Hello - I purchased recently a freud 5000 router table which came with a Freud 1700 router - problem the insert plate does not line up with the 1700 router. Have searched around Google trying to find one but no luck...any suggestions please

Thanks.

Hi Gavin - Welcome to the forum
I haven't seen to many plates predrilled for the 1700. That table was orginally marketed with the Freud 3000 so it is probably drilled for that one, if it's drilled.
Rockler has one in their "group B" plates but it is 8 1/4' by 11 3/4" so you need to make sure it fits the table.
Alternatively, you can redrill the plate you have using the plastic subbase plate as a template. You would end up with a couple of extra holes but that shouldn't hurt anything.
Good Luck

John Schaben

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
