Default Bosch GKF600

Hi all

I am new to wood working and one of the things I want from this little router is the ability to make holes to take pins to support shelves, but I need a bush in the plunge base so as to use the template. The Bosch bushes are expensive and not that good a quality, as well as using their quick fit system, I would rather use other bushes so what are people on here doing and any recomendations. I have heard that you can get screw in bushes.



thanks Roy

Hi Roy.

I would look at trend tools and their universal base?

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

They have a large selection of guide bushes.

More than most US sets.

Hi Roy, Have a look at this set of bushes http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...DL._SX385_.jpg
This is one of several sets of Bushing that I have.
I use them in a bosch GOF1300CE. Snap the flange (Adapter) into the quick fit on the Bosch then you screw what ever size bushing you want to use into that.

Regards
Harold

You can buy a clear sub base plate for your Colt fixed base that accepts PC style guide bushings for a few dollars. This is the easiest way.
