Default Inner plate on router base

Good Morning
This might sound like a stupid question, but why is there different size inner plastic plates. Surley one hole big enough for all bits would suffice. Why I am asking is because I want to build my own router table. I am going to make a new stainless steeel base plate as the one I have(Ryobi) ist not a very nice one. Living in South Africa we dont get all the spares as in europe or to USA.
Thanx

The different size plates that cover the holes are for different size bits. If you use a smaller bit in a large hole, the wood has a tendency to "dip" into the hole and mess up the cut as well as create a DANGEROUS situation. The part could be pulled into the hole and your fingers pulled into the spinning router bit.
Always use the plate that allows just enough clearance for the bit. This will give your stock lots of support and a nice finish to your cut.

The additional support of a the ring closeby decreases tearout on the bottom side, too... akin to a "zero clearance" throat plate on a saw.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!
