”Cut perfect inlays with this Inlay Kit and your shop-made template. Simply slide on the bushing to rout the cutout and then remove the bushing to cut the perfectly matched inlay. Includes a 1/8” solid carbide spiral cutter and alignment pin. Fits Porter Cable® routers and other routers with template guide adapters.”
Everything was there and fit my new Trend T4 just fine although there were two things that bothered me.
#1 – the alignment pin is 8mm! (not 1/4”), – I am glad the Trend came with the 8mm collet.
#2 – the alignment pin would not fit the template guide! It was too big by 5 thousands.
I rectified this by chucking the alignment pin in the router and set the speed towards the low end and used a fine file to turn the pin down until it just slid into the guide.
Although I am not totally dissatisfied with this kit, I really thought Shop Fox would have a little better Q.C.
I notified the vendor as an FYI, I did not ask for a replacement as everything is working fine now.
