If you can turn the router 180 degrees, and alignment is different…
1. Sub-base slipped since it was centered.
2. Template slipped from clamps / carpet tape etc.
3. Guide bushing is bent or damaged.
4. O-ring in template bushing is worn or missing. This is what holds the ring on the bushing when cutting inlays.

I couldn’t see any damage and out of frustration borrowed a set of guides. In the process remounted the collet and base plate. The borrowed guide was right on. Tried mine and it was not. Problem solved but I can’t figure out what happened to mine that I have had and used for years. What is a joke though is the borrowed set was from Harbor Freight and probably cost a 1/4 of mine. Thanks Willie.
