Leigh Guide Bushings

The guide bushing (also known as a template guide) is the primary link between your router and every Leigh joinery template. The guide bushing guides the movement of your router to insure you make a tight joint.

Leigh's current guide bushings are based on the "universal" (or Porter-Cable style)guides used by many routers. Unfortunately, many router manufactuurers use their own guide bushing systems. If your router doesn't use this style of guide bushing, you'll need to get a guide bushing adapter to mount it to your router.

Milling operations with Leigh dovetail jigs use the first five bushings listed below: e7, e8, e10, 711C & 716C. We also stock some older and specialty bushings.

Please Note: These guide bushings are not used with the Leigh Isoloc templates or with the F1600 Finger Joint Template. Those templates use the Leigh Variable Guide bushings (VGS).
