Default Oak Park gloat

I just got a barely used Oak Park router table off the Craig's list for $75. Fence, 3/8" box jig, 2 clamps, two base plates, fulcrum pin, manual, video - all included.

The only blemish is that the plate I want to use is about 0.020" concave.

I figured that even if this matters and I have to get a new plate I am ahead of the deal. However, anyone has any ideas if this can be corrected? Reversing the plate is clearly not an option due to the countersinking of the slots.

Gotta love Craig's list!!!

I have a very good memory, just short is all.

You could flip it if you transferred the hole pattern onto something else, then drill and countersink the flat side. The other option would be to have someone with a lathe reface it for you.
