Default Guide bushings

After the advice from here I went ahead and bought a set of the universal guide bushings in brass, I new they wouldn't fit my Erbauer router but hoped they might well fit the cheap Black & Decker KW850, the answer is, Almost, the adapter plate is a millimetre or so too small to fit directly to the router base, I take it that now my only way round the problem is to make new base plates for both routers that will accept the silverline universal adapter ring and guide bushings ? or is there another universal kit that has an adapter to fit either the B&D or Erbauer routers ?

Hi Keith

Check with Axminster for those Leigh adaptors. One or other of them should fit the Erbauer.

Cheers

Keith, You can easily build your own sub base plates for using guide bushings. There is a sticky thread in this section about it and a video with similar photos and instructions will be online very soon.
