Moderators......thanks a million for all these. I noticed that the third one down, "Mike - Using Guide bushings" (http://api.viglink.com/api/click?for...t%3E%3C%2Fb%3E doesn't work. And I wasn't able to find it in a search of the forums. Do you know if there is another link for that post? Thanks. Jim

It seems I never finish what I

Hi Jim the link is slightly wrong - there is a " in there which is in the wrong place

Try this link instead

Mods, could you please correct? Thanks

It should work now. It did when I clicked on it.

Being relatively new at this I hope this isn't a completely dumb question (although I read somewhere in here when I registered that the only dumb question is the one not asked). I was looking into buying a set of brass guide bushings and noticed that on some of them the actual guides (the part that sticks out and actually follows the template) were all the same length and on others they some were longer. What is the reason for this? And is there an advantage to one or the other? Thanks in advance for the help.

Mike, I just found your question. I prefer the guide bushings that are slightly under 1/4" height for all in the set. They can be used with all templates 1/4" and thicker. Many sets have the longer lengths for larger sizes and this requires thicker templates. I can see no logical reason for this.

The original Stanley door butt mortising template required a longer bushing to ride against the pins that guided the cut. And the PC type bushings were commonly used for the routers.

I have had to file off some of mine because of the new plywood thicknesses I use for templates cause them to be too long.
