Trend Universal Sub-Base is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It DOES fit the Bosch TE600 I bought this so I could try a better range of guide bushes on my Bosch GKF600 ¼" Palm Router fitted with the BTE 600 Plunge Base. Everyone says it won't fit (including Trend and Bosch) but I've got mine fitted fine. It uses 2 of the 12mm long screws which I've tightened with removable thread locking compound. I used the plastic guide peg supplied, then just rotated the sub-base until at least 2 holes lined up. It takes all the Trend bushes and has made my router (already fitted with the Bosch Professional TE 600 Plunge Base) much more usable. Others have said theirs were bent, but mine arrived totally flat. I'll just say that I'm 100% happy with the safety of mine, but always ensure you check for yourself and don't always follow the advice of some lunatic that you read on the internet :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What are Trend playing at? I purchased this to use with my Trend router on a Trend dovetail jig. It's pretty shocking. If you can find an alternative that isn't this sub-base then buy it. The base needs flattening before use- this can be done with a large flat file. The alignment template and pins are made from plastic. What the?! plastic?! Plastic moves. The alignment template and pins are useless. I ended up eye-balling the router cutter to the centre which is far more accurate that the template provided. Once you get past the initial setting up, don't expect this sub-base to last long. The plastic they used is cheap, vacuum formed rubbish. If the'd used a material like Tufnol, i probably wouldn't be writing this. Like i said at the start, if you can find an equivalent sub-base which isn't trend, buy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Universal router base Good value for money router base, cheapest I could find from Screwfix. I was struggling to find a suitable replacement base for my old trusty freud router. The many screw holes in the base meant I could get a accurate fit and when used with the router bush - sold separately can be used for accurate cutting with a jig or guide rail of kitchen worktops

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I'd read the reviews In theory this is a great idea, in practice it's badly executed. Like most reviewers I am unable to tighten the guide bush into the base or remove it as the captive (!!!!!!!!) nuts are anything but. I now have a useless piece of expensive plastic and a guide bush I will have to drill out to be able to use. If I could give zero stars it would be too many.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Impressed Purchased to allow use of a 30mm bush to cut a kitchen worktop. Wasn't to impressed with the base and didn't accurately line up to the holes in my router base. When fitting the plastic aligning guide, the two screws were snug in the captive nuts in the base, but managed to align it okay. However, once I had removed the alignment bush, and installed the 30mm guide bush, also Trend, one screw tightened okay, the other however, increased in resistance before fully tightend to the point where the captive nut started to spin within the base itself. So the bush was not fully secure, and couldn't tighten or remove the offending screw. Very disappointed in the quality of this from a company as prestigeous as Trend. If anyone from Trend ever reads this, as a time served engineer, I think the threads in the brass captive nuts need reaming out ever so slightly to allow the screws to be inserted without the associated resistance. Fair play to Screwfix, returned for credit with absolutely no quibble at all. Just wish I had taken heed of the reviews already written.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Distorted & didn't fit router This base is plastic and had long-range distortion (whole base slightly curved) and short-range distortion (plastic distorted around each mounded hole). Also didn't fit my Makita FCX2301 router (get Makita's guide bushes - they fit tightly into the router with no multibase needed).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid This Product Bought 2 No of these Unibase, Returned the first due to rotating captivated nuts, lost one days work!!! Second unit also faulty, usable but the guide bush can not be removed without damaging the Unibase or Guide Bush with more time lost. Lots of money spent on Trend Jigs seems that lots more will be spent to use them. I'll look for alternatives. I won't be buying any more Trend Products. Pity I'm stuck with the ones I already have!!!
