Festool router 1400 guide bushing issue
« on: February 02, 2017, 01:32 PM »
I have a OF 1400 and I am having an issue with the guide busing. When I attached the bushing to the base plate, the router collet hits the bushing ring. It all seems to fit perfect but I can't get the depth of cut because of the interference. I am quite new to woodworking, is there something I am doing wrong?

Thanks

What diameter bushing? If the inside diameter of the bushing is less than the outside diameter of the collect the collet will hit the bushing. You need a longer bit if you need a great depth of cut.

From what you described, you might be using a bit that is too short for what you are doing, or you do not have it set in the collet correctly.
