Default Router plate inserting

I stumbled on a web posting than illustrated how to prepare and install a router plate. The explanation referenced to Wealden router bits. I'm trying to find that site and point it out to a friend but alas I can't locate again. Can anyone identify what I remember>

You can find that information right here.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

When cutting the recess for a plate, or for any other insert, a Milling cutter is invaluable, in that, it is short, has a top bearing, and you don't need guide bushes, just lay your insert on the top, stick guide timbers around and touching the insert,I use hot melt glue for this, and use your milling cutter to cut the recess, the hole in the middle can be cut with a jigsaw after.
