Will this unit fit The Dewalt Dw618 Router????
Az plus 1 on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can use the bushing to follow any pattern you have. It is a lot easier than using a top or bottom bearing bit unless you are flush trimming. You can use smaller bits with a big bushing to produce border designs.
Will this work with a Bosch 1617 Plunge Router?
Raffi G on Jun 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Only if you have the attachment that allows for Porter Cable style bushings. If so, then yes ... will work great.
What is the advantage using bushings?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The bushings follows the letter guide. Without it, the router but will cut into your letters
Why do you use bushings?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: When purchasing the templates Rockler stocks, this template is required, a standard bushing is too long or templates too thin for a standard bushing to work. This brass bushing holds up longer than the plastic bushing which comes with some templates
will this fit a ryobi R175?
Dennis E on Apr 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Without knowing the size & specs on your R175, my rec would be to obtain your specs from Ryobi, have them handy, & simply call your nearest Rockler store. An associate there will be able to provide you a quick, accurate answer -
What’s the length of the guide?
Austin D on Apr 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I am not in my shop @ the moment I cannot get a measurement, but it works fine with the lettering kit I purchased from Rockler
Will this fit on my RIDGID 5.5 Amp Corded Compact Router? Model # R24012
MESIROW on Feb 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I really not sure, since I don't have that model router.
Will ths bushing work with a Chicago 44914 trim router?
Larry R on Jun 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not that familiar with the Chicago power tools. Trim routers usually have a smaller base than a standard router which has a base about 6" or so. My guess is that it won't fit. I believe the diameter of the bushing is about 1-3/8 to 1-1/2 and if the base on your trim router has a hole about that size it may work. The sign setup is more for a full size router than a trim router.
Do you sell this independent of the kits in the UK? Too much to post it.
