Yep. Even my router uses them.

Rockler One Plate

I have used this board I bought at Rockler, with PC type bushings and is perfect.

Did not find this board again at Rockler.

MikeMa I have this on one of my plunge bases for my 1617 router. Works great, and stays centered.

Buy Router Base Plate with Centering Pin at Woodcraft.com

oldwoodenshoe I have both the Bosch PC bushing adaptor and the Bosch bushings for my Bosch router. Both work well.

MT Stringer I am using Harbor Freight knockoffs of the Porter Cable style bushings with my Bosch. The first adapter screws to the housing. The second adapter snaps into place and is held there by the first one.

The bushings are then inserted and locked down with the tightening ring. I haven't noticed any play in the setup.

Quillman Seems PC/DW collars, in spite of their shortcomings, are the defacto industry standard. Since you have them, try them, might be the answer and the cheapest way.

yes...
centering them and keeping them centered may become an issue...

Using PC bushings w Bosch 1617

This summer I bought 2 adapters from Bosch to allow me to use my existing PC bushing set which I bought 30 years ago and never opened the box. Would I have been smarter to use Bosch bushing set.
