Rockler large blank plate bushing insert.....
Having a problem finding an 1 1/4" bushing to fit the 1 1/4" bushing adapter insert that fits my Rockler plate. That's the only size that fits my plate.
It was a large blank plate ( new style ) I drill to accept my Ryobi.
Just about every bushing set I am finding is either 1 3/16" or 1 3/8" OD.
Can I make one to fit out of the blank insert I purchased or am I SOL ?
Rockler doesn't even sell a 1 1/4" OD bushing, yet that's all they offer for the large plate ?
I have been getting very frustrated with them lately for things like this. I could understand if it were a discontinued model but its actually the new and improved model they just came out with.
If I absolutely have to I'll just make an insert out of acrylic and buy what ever insert set is most widely used by manufacturers so I'll be set for the vast majority of templates and what now.
Or I could just make 2 or 3 different sizes to cover them all. I have loads of sheet acrylic in 0.220 and 0.180 something thickness. I could take some weldon and glue up a couple pieces together, use the circle cutter on my drill press, blah blah blah........... if I have to. But damn it.... I shouldn't have to ya know.
