Works well, but you have to make sure it does not get loose. It has to be checked on a regular basis.

For doing a documentation plate for a boat
Bradford M on Apr 14, 2020
The one that came with the sign template kit flew off in use ruining the threads. If you’ve bought a kit, be sure to make sure to retighten often.

which bushing do i need for a dewalt dwp611?
tim s on Sep 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can use the bushings with any router base plate that has a 1-3/16" center hole. The router doesn't care. The base plate is the key.
i want to use my 1 3/16 hole on my router guide how do i make rocklers 3/4 guide work
Gary C on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: you have to order abase plate specific to your router, you will have to do a little research since there is no a universal base.
how does this attach to the router?
Nora w on Apr 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have several sizes of these brass bushings. Many router bases or attached sub bases come come with a a correct hole n counter sunk depression that you drop/fit the bushing into from the bottom side. The top piece if the brass bearing tightens into the threads of the bottom half. Finger tight securely then I use a pair of regular pliers to careful smudge it more. Brass is very soft so be careful doing the pliers thing. I do this extra step beyond finger tighting because I had one bushing come loose n that was scary n a learning experience. I've not had another loosen or come loose since that adrenalin pumping event. Before you start using your router each time always check it over, make sure the bits n bushings are secure n snug/tight but not overly ! Enjoy your experience and alway think safety !.
I been trying to make signs. I totally trashed the first bushing I used. The guide side got chewed up. What causes this. Am I routing too deep?
Dan B on Apr 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Without seeing your router setup and the damaged bushing, I cannot be certain, but I suspect that you're using a router bit that is too large in diameter - this the spinning bit is hitting the bushing's side while either raising the bit or lowering the bit or both. The diameter of the router bit must be matched to the proper size bushing. Example: 3/8" diam bit is used with the 3/8" bushing. Rockler's sign making kits come with the proper size bushing to fit their templates, but you must buy the matching router bit separately from Rockler.
will a 5/8th inch router bit pass through this bushing?
bill h on Jun 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You need to use a bit that is at least 1/16 smaller in diameter, that is 9/16 or less. If anything flexes at all in the bit, base or router, you will chew up the bushing. The friction will even cause the bushing to loosen and get chewed up. I did that with a similar operation with a 1/4 inch bit and bushing. It damaged the project.
does this include the lock nut?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure what you mean by "lock nut" unless you mean the threaded portion of the bushing that screws down on the top part of the bushing as shown in the picture. What comes with the bushing set is what is shown in the picture and described in the catalogue.
How much does the bushing protrude from the base plate? It looks from the picture that it might be a quarter inch or slightly less?
Scooter J on Jul 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It sticks out just less than an 1/8 of an inch. Te same thickness of as the Rockller letter temolate.
Will this bushing work on a Bosch router?
Norm F on Sep 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As long as your base plate will take porter cable type bushings.
What is the length of the shank?
Reid C on May 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: About 1/16 inch, use only on a very flat surface...
Is this the bushing needed for the keyhole template?
