Freddy,Hello and welcome to the router forums
This is from Wood Magizine.

To figure the offset, measure the outside diameter (OD) of the guide bushing tube and subtract the diameter of the bit. Next, divide this figure by 2 to determine the offset. In the example at right, subtract the 1/2" bit diameter from the bushing's 3/4" OD. You get 1/4". Now divide this number by two and you arrive at a 1/8" offset.

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

It's far better to remember the simple formula as shown above by John, this way once you become proficient at template routing you will be in a position to produce exact off-sets by mixing Imperial and metric bits/template guides.
