Mike recommended these in another thread. I'm trying to understand what they are. He mentioned using PC guides but I have never routed with guides.

So ... is the RA1126 Quick Change Template Guide Adapter something that allows quick change (looks like a twist lock) of Bosch guides?

And then is the RA1100 Threaded Router Template Guide Adapter an adapter that goes into the quick change, to allow use of more "standard" guides?


Anyone standing by their router with a cell phone want to snap a pic?

Lucky you! It just so happens I have a few I took last year.

You need the adapter, then add the template bushing (guide) to it. The Porter Cable style bushings come threaded so they can be used also. The guide bushings shown are the Bosch metaal variety.
Hope this helps.

@LBussy ...


So ... is the RA1126 Quick Change Template Guide Adapter something that allows quick change (looks like a twist lock) of Bosch guides? Yes...

And then is the RA1100 Threaded Router Template Guide Adapter an adapter that goes into the quick change, to allow use of more "standard" guides? Yes...

You know ... whatever you want, it IS on the Internet.

I think I know the answer to this but ... with these I will be able to use PC and Bosch bushings, right?

Yes Lee, the quick change adapter was made for the Bosch steel guide bushings(best for rough construction) and later the adapter was added to allow the use of PC style guide bushings. Brass bushings are the best choice since they do not loosen like the steel PC style ones do.

Shown is the RA1125 set.
