10 piece Router Template Guide Set No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I have had this set for quite a few years now, & I highly recommend this set.

It comes with an adapter, so if you want to make your own router plate, or table,

it will be 100% accurate if installed correctly.

The fine threaded nut makes for easy hand tightening, & I’ve never had them come loose.

Fits any router that accepts standard 1-3/16” OD threaded guide bushing

Machined solid brass construction

Includes 7 template guides: 1/4” ID x 5/16” OD; 9/32” ID x 3/8” OD; 11/32” ID x 7/16” OD; 13/32” ID x 1/2” OD; 17/32” ID x 5/8” OD; 21/32” ID x 3/4” OD and 5/8” ID x 51/64” OD Plus 2 lock nuts and adapter
1.25 mm threads

20 threads per inch

ITEM 95160-2VGA

$19.99

Thanks Dick: I have that set also, I question the length of some of the adapters and have hads to grind some of mine a little shorter because the template was not as thick as the guide was designed for.

Overall a great set.

You’re welcome Eric.
I think I only paid about $12.99, it was so long ago.<(;O}#

Karson,

I had to shorten up some of mine also for the application I needed them for.

$19.99 for this set sounds pretty good – just wish we had a HF or that they would ship internationally. – thanks for posting the information

+1 on this set, especially when it goes on sale or you have a 20% off coupon. Having more than one set is a good idea because you can grind down the length as Karson suggested and have a lot of choices when you need a bushing.

The one thing missing from the kit is a centering cone but those are pretty easy to make or you can use a dovetail bit as a makeshift centering cone.

It’s a pretty good deal isn’t it?

One of the problems I have with not only this set but other makes as well; the largest guide will limit the number of cutters that can be used. Most people would use the guides with a straight cutter inserted; where most of the cutters I wish to use are Face/Edge cutters and one in particular was 32mm wide, where the majoriiy are 25mm wide

I bought one to use with my dovetail jig. It worked great, seems like a good addition to any router.
