FULL DESCRIPTION
As there is no industry standard for the bases of routers, it can sometimes be difficult to match your router with suitable guide bushes, when using routing jigs such as dovetail, sign writing and hinge jigs. This universal router base will fit all leading brands of router, allowing you to fit industry standard brass guide bushes which come in a wide variety of diameters and depths. Measuring 165mm in diameter and 8mm in depth, the universal base is made from a special phenolic which is extremely hard wearing and offers minimal levels of friction to ensure a smooth passage.

To attach the universal base to your router, it is simply a case of using the supplied self-centering tool to centre the base to your router and then drilling the base to match the screw holes on the underside of your router. The base is pre-drilled with six mortice pin mounting locations and by inserting the two steel mortice pins, one either side of the centre hole, you can self-centre the router over the edge of your workpiece for routing mortices. There are a number of universal router bases on the market that have a multitude of holes (like a Swiss cheese) drilled into the base in an attempt to match up to every brand of router available, however in our experience, the unused holes have a tendency to clog with dust and swarf and subsequently cause the router to sit unevenly on the workpiece.©
