Default Guide bushing

Hello everyone,
I am in the process of learning to us my Rockler dovetail jig. I have an older Craftsman model # 315.275040 plunge router. The brass bushing included with the dovetail jig does not fit into anything that came with my router. Does anyone know if Craftsman or anyone offers a plate that will hold the bushing so that I can use the jig?

You're Welcome Brooster

I'm sure you will like it , it's the only bolt on plate that I know about that will let you use a 2" diam. router bit without removing the base plate and still use your brass guides as well.. I have it on almost all of my routers because it works so well and easy..many say they have a hard time getting the brass guides tight in the router the Milescraft plate takes that error out, with just a quick turn the guide is off the router and you get your hand right on the brass ring nut very easy..why make a easy job hard, I say..
