Simple and durable
There isn't a whole lot to say. The guide bushing was required for the Rockler keyhole cutting template and it works perfect for that application. It is easy to screw on by hand tight enough to stay, but easy enough to unscrew when finished.

Rockler Short Shank Bushing for Keyhole Template
Great addition to the keyhole template. I used it with a 1/2" Amana keyhole bit, and it performed as expected.

Perfect, don't forget about your router plate
Had to build a custom plate to accept the bushing but it's perfect, does exactly what it's supposed to.

Picked this one to go with Rockler's keyhole template as it needs a shallow guide bushing to match the 1/4in height of the template.

Does this bushing fit the Bosch 1617 series router base?
Ron P on May 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Sorry Ron, have not tried on that router.
Good Day! Will this bushing work with the DEWALT DWP611PK?
Nick M on Feb 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely, I've used it with this router using the circle jig.
What is the total height of the bit, tip of shaft to cutting edge?
Danny C on Mar 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm afraid I cannot be of much help at the moment...the short shank bushings are great for thin templates...I am afraid that I cannot find my 5/8 bit right now to measure and give you an answer...I'm in the middle of too many projects at once, and cannot seem to find my 5/8 bit...but unless you have a specialty situation, I would imagine that almost any 5/8 bit of reasonable depth could help, when you are using it with a short shank bushing...if the bit is too short, you could use it for a short depth, and then switch to a pattern bit to finish the depth. Hope this is helpful...
