Product Information:

This unit is not only pre-drilled for more than ten router models, it also includes a cleverly designed centering pin that centers the guide to the router collet. Comes complete with screws and installation instructions.

Frustrated by a router with a base plate that uses a limited range of hard to find guide bushings? Even worse is one that offers no means to center those guides once they are installed. This unit is not only pre-drilled for all the routers listed below, it also includes a cleverly designed centering pin that centers the guide to the router collet. Simply install a Porter-Cable style guide, use the centering pin to line-up the base plate concentric to the collet, install your bit, and rest assured your bit is following the path the template or jig intended. This set-up is an absolute must for precision operation of dovetail jigs! Fits the following models: Sears Models 315.275 000-100-110, 315.175 070-040-050-060 RyobiMakita 3612 and 3621 Milwaukee 1615/1616/1619 series, HitachiBosch 1615 and 1617/1618 series, DeWalt DW616/618 series, DW621, and DW625, Fein FT-1800 Elu 177Porter Cable 690 series, 7529, and 8529 Freud FT2000E.

    Dewalt mounting less than optimal

    Comments about Router Base Plate with Centering Pin :

    I was hoping to use this plate as the primary base on my fixed base router, however the plate uses the 3 hole mounting pattern (instead of the 4 hole). This puts 2 of the screws into the edge guide rail mounts and the third screw is too long to tighten in the remaining blind threaded hole. I haven't figured out how to effectively cut the shortest screws in half.

    The holes in the router base plate lined up perfectly and the centering pin made it quick and easy to align the plate perfectly to the bit. Awesome product and very easy to install and calibrate.

    Comments about Router Base Plate with Centering Pin :

    This base plate is a must if you hope to do accurate pattern routing using porter cable guide bushings because it insures that the bit and the guide are concentric no matter what part of the guide bushing is against the template.

    Good and flat

    Comments about Router Base Plate with Centering Pin :

    OK, first of all I was quite disappointed with how NOT flat the baseplate of my "top brand" routers are. This base plate is a bit expensive, but add it to the overall cost of a new router. It's well worth it. Especially crucial if used with a dovetail jig. This baseplate if flat. The cutout for guide bushings is a near perfect fit. The only disappointment I had with the (two) centering pins I now have, is that I can see how much runout there is in my router collets/spindle. Better to know than not to know, none the less.

    Comments about Router Base Plate with Centering Pin :

    I bought this base simply because it was transparent--in order to see my work. It fit my Porter Cable router perfectly and makes the work easy to see. I don't know why all routers don't have clear plastic bases.

    Works right out of the packaging on the Bosch 1617 EVSPK plunge base without elongating or countersinking the mounting holes.

    This base fit my 15 year old Craftsman router perfectly. I could not find a base from [@] for my router that would handle standard template guides (even though I bought the guide set from [@]). This was a good find!
