Default Oversize guide bushings?

Is anyone aware of oversize (OD > 1-1/2") guide bushings, whether for the PC mount, OP mount, or a specialized plate, such as a Milescraft? I'm looking for offset using a 1/2" bit, so an ID of 5/8" or more is good.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

I'm not sure what it is that you're after Jim because you haven't stated the off-set that you're attempting to achieve. As you well know, in order to calculate the off-set, we need to know the cutter diameter AND the OD of the template guide, we can then use the formula: OD of guide minus dia. of cutter divided by two.
For critical offsets where even a mixture of Imperial and metric guides/cutters doesn't help, I sleeve guides as shown in this shot, I also do it to achieve a critical diameter of bearing.

Hi Jim

You lost me too, you can make a off set ring any size you want it to be...

Harry... I don't have a need right now. When I was installing the pin router arm in my table top I could have used some though, so I was just looking for choices for the future.

BJ... You're right, and with the Jasper's ability to cut from 1"D to 7"D by 1/16ths, making my own would be a breeze.. Cancel my question. I'll just make them as I need them.
