    A few models require the plastic sole plate to be removed from the router: to install a guide bush, to mount a plate to accept bushes, or to set the bush in a moulded socket in the base. The two Tritons are of this type, as are the Chinese-made SIP and JCB models. It seems that the base has to be removed. I inclued a pic .

    Hi Joel. Thanks again but think it is a bit too much for me so have decided to return the SIP and buy a macallister as it is the same price but already has the 30mm bush. Regards. Allison

Look up 30mm router guide bushings on the web. Do a search. You'll find several sites that carry a 30 mm bushing.

Testimonial: "Hi Joel. Thanks for the reply but I have already done this and found lots of them but also lots of reviews from other users saying they can't find any that will actually fit the SIP"

SOURCE: can i use 30mm guide bush to cut worktop with a

Yes you can. You probably would want to do some test cuts in the wood that you are using.
If your worktop is hardwood then each pass will have to be maximum 1/8". It will take many passes depending on the thickness of the worktop. This is assuming that a carbide bit is being used. The smaller the diameter of the bit the less resistance. Also using a 1/4" shank on the bit and the HP of the router determines how fast the router will cut.

Freud ft2000 switch


You can find a part diagram and parts list on-line. Just enter the model #. The variable speed control module is no longer available. You can bypass the control, and connect the router directly. You will no longer be able to control the speed, or turn off the router. I used a variable 15A control box instead. It will function the same way.
You may want to just replace the router with a new up-to date router, I just purchased a 2 1/2HP Skil router kit tah has a 1/2 chuck, and both a plunger base a flat base, for $100 at a big box store.

Makita template guide does not fit


My Makita router arrived with a couple of template guide bushes of different sizes. The size of guide bush chosen for use with a particular template will be dictated by the template - stock templates usually state the size of guide to be used with that template and mostly these are generally so common sizes a good router is supplied with them, from memory I think the smaller of my guides is something like 17 mm.

Template guide bushes are flimsy and easily damaged and so it is expected router users will be buying spares and other sizes. They are almost universal but not quite and router users are quite adept at minor modifications to make things fit, and not just guide bushes but also router tables, adaptors for various tasks and so forth.

I suggest you take a glance through a few catalogues featuring router accessories, including Makita of course.

HI, i am looking for a guide bush to use in conjuction with a hinge jig, is there a special one that i need. Kind Regards Darren


I assume you are asking about a router guide bushing, although this question was filed under chain saws. The guide bushing size has to correspond to the bit size to get the right size cutout for the hinge template. Here's a set: http://www.grizzly.com/products/Brass-Bushing-10-pc-Set/H3134

Dovetail leave a 'light gap'


This may not be related to your jig. It may be movement in the vertical axis resulting from:

  1. The router bearings being worn allowing the bit to move up and down.
  2. The router bearings worn allowing the spindle to deflect side to side which changes the bit height slightly (cuts on the edges, making the cut a hair deeper).
  3. The router collet or router spindle worn, allowing the bit to move during cuts.
  4. The jig guide plate deflecting or no longer flat.
  5. Excess vibration in the router causing the wood to move in the jig.

To check the bearings; try routing the cut with a straight bit first to clear the wood for the dovetail bit. Then cut with the dovetail bit (a new one preferably) using very light feed pressure. Is the joint tighter? If so then the bearings are worn. Have the router serviced or replace it.

Check the end-play by pulling on the router shaft, does it wiggle slightly in and out? If so this is your problem. Have the router serviced or replace it.

Be sure the wood is flat and the faces planed parallel, if they aren't the dovetail line will be straight but when you assemble there will be slight end gaps in sections of the dovetail.
