Default Samona kit and their over sized bushing?

I must be doing something wrong. The odds are that the problem is me and not the product. Tel me what you think.
The Samona dovetail jig kit comes with a bushing that is around 1/4" deeper then the jig. The only way I've thought of fixing this is to cut the bushing down, or prop the router up.
Anyone have trouble with the Samona dovetail kit?

Cut the extension to ~1/32" less than the templet thickness.
A common neglect, shame on the supplier.

Thank you. I was having a hard time believing that the part was faulty. The lease they could have down was put that in the instructions; "cut bushing to desired height".

This is one of the reasons these 'clones' are so cheap........poor or non existent quality control.

Hello!

You could also not cut the guide nush and use a large sub-base 1/4" thick multiply or medium. It could give a better stability on the jig.
