Default Router mounting plate

I notice that some examples seem to show router plates attached to their shop made router tables and some seem to be just dropped into the table top without fastening it in. Is this a personal choice, or is there a "best' way?
Thanks.

Hi

Best way.not to sure but all my plates are just a drop type, it's hard to get a 10lb.to 15lb. router to jump out of the hole and most of the time the fence is over the plate..holding it in down in place in the pocket hole, if it's installed right you don't need screws to get it level with the top or to hold it in place.

Can't disagree with that, in fact, I totally agree.

If your talking store bought plates, it depends on how their made. The Kreg plates are designed to go into an opening that has no lip, and levelers and mounts are screwed from underneath. Woodpeck and may others are designed to fit on a lip. So the first one is using one screw to help pull the other screw towards it.

Talking about plates with no lip and no screws.

I was thinking about the Rockler or Bench Dog style plate.

I bought a plate from MLCS and they included some rare earth magnets to mount under the adjusters. Seemed like a good idea to me.

I have a Bench Dog Pro Plate and it just drops into the recess cut in the RT - with a mighty heavy 3612C under it, it has not moved anywhere - in fact it's a struggle to get it out of the hole!!

One of my router table had a plate like that. Every time I took out the plate, a couple of the magnets came with it...... I think they are just to provide a hard surface for the adjusters.
