Wanted: Guide Bushings for Craftsman 315 Series Routers
Can anyone tell me where I might find a guide bushing set for Craftsman 315 series routers? I own three such routers (315.17492, 315.174730 and 315.275051) and need a 7/16” diameter x 3/16” deep guide bushing that will fit any one of them in order use a dovetail jig that my cousin-in-law has lent me. The part I need looks similar to the image one gets if one asks SearsPartsDirect.com for Part No. 1609443230—image attached—but note that the description for that part provided by SearsPartsDirect does NOT list the critical dimensions…and both of the two Customer Service Reps I chatted with online say that the additional information they have in their database for this part does not contain the critical dimensions, only a statement that the specified part should fit any one of my three 315 series routers! I can’t spent $11.94 plus shipping in the hope that, purely by luck, the specified part might be the size I need.
I wanted to search the SearsPartsDirect.com website for “router guide bushing set” in the hope that there might be a set of such bushings available for 315 series routers that contains the bushing size I need, but I quickly learned…confirmed by a chat rep and a rep at my local Sears Parts store…that the Sears Parts databases do not allow one to search by keyword; they only support searches by model number or part number. (Very frustrating!)
Any help/work-arounds would be greatly appreciated!
