Helpful Warning for using this Bushing
I purchased the State Park sign making kit in 2014. I used the kit once and shelved it. Recently, I began to make signage for our local Boy Scout troop. I did several signs without incident. As I was working on the 2nd to last sign, I noticed small brass filings in the sawdust. Instead of stopping like I should have, I continued to work. Yes; I know... Finally, I realized the bushing had come loose on the plate. Looking at the bushing, a small section was missing. I chalked it up to contact between the bit and the soft bushing. I started sign 5. As I finished up sign five, I noticed small black plastic filings in the sawdust. I stopped, checked the bushing and most of one side was missing. I had damaged several letters including the Y. You only get one Y... The sign had to be scrapped. I couldn't quite put my finger on the continued deterioration of the bushing. The next day, I replaced the sign kit (really needed that Y). Started sign 5 again and by the end, a portion of the replacement bushing was missing (see attached photos) and once again, I had damaged letters and numbers. Looking at the bushing, I noted that about 1/3 had thinned. At that point I realized what had occurred. The plunge plate was slightly out of alignment and the carbide bit was wearing the soft brass. The loose bushing the day before had disguised what was really occurring. The tolerances are tight and I overlooked resetting the plate on the plunge base. So, be sure that your plate is dead center relative to the bit or you may end up purchasing, at a minimum, a new bushing and at worst, a new kit for $79.99 plus tax. This set makes great signs and I would definitely purchase the sign kit again. However, a warning in the packaging might be helpful for those new to sign making/using these kits.

Excellent product and easy to use. Received my replacement guide without a problem, though several requests for replacement letter templates have fallen on deaf ears. Rockler really need to step up their game in this respect

This product works great! I think the sign making letters need to be thicker with a slightly bigger bushing. If you are not careful the bushing will pop out of the letter and cut into it. Once that happens that letter is trash.

FOR SIGN MAKING MY BUSHINGS ARE TOO DEEP
Francis B on Apr 23, 2017
The one that was included in my signmaking kit didn't make it through three letters before getting destroyed. I'm having to replace it within its first ten minutes of use. The letter templates need to be thicker, and the bushing guide needs to be longer.

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?
