Default I have an Idea !

it occured to me last night while in the workshop as i was marking out some new sub bases on some acrylic that it would be easier to make an adapter ? i.e. as I have a router that's difficult to get guide bush's for I have started to make some new sub bases, but with the router came one 30mm bush, it would easier to use this bush to make an adapter plate by copying the 30mm guide bush but making the center fit the pc style box of bushes i have bought ? has anyone else gone down this route ?
thanks
keith

Sure, but you could probably save yourself some trouble for 12 pounds.
Milescraft 1251 Base Plate / Bushing Set for Routers - EXCLUSIVE SALE PRICE!!: Amazon.co.uk: DIY & Tools
The kit includes an adapter for PC style bushes

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

bearing in mind i hate those bases, so full of bloody holes unless your stock is perfectly smooth they catch things and get moved about, just my opinion mate
and also I doubt with my luck that it will fit the Erbauer router anyway ? Plus I have already bought a set of bushes pc style ones so buying another set seems
a bit pointless

Hi Keith

The bloody holes holes will NOT hang up the router, if you can't find a set of holes to fit your bloody router I'm sure if not you can drill one or two so it will fit ,you just need two screws to hold it to the router, you can use your bloody guides with it and a real plus you can use up to a 2" OD bit without switching the base plate out, try that with a PC type plate that can only take on the PC type guides, plus the bloody base plate is 7" OD to help your bloody router stay flat on your the timber.. one BIG plus you can pop in the brass guide easy and get the ring nut tight and then put in back in place with just a 1/4 turn..

You can't have to many guides

Hi Keith,

I agree with Bob. I have 4 of those bases mounted on 3 craftsman router and a Bosch router. I have never had a hang up problem with them. The Milescraft base makes changing set ups very convenient.

Probably yourself for not using stock that is not smooth enough to prevent catches. If you are really worried about the holes catching why don't you chamfer the edges very slightly with a handheld countersink. That way you will have no bloody worries.

When something is advertised as being foolproof there is always a better class of fool that comes along to prove them wrong.
