If you're using a fence if you rotated the router during the cut, and the bit wasn't centered, the cut could be wavy

The Bosch RA1151 is a better deal since one end is 1/4" and the other is 1/2" so you are able to use it on both collets.

So bases don't center themselves with their screw hole layout? And even if not, when would it even matter given what bases do?

If you are using a fence, aren't you using the flat part of the router base against the fence? Seems hard to rotate the router that way. Thanks in advance for helping me understand why people use this. I just can't figure it out.

I think its for using router bases that are adjustable or universal for multiple router brands

I'll try to explain the use case i've seen:

I think we've established that It is for when switching out sub-bases on the router to ensure that sub-base is lined up correctly. The second picture on amazon shows the clear acrylic/plastic sub-base, and there is some adjustment/give in how those screws tighten onto the metal router base itself. This ensures that, when tightening, a sub-base is centered on the hole in the router. The result? When you run the sub-base along the fence it won't matter if you rotate the router (and sub-base along with it) to create the "wavy cut" that a previous poster mentioned. This is especially important for round sub-bases that are larger than the diameter of the metal router base.
