Hello all , pretty new to this forum. I am looking for a router for my overarm Bosch 93940 . I want something variable speed and a soft start. I was looking at the MLCS 9564 3-1/4 HP Variable Speed or the 3 ¼ BORA Portamate PM-P254. Any experience with these? now my question is really , does anyone know the motor dimensions on the Milwaukee 5625-20 15 Amp 3-1/2-Horsepower Fixed Base Variable Speed Router ? I have several milwaukee routers and love em and thought this may be an alternative to my other choices since I really don’t recognize the other brand names. Any help would be great , Thanks and have a great weekend

Mine is mounted in a lift so I sold the base. The motor (I measured these so they are “close”) is 4 11/64” diameter and 7 3/4” tall, I didn’t measure the arbor chuck, but it may stick out 1 1/2” or so. The diameter was measured at the smooth part where the base would clamp down.

Thanks Fred , Looks like it’ll be a little to small . The mount for my overarm is 4.25 ! do you know much about the MLCS or the BORA motors ?
Thanks again

Nothing at all. I haven’t even seen any reviews in the magazines for them.

I’d have to say to that as well. I’ve always had routers with VS built in so never needed one.
