Quality product, works great with my DeWalt router
I recently upgraded my router for a table project and I needed to do some pattern work. My local home supply had bushing kits, but they were a mix of steel and plastic than required a special base plate and made me nervous with durability and possible damage to my router bits.

The Rockler bushings are a quality product and I like the fact they are brass if for some reason something would come loose to keep from damaging my bit. I also like the fact they came with a storage case for safe keeping, seems like more and more products are lacking this lately. While my router came with a centering come, it is more for the router baseplate (which you want to center first before adding the bushing) so the fact the bushing kit came with one for each arbor size was great as they are specifically sized for the bushings. I had several deep cuts to make and even with the vibrations of the router the bushing stayed tight to the base. These bushings fit perfectly into the baseplate if my DeWalt DW618 2.25 hp router without any alterations.

Best bushings I ever used
I have been working with wood for about 57 years and these are the best router bushings I have come across.

Woodworking Experience:
Rockler's router bushing guide kit is the right one for all of your finest router work. It is simple to attach and center on your router and insures that your efforts will be rewarded with a beautiful finished master piece. There is no slippage or wandering of the bushing as I have had with other bushing kits. This kit is now my mainstay for my router work.

Plastic not strong enough.
Richard D on Jan 13, 2017
Inherited a few jigs and no bushings are with them. This comes with the centering pin, not much more expensive than a single bushing and centering pin purchased separately.. decided to just get this kit.

Robert W on Dec 22, 2016
Wanted to use templates for router work. The bushing kit seems like a good general purpose kit for that type of work.
Dave C on Dec 21, 2016
Over the years I acquired a bushing here and there and they didn't all fit my old Bosch router. Now I have a new router and this kit and it all works together. I got rid of the old bushings and made space for other things.

Will these guide bushings fit a Triton router ??
Quirt D on Mar 20, 2016
How long are the guide bushings that ride along the edges of the templates? Some brands have guides that get longer than 1/4" as the diameter of the bushing increases. This makes using 1/4" material for templates impractical.
Al S on Aug 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The larger bushings have a guide hub thicker than 1/4". Plan on 1/2" material for your template.
Are replacement bushings available?
Phil on Jan 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you should be able to buy them seperatly.
Does the mounting provide for EXACT fit inside Dewalt sub base plates? I've just had problems with another brand that fit slightly loosely in the base plate hole which made it impossible to get repeatable results for close tolerance work.
Al S on Aug 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have a set of these bushings and they fit both of my DeWalt routers.
Does this kit work for Craftsman 1/2 inch shank router?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's less about the router as it is the router base plate. This will fit in any router base which has a standard template guide opening.
Does the bushing locking ring have a locking set screw to prevent the ring from vibrating loose while your are running the router around the pattern? If not, how can you get the ring tight enough with only your fingers?
Lonny on Feb 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I just get them finger tight and haven had any problems. I do take the base plate off the router to install the bushing and this allows me easy access to get the locking ring tight. With the plate off you could get a small slip lock (Channel Lock) type of pliers to get it tighter if you wanted to.
Will this work with Makita routers?
Marcelo on Aug 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am using this kit with a Makita router yes...it will work...as others have said...as long as you have a base plate with a 1 3/16ths diameter hole in it.

Will these fit a Ridgid R29302 and/or Dewalt DWP611?
Rob S on Dec 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You will need to use the base plate designed for the bushing kit, then they should fit either router.
are the sizes of the bushings marked on the Bushings or on the storage box??
Scotlee on Dec 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are marked on neither, but I always double check with my dial caliper before using them any way.
will this kit work on a Mikita model 3601B?
Bill O on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use these on a BOSCH COLT PALM router. The base plate hole has to be 1 3/16" diameter. With that size hole I see no problem. I am very satisfied with this product. Everything I have bought from ROCKLER I am pleased with. Hope this helps you. Ed

Will this work with the DeWalt 621 Type 1 plunge router?
Joe M on Mar 19, 2018
