Santa was pretty nice to me this year and left a Bosch MRC23EVSK combo fixed and plunge based router under my tree. The router is a beauty but my question is about the Bosch template guide system.
Of course it didnt come with the RA1126 quick change template guide adaptor which you need to have in order to be able use the RA1100 threaded template guide adaptor which you need if you want use a standard threaded template guide (somehow an adaptor for an adaptor just doesnt seem like a design award idea).
Anyway, I’m going to be routing some holes using a 32mm shelf pin drilling jig so I need the bit to be accurately centered in the guide so the holes dont have any variation. The quick change system seems fine for most routing but seems a little sloppy for really accurate holes. I can use a centering cone to get the bit centered but I’m concerned there may be a slight amout of slop in that quick change system.
Any advice or opinions?
