Default Plastic insert for router table plate?

Hi everyone,
This is my first post, Thanks for your help.

I just mounted a new PC892 router in a Rockler aluminum router plate and would like to know if anyone could direct me to a site where I can purchase the plastic inserts. They are 4 inch circles that can be drilled out to fit the various size bits. and I can't locate them on the Rockler site. Thanks!

Go back to the Rockler site and search for item #2852. It'll be on this link, just need to scroll down a bit to find it:
Rockler Router Table Plates - Rockler Woodworking Tools
7 bucks apiece they're pretty proud of them. If you can get some acrylic that thickness you could probably make your own.

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

Hi John,

Thank you for the link to the information, I can't believe I didn't see these on my search, good thing my life wasn't on the line. You're correct, Rockler must think they reinvented the wheel and can charge whatever they want. I am certainly going to measure the thickness and try to make some of my own, it's only a 4 inch circle that I can cut on my bandsaw using my circle cutting jig.

Be well and thanks again.

Rick
