I recommend the 3/8" "phenol " for the big router and a 1/4" one for the 2 1/4 HP routers but I don't recommend ALUM. they will put black marks on your stock once the finish wears off...it's takes no time for it to wear off..
and it's nasty to get off the stock..
The one below it's both in one plate 1/4" and 3/8" you can use the 3/8" lip or make a diff. rabbit for the 1/4".. - Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices
Ok, thanks for all the input. I'm convinced base plates are the way to go. Now, 1/4 " or 3/8" thickness? Does it make a difference? Aluminum, phenol? any company recommendations here on the base plate inserts ?
