Rockler Guide Bushing Router Plate
Very pleased with the Rockler Guide Bushing Router Plate. I had no problem attaching it to my router with the assortment of holes used to screw the plate on my router. Would definitely recommend this to other woodworkers.

Rockler guide bushing
Although it does not say it specifically fits a Dewalt 621 router it does with the exception of the hardware one screw was about 1/32 inch to long so it would stand proud, either shorten the screw or get another slightly shorter one. Research showed that the hole pattern between the 621 and the 625 was 1/16 of an inch different, but it fit fine with no modification to the plate. The report in regards to the 1/16 variation was from comparing other router plates online and could be incorrect. But with the exception of the screw being to long no worries, and it is entirely possible that "gunk" was in the hole and prevented the screw from going all the way. Bottom line I have a functioning guide bushing plate for my Dewalt 621 router.

Problem Solved!
Use of my new Porter-Cable dovetail jig was frustrated by the incompatibility of my Bosch router's base plate with the template guides furnished with the jig outfit. The Rockler baseplate easily attached to the fixed router frame with the included screws and the template guides fit perfectly. The new baseplate is also slightly larger than the original item, lending a bit more stability when used with the jig. An excellent value!

Gavin S on Jul 1, 2018
cause router makers and jig makers can't seem to decide on a standard plate or have any continuity so you have to buy adapters for everything. Its a conspiracy, i say.

does this base fit the Bosch MR23 Plunge or Fixed base router?
nathaniel w on Dec 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used the bits from the Rockler Dovetail jig and adapted them to my 1/2" Bosch - really struggled getting it to work - had to abandon it as it tore up the brass guide. The bit was extended too far and became really unstable.

Jack S on Dec 31, 2016
It appears that this plate is not pre-drilled to fit my off-brand router (Blue Hawk). Has anyone had any success with drilling this plate to custom fit it to their router? Is the plate solid plastic (1/4" thick)?
Dan R on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I had the same issue with my Bosch. I took my Bosch plate and clamped it to the new plate. I basically used my plate as a template. Then I drilled the new holes. I then unclamped the two plates and counter sunk the new plate. Works great! Hope this helps.

Coronado L on May 16, 2016

I would check the technical downloads section - Hole patterns for guide bushing router plate
Will this fit my off brand Harbor Freight Chicago Electric 1.5 HP plunge router? item#67119
Tommy B on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It bolted right onto my Bosch 1617 fixed base - but you could forward this list of compatible routers to Harbor Freight and see what they say. If not, it's pretty simple to make a template using your router base then drill out the plate (only) to fit.

Pre-drilled for the following routers:
•Porter Cable: 100, 690, 890 series 7529, 8529
•Makita: 1100 series
•Hitachi: M12VC
•DeWalt: DW625, DW616, DW618
•Bosch: 1617 series, 1618, 1619, 1619 EVS

Bill B on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure if it will fit the DeWalt. . I had to modify the mounting plate to fit my router. My router is one I bought from Menards
It says the base is solid plastic. What kind of plastic. Had plastic bases that warped terribly useless? The best base is made out of Bakelite
Cris S on Apr 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if the base is "Bakelite-specific". It is very stout. My router is old, and I had to drill holes to match my base. No problem.
Will this fit a Trend T5 router? Purchased the sign making kit and realised I need the base for the bushing to fit into.
Ian W on Aug 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Can't say for sure, am not familiar with the Trend T5 router. I used it on an older Craftsman unit and the plate has enough holes to be almost a universal fit. It takes some time to rotate the plate to line up with your units mounting holes and be centered on the shaft. I slid a 1/4 " shaft into the bit holder and set the plate on the unit and turned it until I found holes that would line up. Best I can offer. Good luck.
I have a Palm Router Bosch Colt 1.0 HP, does the Rockler Guide Bushing will fit?
Carlos S on Aug 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, I have the same router. The bushing set will not fit on any palm router. The bushing set fits in its own base and that is too large for any palm router.
Will this base plate fit a Black Hawk model 7343 from Lowes?
Edward H on Jul 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have never heard of the router referenced in this question so I don't know if Rockler's base plate will fit. Ed should bring the router into a Rockler store and see if it fits.

Prett on Sep 5, 2017

I have a Black & Decker RP250 10Amp router and I need a guide bushing router plate for sign making. Will this plate work on my router?
Dennis R on Mar 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used the plate and guide on my plunge router. It was too hard to set a spinning bit on the sign letters with a standard router. Some letters require two passes. Plunge router worked the best. Paul
Can I use Porter cable template guides with this plate? I see that the opening is 1/16 th larger that the PC template guides
tombill on Mar 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi fellow saw duster. I was able to use the plate for specific jobs only. I modified the play for a hinge jig. I mark the plate, so it always goes on the same way to the router. I mark the plate, so it always attaches the same way to the router. For normal routing, I use the factory plate. The moral of the story, I wouldn't use it for every day use. Good luck.
does anyone have a practical suggestion for precision transferring the hole pattern from an existing router to a new plate which does not have matching holes? I have an ELU (Black&Decker branded) 3hp Swiss made router. Reportedly renamed as DW625 but the base plates don't seem to fit any "Universal" plates.
Klemm on May 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Using a printer, make a copy of your plate onto clear label stock like Avery.
Then you can line up the copy over Rocklers plate and then drill the holes you need.
