|harrysin||I realise that this is an old thread but there is a far better way than a pin, THE FENCE, all tables have one.|

|gdonham1||Glad you figured it out. One more suggestion would be to get a plastic spacer you could put over the bolt. The plastic sleeve would protect your project from a dent in it. The starter and/or safety pin is to keep your project from spinning out of control when the wood is feed into the router bit. Sometimes you get the start of the spin and the starter/safety pin prevents the out of control but the work does slam into the pin.|

Bosch fulcrum pin
Quick and inexpensive solution (the best one is to purchase a bold as indicated by one of the contributors below): but if you want a substantial post not a thin bolt, you can do the following. Purchase the 4/20 fulcrum pin from Rockler for $4.99--they will send you two pins in the pack. Take one and gently thread it into one of the holes that is at about 2 O'Clock in the Bosch router table insert plate, taking your time to do a quarter turn, then a half turn, and then reverse it, and then continue again proceeding by quarter turns and reversing after about 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn until you have rethreaded the entire hole to suit the Rockler 4/20 fulcrum pin. A little patience with your vice grips and within 3-5 minutes you are done because the aluminum table top is really quite soft. Then you are left with one pin with a few rough marks from the vice grips and another that is perfect! They will both work quite well.

He spells poorly.
origin: before 1000; Middle English, Old English from Late Latin spelta, probably from Germanic; compare Old High German spelza (German Spelt)
Haven't seen this word used in decades. Perfectly legitimate word, just a rarity that stirred my curiosity.

This solves a minor irritation whenever I cut a bolt or threaded rod down; getting the thread to start in the nut after chopping it off.
