That is Kosher, but fixturing for that does take some time, care and respect for safety.
Much easier, on the face of it, to grind a 4$ ring to 1/8".

Hi Bob,

While your method will work, and I have agreed, Pat is correct in advising that the time and effort spent trying to get an overlay base plate to exactly the correct thickness is not productive.

I answered your question. "....could I just make a spacer (of maybe MDF and the size of the router base) to go over the standard bushing...." in the affirmative but you had not asked "is there another easy way I could achieve this"....Which I should have asked....

IMO, both ways will work, but one method is easier than the other.

I needed a shortened guide bush to use on a dovetail jig and a member from the Strathfield Men's Shed just cut it down on a metal lathe......

Sydney, Australia

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.
