Default Router Table Plate for EVS-1619 questions


First time poster. I've been reading through the forums and have changed my mind from buying a Router Workshop Table from Oak-Park to trying to build my own (emphasis on trying). I'm still open to changing my mind again if there is better suggestion.

My plan now is to build the top according to the stick post "Build a table top and install a mounting plate" and building the cabinet based on ShopNotes Vol 1. #1's plans. I bought the Rockler fence from Rockler on Clearance for $29 because I lack a drill press for making accurate holes.

So if I'm to proceed with this plan, what router base plate would anyone recommend for the Bosch EVS-1619? I read through the reviews for the Rosseau and it seems like a hit or miss, so I'm afraid the Harbor Freight copy would be the same. Woodpecker didn't seem to have one for a 1619.

Any suggestions for a plate? Or any other suggestions to change my plans?

I have limited tools. A contractor saw. A miter saw. The routers, drill. No dado blades.

New to woodworking and want to learn to make furniture. My first planned project, aside from the router table is "The Routerwork Shop" Episode 1103/1104 Kitchen Console.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi, welcome to the forums.
All you really need is the blank router plate. You can use your sub-base as a template to drill the mounting holes. Don't really need the drill press for that, I haven't got a drill press either . I just used my hand drill. I did center punch the holes and drilled small, 3/16" holes first and then used those to keep the bit from skating on me.
Just draw vertical and horizontal centerlines on the plate and do the same on the sub-base. Align the lines on the sub-base to the lines on the plate and you are centered.

You may also search back through the posts and find where someone has posted a template.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
