Question Router Plate Guide Pin

Where can I find a safety guide pin for sale?
My plate has a threaded hole for one, but either one was not included or I lost it.
I looked online and there are none to be had, unless there's a plate included.

Hi J -
Can you find a regular machine screw with that thread and just cut the head off of it? if the original had a sholder to tighten to in order to keep it from turning, you may have to put a nut underneath. If that won't work, tell us what brand the plate is and maybe someone here can find a source for you. Welcome to Router Forums! You have found a great site with some really fine folks who are always willing to help you in any way they can. I hope you'll browse some of the threads to get an idea of the wide scope of things that are covered here. Log in regularly and join in. No doubt you'll be able to contribute from time to time, too. It's a fun and informative group. Enjoy!

Hi jjr9999

You can make you own easy, take a trip down to the Ace Hardware and pickup some BRASS rod ( 3/8" dia.) pull your die set out of the tool box and thread one end then cut it off to the size you want it to be ,,,,you don't want to use a steel bolt for this job, if it comes out or rolls over to the router bit you don't want steel hitting steel ,,,your router bit...the brass rod is cheap and use it for many jobs in the shop,,,some Ace hardware do have brass bolts but most don't, so to say if you find one the right thread size and some untreated part on the brass bolt you can just cut it off on both ends so you have a short thread on one end and some blank on the other end,,,you don't want to use a bolt that has threads, it should be smooth so the stock can go by it without hanging up...

Below you will see the ones I made with some brass rod..
If it's worth doing it's worth it to do it right...

If yo don't want to make your own you can give MLCS a call and ask them if they have a replace one in stock, they sale the plates with them but don't just list just the pin...it's a free call 800 number with some luck they just may have one...
