Default Router plate

Hello All,

I did a lot of searching but I guess I am still missing it! I am putting my 9x12 baseplate on a 1/2" routed ledge. Will the weight of the router be enough to hold the plate in or does it need a couple of fastners of some sort.



Thanks


JIM

Hi Jim - Welcome to the forum
9x12 plate on a half inch ledge should be plenty. Weight of the router will be more than enough to hold it down, plus, the fence will be over it a good bit of the time.

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

Hi Jim

I will 2nd. John's post, the fence is over the plate most of the time, it can't jump out and all the free hand jobs the weight of the router will keep it down..you will see many go over board with clamps,screws, etc. they are not needed, they are a real PITA the norm.
