I recently popped for the expensive Woodpecker plate for my Triton. I had to drill the hole for the lift crank, but that was pretty easy (use a rat tail file to smooth the edges). I got it because of the twist lock insert. Many plates require unscrewing the insert--don't lose those screws! The twist lock makes changing bits fast and easy . I use Sommerfeld matched bit sets so I don't have to reset the bit height. The Woodpecker is a bit thicker and larger than the Rockler plate it replaced, so I got the Woodpecker template as well. I think there are a couple of other brands with the twist lock (bayonet) insert, but for me the extra cost of the Woodpecker plate was worth it. Mark and drill the holes carefully. With aluminum plates, drilling is 't much of a chore, but do use a drill press if you can, and countersink the holes to get the mounting screws below the surface.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
