It accepts standard Porter-Cable style guide bushings. This NOT work with the new Bosch colt model (#57485)

Nice sub base
I use my palm router to flush trim parts and this sub base makes it easy. You can see through it and the handles give lots of control. Make sure to tighten the handles as they could come loose during operation.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, perfectly
Will the hole pattern work for the dw670?
Jack on Apr 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: According to the router mounting hole key info, that came with the base, it will only fit the following- Porter Cable 7301 and 450, Bosch Colt 310, DeWalt 611. I checked it against my dw670 and no holes line up, but I think you could probable drill holes in it to match the router base.
Will this base fit the new Bosch Colt GKF125CE? It says Bosch routers but I've learned the hard way with Rockler that it still might not fit Bosch Routers.
