Default Bosch router table - need guide bushings

I have a RA1171 Bosch Router table with a Bosch 1617EV Router.
I would like to be able to use guide bushings on the table but am having difficulty finding guide bushings that will fit any of the inserts.

Has anyone come across a solution for this??

Welcome to the forum, WM.

Usually, the smallest insert ring will take the PC style guide bushing.

Did you table come with the 3 insert rings?

The table did come with 3 inserts, but the PC bushing I have does not fit any of them. I have always thought of Bosch as a good mid range power tool company, so I find it odd they don't have bushings for their router table.

I'm sure there is a simple solution, I just need to find it. Appreciate the comments.

Thanks for the welcome to the forum.

What are the 3 hole sizes for your insert rings?

Does the smallest have a lip on the inside?

Hi WM, welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for or not, but this will allow you to use the PC style of bushing with your Bosch router.

WM. If I understand you correctly, you're trying to fit an adapter into the red plastic rings that fit into the mounting plate in the table. I don't believe the adapters will fit into them. The adapter is made to fit into the base plate of the router itself. If I misunderstand your question you can disregard my answer.

I own a RA1187 It comes with three inserts none of which will accept a PC bushing. I checked boschtools.com and cant find insert plates listed under accessories.I have always used another table when using pc bushing and never noticed till this post and I went and checked

Learning is an exciting adventure

I have seen the adapter that goes on the router. More interested in a bushing I can connect in the table inserts. Thanks for all the comments
