Guide Bushes not metric
« on: February 18, 2018, 07:24 AM »
I bought the shelf pin template from Woodpecker
Here in Europe with the metric system it’s hard to find a  3/8 inch bushing for the OF 1400
Does Festool sell this in the US. ?
Does anyone a idea where I can order that ?

The plate that comes with the 1400 allows for what is called a universal bushing - originally a Porter Cable sizing.  I am sure that the internet and Amazon will be able to provide a solution similar to this:  https://www.amazon.co.uk/Silverline-245122-Threaded-Template-Guide/dp/B0019JRL4O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1518957586&sr=8-1&keywords=3%2F8%22+router+guide+bushing

These bushings are hard to find. If you find imperial bushes you'll first need the Leigh Guide Bush Adaptor for the OF1400.
These are sold by Axminster. Unfortunately they don't sell 3/8" bushings.
I myself bought the Snappy shelfpin drill from the banned shop in Zandvoort Holland which is 3/8" and drills holes of 5 mm.
