So I got myself a Whitside inlay template kit to do some inlays. The problem is it doesn’t fit my routers. I have 2 routers – a dewalt (which is almost dead) and a new triton. I picked up the adapter kit for it today so it will work with the Porter Cable-compatible bushings.
The problem is that the bushing doesn’t fit either of them. It seems like the threads are just too “thick” to get through the base plate. In fact, I have a set of porter cable bushings which fit the routers ok, and the lock nut threads onto the Whiteside bushing just fine.
Has anybody else had a problem like this?
I’m tempted to just lightly file the threads on the whiteside bushing to reduce the diameter enough to get it into the base plate. I could also use some sandpaper to do this instead of filing.
