Used for guiding the router when using a template. The guide bushes fit directly to Makita routers. These bushes fit the Makita 3612C, RP1801X or RP2301FCX 1/2" routers only.

Fits router exactlyIf you have a compatible router (I have a Makita FCX2301) these fit precisely and work well (I didn't notice any size problem as reported by someone else). Recommended.

Fits the Makits, but it's not exactly 16mmI bought the 16mm version so I could couple it with the Trend Guide Bush collar (http://www.axminster.co.uk/trend-guide-bush-collars) for my 3612C. It fits the router perfectly, but the guide bush doesn't fit. Since there isn't another option for the Makita, I'm currently (carefully) sanding back the paint (not enough) and the metal (hope I can keep it round) so that it mates nicely with the guide bush. I did buy the smaller guide bush (7.93mm) and the trend guide and these fit perfectly snug (same company so if they didn't it would be silly) so I'm thinking (haven't got my calipers to hand) that it's this that's fractionally off.
