I have been making trivets for Christmas using the design by Incra with appropriate Incra guides. The problem I have noticed is that part of the cuts are slightly deeper than others. The router table is a Bosch table with the Bosh phenolic ( I think) base plate to which I have a Frued plunge router mounted with the Router Razier kit. The trivet being routed it 6" X 6" with the cut being stopped 11/16" from each edge. It is the last couple of cuts with the Incra fence furtherest away from the bit that has the problem. Is it most likely that I am getting some base plate deflection from the weight of my hand on top of the trivet when my hand is nearest or over the bit? I am thinking that if it were the throat insert deflecting then the problem would be at the spot that my hand passed over the bit and not the full length of the cut. The fence is square to the table top and the base insert is level with the table top. Any other ideas as to the cause? What would be the best way to isolate the cause?

"the weight of my hand on top of the trivet when my hand is nearest or over the bit?"
That maybe it,, by the way not the best way to do it bits sometimes like to come free and come up a bit to high and cut a slot in your hand.
Try this,, make a push block, that sits on top of the trivets with a handle dead center of the push block with a small block on the end of the push block to help push it over the bit...
something like the one below

Bj is right on. You need a push block to use. Never let your hands or fingers get close to a spinning bit.
You may wish to take a look at the OP spacer fences. They make trivets quite easily and safe.
