Not sure if it will work in your case, but I heard some good word about the Oneida universial dust-free router hood, compatible with most brands.

I believe he can press-on a collar onto the 1/8" shank bits so that they will fit a 1/4" collar. May also have 8mm press-on adapters too. At least that was the case several years ago when I bought some. There is a page of collet kits too.

Hi Derek - Have you looked at Micro-Fence? Do not know if he makes a plunge base for the Makita but he does for the Bosch and it may have dust control as well as visibility.
Thanks,  Curt

I use either carbide 1/8" or 5/32" bits with a 1/4" shank. These are better at getting into the corners than a 1/4" bit.

Hi Curt

The problem with the Micro-Fence bases is that they are really no different from other plunge router bases - in fact they are worse, since they lack provision for dust control. 

I could use this Elu plunge router (I have 4 Elu plunge routers!) ...




This router has excellent dust control ... for a plunge router. However, it is not in the same universe as the Makita trim router, as this is completely enclosed. It captures ALL the dust. A plunge router simply cannot do this as it is open. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the limited visibility from a trim router then restricts how it is used ... hence the jig I developed. It is a jig for work holding. (One still has to guide the router freehand. There is nothing automatic here. There is workmanship of risk, not certainty).

Yes, he has ones that get quite small from the 1/8" shank. I think I have a 3/32" endmill style in my collection.

One could go completely off the deep end and get a 1/64"... https://www.precisebits.com/products/car...uct_id=394

Love that jig. I will use a trim router to remove the waste from pin boards on through DT joints and normally just clamp on a chunk of wood for more surface area. I will cutout some of the waste with a coping saw, then use a trim router with a morticing bit with a bearing. This type of simple jig will put the clamps right where I need them conveniently.

All cuts are made with a hand saw, so technically, they are still hand cut DTs.
