quick change
The adapter is great idea, however I purchased a router table and the adapter can't be used. If I ever have to use the router away from the table I'm sure it will do a great job.

Was exactly what I needed. Installed easily and allows for quick changing of template guides for Poter Cable dove tail jig.
I bought a Porter Cable 4216 dove tail jig kit and realized that the template guides did not fit my Bosch router (RA1161). After extensive research I found this adapter kit. This adapter kit was exactly what I needed. It fits all the template guides with ease. It was easy to install, is flush with the base, and works well.

What is needed
Ordered to use with the Rockler dovetailing bits. This perfectly integrates with the Bosch 1617 router base. Only tried it on the fixed base so far, but the plunge base seems to be identical and cannot see any reason it will not work as well.

Not compatible with Bosch dust collector
I wish I read this somewhere before I purchased it. I planned to use it with the sign making templates. Surely someone could design a stronger part that works.

Will the Inlay Bushing and Bit with Removable Collar Item #: 27593 work with the
Bosch RA1129 Quick-Change Template Guide Adapter Kit Item #: 54217 ?
James E. W on Dec 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't own the inlay bushing. I own the quick change t. All of my guide bushings fit. I see no reason why this inlay bushing wouldn't fit. The Bosch adapter is designed to accept all standard guide bushings.
I have a Bosch 1617 plunge router and a Rockler State Park sign-making kit. Will this part enable me to screw in the guide bushing that came with the sign making kit?
Ronald on Nov 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not 100 percent certain, but it enables you to use porter cable style threaded bushings so assuming your bushing is a standard size; yea, it would work.
Can you make this set up fit a porter cable production base 75361?
Jeremy T on Aug 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You would have to modify the baseplate to make this work. You would be better off buying a set for the porter cable router itself they work better.
Is quick change template guide compatible with my Bosch 1617EVSPK with plunge base?
RON P on Feb 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should work fine. My trim router had 2 pre drilled holes for mounting.
Will this fit the plunge base of the Bosch Colt?
Rex D on Jan 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes
On the Bosch MRP23EVS there is an LED light. Do adapters (and I guess the bushing kits) interfere with seeing what you are doing?
