Default Guide bushing set for Bosch 1617

In my search for a guide bushing set for my Bosch 1617EVSPK I have found that I need to order from the internet cause the stores have a crappy stock situation. I was going to get the PC adapter which will let me use brass, screw type bushings.

I was at Home Depot tonight and I see that they have a Ridgid set, model RBK1032, which has the brass bushings, 2 base plates, a centering bit and a countersink bit which lets you drill perfect holes to fit the enclosed bases to any router you want.

This sounds like the best deal for matching non-Bosch bushings to whatever, including Bosch.

I forget the price but I think it was $29 or $39. I can't look it up on line cause there are none available in a search and HD website doesn't list it. Gee, I wonder why people don't buy more of their products...duh.

Anyway, has anyone here purchased that set? Please give me a review.

I saw that set at Lowes. But then you still need to buy the brass bushings. I think the Ridgid set is a real good value unless I don't know what I'm talking about, which has happened a couple of times

This set comes with the 1" that's not the norm
Plus with turnlock out you can use the 1 1/2" diam.bits not the norm for most plates that will take on the PC guides.

The milescraft are all plastic parts aren't they? I don't like that. If I am going to buy the Milescraft mostly for the adapter I would have to just go for the Bosch adapter which I would have to order on line. Gee I hate ordering a toy and having to wait for it. The must be a place around locally that carries it. I'll look some more.
Are those HF bushings one of the HF items that can be recommended?

I just found this thread concerning the HD bushing set. I guess I will be getting the HF set.

For my bosch, i went to the local woodcraft store. They sell a universal base plate that I was able to get to fit on my plunge base. This allows me to use the PC style guides bushings.

You can rework the brass adapter to take on the (1 1/2") Big brass guides very easy with a Forestner drill bits..
That's a real plus for the adapter way..

For some reason info on this set is nowhere else to be found on the web.
