This offset router base offers increased stability with a larger surface area and a geared design that offsets the router bit further towards the edge of the base, 18.5mm at its closest, allowing you to get in much tighter to walls and corners than a traditional plunge base would allow. This offset base is purpose designed to fit the motor of the R5000 or R5002 1/4" Routers.

The offset base is made from a machined aluminium die casting and the base plate is machined from steel. On the bottom of the base is an anti-friction, no mar phenolic sub base to ensure a smooth sliding movement over the workpiece. You simply push the motor body into the round base and then lock off with the large clamping lever. You now have a compact router with a large surface area base for stability that can work up close to edges and tight corners. An excellent offset base that will allow you to enhance your workpiece finish. ©

Purchased this to complete the set for my compact router. Of equally good quality as the rest of my Rutlands routing gear. Really handy for getting into tight spots where the plunge base often proved too bulky. A great addition to the set, I am extremely pleased with it.

The standard base was perfectly fine for most uses but a bit awkward to manoeuvre when working close to edges ..this base gives me a larger surface area with that extra bit of stability...swapping bases is incredibly straightforward just unlock the clamp and slide the motor body out. I'm considering the tilting base next to expand the versatility of my router.
