Default Router plate

I'm looking for some advice on a UK based link (ideally Amazon or ebay) for a router plate that will fit the triton mof001. I can't find any specific compatibility information for plates I've found. Thanks guys.

I’m not sure if there are any specifically stating they will even here Jacob. A few claim to be universal and they have lots of holes in them for various configurations A few have been made to fit Porter Cable and maybe Bosch and you had to drill it for other routers.

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.

If you drill your own, I have found that the hole pattern is not symmetrical in most routers I have used. In other words the plate only fits one way on the router base. Also it can not be turned over and fit the base.
So when you use the sub base to mark the hole lay out, lay the sub base on the underside of the router plate oriented to the position you want the router facing under the table. Then drill a pilot hole through from the bottom preferably with a drill press then turn over and drill the bolt shank hole and counter bore for the head of the bolt.

And you WILL need a centering tool!

Good point Dan, make sure the router will exactly center in the hole in the plate.

All you need to do is take the black baseplate on the bottom of the router (which must be removed if installing into a table) and use it as the pattern. All the mounting holes are exactly where they would need to be for an exact template/pattern. Center the base plate in the hole in the plate first. I also suggest you get a plate with a twist lock insert rather than one that uses 3 screws, which are easily lost.

I make my own plates, and that is how I started, and still do. Didn't even think about any other way. I don't find screws to be a problem, I keep track and am careful not to lose any. And, when I do lose one or two or three, I make sure I have spares on hand to replace them. One issue, forgot where I put the spare screws.

Why are you looking for the plate for MO001? MO001 comes with the plate. This plate fits into the Triton router table if you want to go to next level of capability of the MO001.

Going to have to mine the archives..

The hole pattern matched a couple of the standard US big routers....

Will see what I can find....
