I went to the Woodworking show last March. I bought a set of router guide bushings. They were brass and looked like a decent set. I did not have a use for them yet. I was working my way up to a plunge router. So the set sat in a drawer for 6 months.
Well today I bought a DeWalt 611 with a plunge base. Opened it up and read, (yes I read the directions) the owner’s manual. Then I took it to the workshop to play with the guide bushings. The bushings fit perfectly, but the locking ring is the wrong thread size. It came with 2 locking rings, I believe they are 32 tpi. The bushings are 20 tpi. This is as close as I can measure with a ruler and steam coming out of my ears. Tomorrow I’ll stop by Rockler to see if I can get just a locking ring or maybe I’ll be springing for another whole set.
I never thought to try screwing the pieces together when I bought them. Oh well, buyer beware.
