I'm almost afraid to say this because Charles may say I'm wrong ,( he is the pro.when it comes to Freud stuff ) ,,, but here goes.
The kit FT2020 should have all you need, the big adapter ring pops in place then select the guide you want to used and put it in place and use the lock ring to hold it in place...
I don't have the FT2020 kit but I have the item below and it works on my Freud routers... http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=95160
About this Template Guide Kit
The Freud template guide kit features guides and an adaptor machined out of special brass alloy for precision and long life. The set contains seven templates with outer diameters measuring 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 5/8, 51/64, and 3/4-inches -- plus an adaptor plate and lock nut, and a sturdy carrying case. The included adapter plate can be used with the FT2000E router, as well as many other popular routers that accept universal template guides.
This adaptor plate can be used with Freud FT1700VCE, FT2000E, FT2200E, and FT3000 routers as well as many other popular routers. Template guides will work with any router or adaptor which accepts universal template guides. http://www.amazon.com/Freud-FT2020-T...3900124&sr=8-1
