The Robotshop one for the Carbide Compact Router will fit the Makita RT0701/0700.

Tks, WillAdams. I'll get back to them. The beauty for me is that they have a Canadian location, so shipping is reasonable.

Have you tried their collets? How was run out?

The Robotshop collets are the same as the ones from Carbide 3D --- I have a set (Carbide 3D employee) and they're wonderfully well-made, w/ a crisper finish and slightly better centering of the cuts than the Elaire Corp. collets (I have a full set of them as well, but to be fair my 1/8" was from the first production run).

Will. I simply wanted to thank you again for posting here. I finally received my collets from a Canadian supplier, and as you said, they are of excellent quality and fit the Makita router perfectly.
