Just acquired a Bosh trim router PR20. No accessories except for the fixed base and the edge guide.

I want to do some template routing. Do I want to buy the Bosch-specific bushings (I believe they call them “template guides” or do I want to work out a way to use the Porter-Cable bushings instead? I plan to get the plunge router base eventually.

Make or buy a baseplate that accepts the standard bushings.

Fuzzy, by “standard bushings”, do you mean the P-C bushings? Or do you mean those design by Bosch for this router?

I was referring to the P-C as “standard” ... but, you can make a baseplate that will accept whatever bushings you might already have i n order to save some $$$. I have several sets of the P-C style that I’ve picked up over the years, and I make every baseplate to accept those, unless I need something special where bushings are not an issue.
