  • Using the On-Point Universal Laser Guided Router Plate to make perfectly spaced cuts

    Easily set up your straight edge guide using the On-Point's laser as your reference point. Perfect for cutting dado slots in furniture construction or making general decorative cuts in any project.

      Set-Up and Use:
    1. On your work piece, mark the centerline of your slot or groove with a pen, pencil or marking gauge
    2. Position the On-Point router base over the centerline drawn in step 1 at either end of the line. Turn on the laser and center the laser's cross hair directly over the point at the end of the line. Place your straight edge guide so that it is flush against the On-Point router base. (see fig. A and additional tip below).
    3. Move the On-Point router base to the opposite end of the line. Keeping the router base oriented the same way as it was in step 2, again place your straight edge guide so that it is flush against the On-Point router base. (see fig. B and additional tip below)
    4. Lock your straight edge guide in place and rout your groove

    Additional tip: If you are routing stopped grooves instead of through grooves, when you have the router set on the ends of your lines, clamp a stop block at the edge of the router base. Then when the On-Point router base contacts the stop block(s), you have cut the full length of your stopped groove (see fig. C).
