Default Jessem Router plate

Hi everyone,

First time post: I am looking to source a 2001 Jessem Rout R Lift 1 insert plate with dimensions 298mm x 375mm x 4.75mm. I might accept a good quality second hand one if available. It is required to replace one which was bought back in 2001, which is now showing signs of wear and tear due to using spanners which were not suited to the depth of the router collet. They have made the edge of the insert rough to the touch and is now starting to score the timber. I have now managed to get angled spanners which should do the trick. Can anyone help with a source? I live in the UK but could negotiate a Paypal transfer if required.

Many thanks,
Paul 13

Hi Paul and welcome. Maybe you could just chamfer the edge of the plate instead of replacing it. It can be polished very smooth with some 600 grit wet or dry sandpaper once chamfered. A musclechuck would have eliminated the spanner problems. Forum members were getting a small discount when buying them. Quick Change Camless Router Chuck Wood Working Accessories

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Paul, just sand the edges with 400 or more grit wrapped around a curved piece of wood.
If you have nicked the metal below the surface line it doesnt matter. Only the raised damage would score the wood.

Youre looking at a lump of money to replace that plate just for a bit of cosmetic damage.

I was using the offset wrenches on mine and started to do the same thing. So I did what Chuck suggested and bought a Muscle Chuck and solved my problem.

Hi again,

Just noticed where you live! I have passed that place several times on holidays in BC/Aberta down the years. We usually stick to Highway 1 but have visited Vernon and stayed in Kelowna three times. Beautiful country!!

Thanks and I agree with you. It is pretty spectacular country here. My house is relatively easy to find so if you are coming by stop in and have coffee. I'm only about 3 minutes off highway 6.
