The router pkg consists of the fixed base router and the plunge router. I purchased these items a short while ago and, to my dismay, found a hole in both bases that i could park my truck in!! I had heard some rumors earlier that there were problems re: this condition. adaptors and adaptors for the adaptors… IT’S TRUE!!! I had to buy the RA1126 Template guide adaptor which i thiought would allow me to use PC template bushings…. It doesn’t! Another adaptor to fit within the RA1126 has to be purchased!!! I feel that Bosch should supply the RA1126 as part of the initial purchase. If only to allow the use of Bosch template bushings. By the way, the R!1126 does allow one to make use of Bosch’s unique template bushings. In the end, it wound up costing me another $50.00 bucks to have the Bosch router with template bushings – both Bosch brand, and PC type. Live and learn. I hope this helps other jocks re: Bosch routers. Don’t get me wrong!! I like the router. It’s just that there was so much after purchase effort (and money) to get template bushing usage.
