The adapter is so you can use the guides (bushings) of the popular Porter Cable sizes. Either that, or you just end up buying the ones that are Bosch specific.

You can purchase the adapter through most places that sell the Bosch router, but I think Bosch was supplying it at one point with the 1617 (I have not confirmed that). I think I remember it being 10 or 15 bucks though.
