BasePlate/BushingSet™ - Replacement Parts

Forget fumbling with tiny bolts and screwdrivers! The TurnLock™ concept turns changing guide bushings, and installing router attachments into a simple matter of a 1/4 twist. With the Milescraft BasePlate/BushingSet™, just align the TurnLock™ bushing inside the TurnLock™ base and twist.  The cogs on the outside of the bushing slip into the slots on the inside of the base, locking the bushing in place.  Reverse the process to remove the bushing. The TurnLock™ Base Plate is clear and greatly increases the user’s visibility of the work area and allows for more consistent alignment of router bits with any template shape. The TurnLock™ base attaches to any of the Milescraft router attachments via the same principle…align and twist.

It may just be my old BD router, but getting a really good alignment is not as simple as it maybe could be. I have made bushings from nylon nuts to put in the slots to cut down the slop between my scr...

The turn lock system is easy to use. Sometimes the bushings stick a bit when removing them from the base plate. Maybe a little oil or sanding would help. I'll have to work on it.
