Product Information:

Are your machined dovetails or box joints just a little off from a perfect fit? If so, you need to take a hard look at your router template guide bushings. Many standard template guide bushings are stamped and lack the overall precision of a machined bushing. In some cases, even the bushings that are machined may have an outside diameter (O.D.) that is inaccurate or the bushing allows you to install your router bit off-center in the bushing. In either case, it is impossible to take full advantage of your precision jig's ability to produce perfect fitting joints. WHITESIDE Precision Template Guide Bushings are not only machined to exact O.D. tolerances but they also include a special alignment pin that mates with the inside diameter (I.D.) of the bushing and the router collet so the router bit will be absolutely on-center. The template guide bushing is constructed of brass and includes a matching knurled lock ring The 5/8" O.D., 17/32" I.D. guide bushing works with various dovetail jigs, box joint templates and hinge jigs. Consult your jig's instruction manual to confirm the size bushing needed

    Comments about Whiteside Precision 5/8" Template Guide Bushing :

    Perfect set. This is a precision tool for precise work. Took a micrometer to it, and it is spot on. On mine, the guide had two sections. One was maybe 20 thousandths undersize, and good for rough alignment. The other part was a perfect fit, with no extra clearance. Not tight, but no perceivable excess. It is easy to move the perfect fit part into position. You especially need this tool if you have a precise commercial router template, or one of those routers with a base that does not self-align well.

    Comments about Whiteside Precision 5/8" Template Guide Bushing :

    Both bushing and alignment pin are nicely made and well finished. The alignment pin, however, seems to be very slightly undersized. I think there would be few applications where this would be enough to make any difference; however, that could be an issue if absolute accuracy was required.
