Default bushing guide set for Rona brand router

Just found and ordered bushing guide set, complete with 2 11/16" adapter plate to fit both the plunge base and the standard.fixed sub-base plate for my Rona brand 2001520 - 12 amp router. These things were a Freud 2000 knock off but the sub-base plate were a different design, and would not accept the standard Porter Cable style guide bushings.
I found this set at Elite Tools, Lévis, QC or Peachtree Woodworking Supply in Norcross, GA also have the same thing

As you can see by the photos, the mounting of a standard guide bush without the adapter plate would be impossible, or I would have to make a new sub-base, by the way, these routers I would not recommend for any kind of production use, but for someone like my self, who wants to make wood chips fly these things got the grunt to do just that, not to mention soft start as well.

Having the guide bushing set will add another dimension to your router use.

Gordon;

You'll have to get a sub base for the bushing set that will fit your router. There are so universal bases that a number of retailers carry.

Hi Bob, thanks, I have been thinking about that, thought maybe I would make my own sub-base, as this router is not made any more.
The guide bushing kit I found is available from Peachtree Woodworking Supply in GA as well as Elite Tools in Quebec, this kit has an adapter that will fit via M5 bolts to the base of the plunge assy or the sub-base of the fixed assy, and then the guide bushing mounts inside of this adapter plate. The adapter plate its self is 2 11/16" OD with a 1 3/16" center hole to accept the guide bush, hope it all works I'll let you know.

Hi I just bought the same router used. I was wondering if you have a owners manual that you could maybe email to me? There are so many knobs and measures and turny hints I have no clue what they all do. If you could plz email me a copy or lead me to a copy somewhere plz my email is (deleted by moderation). Thank you in advance

welcome to the forums Tammy...

NOTE...
this is an old thread but just the same you may luck out...
strongly recommend you delete your email addy... posting your addy on a public forum isn't a real good plan...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Welcome Tammy. I deleted your email because it's not recommended due to what Stick said and as a result it is forum policy for a moderator to delete it if we see it. We have a private messaging system you can use when you get past 10 posts.

We have a manuals section on our home page but I'm not certain if there are any Rona tools on it. Most plunge routers share a number of features so if you look at the ones for other routers you'll probably recognize what some of yours are.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I've seen the brand they were promoting and it was named to sound like German made but was Chinese instead. It may not have worked out well for them because a search I just did only brought up Bosch, DeWalt, and B & D. I'm guessing that anything with a Rona tag on it was that brand.
