Hey LJs, I inherited what I believe is a baseplate from a Vermont American guide bushing kit. PN: 29GD-375. So the question is what aftermarket bushings can I use for this baseplate? The ID of the thru hole in the plate is 1.725” and on the router side of the plate there is a counterbore at 2” dia. Any suggestions?

I suggest you save that base plate for times when you need the large hole, and get a baseplate with the “Porter-Cable standard” 1 3/16” recess. Lots of after-market bushings fit this pattern.
