    why use the trend guide bushes, as most places stock the dewalt's, and any way most will fit the 625 as standard !!!!just take the insert plate with you when you buy the next bushing!!!!!!

    It says on the Dewalt:

    Guide Bushing adapter plate accepts standard guide bushings for template work

    Does this mean the Trend guide bushes will fit without the unibase?

    Wolf your the man who will know?

    Thanks all

    Why do you want to use the Trend guide bushes?
  4. coggy

    coggy New Member

    I dont really, just that they have a large range of different sizes and i don't know where to find any others that will fit the Dewalt.

    Open to suggestions here?

    Any DeWalt dealer will have or get you guide bushes
    for the 625; you can get 10,24,27,30,40mm, all these need a guide bush holder part no DE6301 £15.20 and bushes which directly fit to base in 27,30,40mm

    coggy, i use the trend bushes purely because we have trend routers, more often than not i use the dewalt ones, like my earlier posting stated, they all come out of the same factory(well most bits do!!)
    and for those who want to know about other routers, (and please note, i am not being BIG HEADED, i just happen to own the workshop, so provide staff with the required tools to do the job!!!- and i am in seventh heaven when actually working with the timber!!!)
    i can give advise on the folowing routers.
    1) dewalt 625EK, 621EK and 615 - 2) trend T9 and 2x T3's- 3) elu/mof96 & 177- 4) P&C 7539 1/2hp version- 5) metabo ofe738- 6)freud ft2000VCE- 7) profixed head(old usa tool)-8) makita 3612 - 9) 2 little power devils -always got small round over bits in......
    and jim, we have had our TREND T9 for just over the year now, and is on it's second set of carbon brushes, which is not a good sign (all dewalts, freud and the metabo, are still on the original brushes, the 625 and 615 after over 4 years usage) they are all well liked, but for sheer longevity in a tool , you can not go wrong with the 625EK, so if you lot need some advise just feel free to just ask!!! one i would not recommend is the aussie triton, had a trial for our local supplier, what a total nightmare, and it can only take it's own brand of bushes and fittings...

    Credit where credit is due - Trend routers are designed and manufactured in the UK

    Dewalt are the business with regard to some tools but Trend have the market on routers.

    Do the right thing, buy british it is better and we have a duty to try it.

    Hey.... play with it, and if it doesnt do the biz get it credited

    And Wolf, I am not lying read the trend compatability chart as i did

    No direspect

    MARYBOB, dewalt tools are all made in the uk these days, and like most GLOBAL companies, they are staffed by the countries own people, the yanks may own the name as such, but the set up over here is purely british run and managed!and as the latest pts staes, trend are actually third in the routers sold to the 3rd quarter last year, mak's were second with DW's first, not by much, only about 5000 units sold!!!
    regards matt
    p.s. i watch these financial dealings(tooling/tooling manufacturers) as i have a vested interest in a few!!!!!

    Ok, sorry Wolf if this is repeating an old question. I know you said that they come from the same place but i want to make sure. I want to buy a couple of guide bushes on-line and i can't find any where that sell Dewalt.
    This is the router:

    So if i purchase some Trend guide bushes:

    Will these fit the Dewalt router?

    Just want to make sure guys, thanks everyone

    Sorry first post the second link was wrong

    i had not noticed"LOL" right now then young'un, if you go to and then go to the where to buy button, it will ask for your county,(once filled in) it will then ask for the town(with a dealer) closet to you , and then hey presto up pops the nearest c/w numbers and any web sites ok,
    and by the way the K denotes that it should also come complete with the heavy duty pressed steel case, so again, make sure it will before you part with your cash!!!!
    regards matt
    p.s.COGGY: if you post again tonight i will have to pick it up in morning as i am up early for work. see ya all!!!!
