Product Details

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 premium 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.

This premium universal router base comes with the base, self centering set up tool and two steel mortice pins. The base has a lifetime warranty and in the event that it fails due to a material or manufacturing defect it will be replaced free of charge.

Simon Kirk

Brilliant, machined perfectly. Nearly bought the trend one, so glad I got this one it's flawless.

Nick Woloszczuk

Just what i needed, aligned to the old base, drilled holes and countersunk. Fits perfect to the old router and centered using the alignment tool. Now i have easy swaps between bushings when routing signs...

Mat Kinsella

Premium quality router base, the phenolic has a really nice feel to it and it moves freely over my work.

James Bridges

Bought because I wanted to use the brass guide bush system with my router. Very easy to install.
