WOOD magazine review

See-through subbase has lights and lasers

Review Summary

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 where you can't reference off an edge or end. Plus, its 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.
