Yesterday I omitted the fact that when making through dovtails with the 4210 jig I need both the 42046 and the 42040 bushings.
MORE THAN 2You should only need one,
Half-blind Dovetail TemplateIf he’s doing a variety. But if he’s doing standard 1/2 blind dovetails he only need one
I have a Bosch 1617 and also ram into that problem and had to cut my guide bushing down!I have a Porter Cable Dovetail Jig model 4210 that I have not used for sometime. Recently I tried to set it upgh. and ran in an issue with the guide bushing. It pertrudes below the template. I am using a Dewalt Router, I am suspious that the router base is not thick enough. Any help would be appreciated.
Identical set available in many different brands too - All Made in China.I tried the hack saw method of shortening the barrel of my PC aluminum guide bushing but the result was too ugly for my taste. Instead, I purchased the Wood River (Woodcraft) set of brass guide bushings. The Wood River set will work with template stock as thin as 1/4". I have been satisfied with my set. At the time I purchased the Wood River set, you could buy individual replacement guide bushings. If you drop a brass guide bushing, it may no longer be round. Don't ask how I know this.
