Thumbs up Marvel 40 Router Plate

I sent away to MLCS for a auxiliary router plate made for the Marvel 40 router that would accept PC guide bushings. They responded with their usual fast delivery. I was disappointed when I saw the item was a "universal" type, with 8 mounting holes of which none were for the Marvel 40. They supplied a Xerox paper that was to be a drill template along with instructions to drill your own mounting holes. Xerox copies do not follow true and, needless to say, by using it I blew the hole alignment. I contacted MLCS and told them of my plight. Good as they are, they offered a merchandise credit. I thought about it and then took the plate out of the trash. I was going to make it work. I took the plate and loosely mounted a guide bushing on it, fastening it with tape on the ring nut side. I then took the original plate off the Marvel 40 and, its hole diameter being the same size as the outer ring of the guide bushing, slid it on top. After properly aligning the plates, now in a diagonal form, I clamped them together and using the original plate holes as guides, drilled the 5/32" through holes. I unclamped them, drilled in the counter bore (I know this is reverse of procedure) and everything fit perfect. I can now use my guide bushings in the Marvel 40. Just one more note---the plate they supplied was only 3/16" thick and the screws required a 1/8" counter bore (kind of a close tolerance). Hope this helps anyone who is considering its purchase and NO I did not ask for a merchandise credit since I am using their plate, albeit not in its exact form.

Glad that you got it working, There is nothing more unnerving than looking at the jig with a hole not aligned. Sounds like you made the perfect fix.

Hi JoeZ

Glad you got it done, here's just one more way to get it done easy just pickup a base plate for a PC router ( about 4.oo at just about any where the PC routers is sold ) remove the base off the Marvel 40 and line up the center holes tape it down to some scrap and dill out the new mounting holes and your done...
