BOB, Bailey...or anyone else with this router, sorry I forgot to ask two more questions, both about the proprietary template guide system Bosch has developed for this router.
  1. Does the designation (17mm, 30mm etc.) refer to the inside or outside diameter of the template guide?
  2. What is the wall thickness of the part of the template guide that projects towards the workpiece?
Thanks if anyone can break out a pair of calipers and measure their template guides for me.

Best,

Dave M

Hello Dave.
With guide bushes, the size refers to the outside diameter.
Can't measure the wall thickness for you right now as I'm about to head onsite but the material is typically around 1.5mm.
If I have time later to dig one out I'll measure and update.

Hi Dave,

In answer to your questions:
1. Bailey is correct, guide bushes always refer to the outside diametre.
2. I went down to the workshop and measured our guide bushes, the 30mm is 2mm in thickness all other (smaller) guide bushes are 1mm in thinckness.

Hope this helps, keep us up to date.

Bob.
