Milescraft Model 1201 BasePlate / Bushing Set, boring but good. No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I had to keep my stools in storage for over year after tearing down one shop then having a big delay in starting the new shop due to health issues. When I took all my stuff back out of storage I found I was missing (i.e. I lost) some little do-dads here and there. One of them was some of the accessory pieces to my router.

How we got by without the internet I do not know, but after a little Google magic I had this product shipped to me and all was right with the world.

There made of plastic, I was wondering how good they were? I’ve seen them for a good price but still passed it up. I guess you chose between quality or versatility.

I had the plastic set that came with my sign crafter kit I wore the 5/8 bushing out on another project. Now I have the upgrade kit. It came with plastic bushing plate and brass bushings. I like that better.

Milescraft also has metal nose bushings available for the TurnLock system. They’re quite a bit more durable, but a bit harder to find… They come in a set of bushings, or they come in a kit with the Base Plate included.

As for the durability and convenience of the system itself, I can attest. I’ve been demonstrating the Milescraft Sign Pro and Design/Inlay Kit most weekends since October at The Woodworking Shows and haven’t needed to change out any of our Base Plates yet. Countless bushing changes have been performed and each bushing still locks into place perfectly on center.
