Default Rockler router plates

Does anyone know the radius of the corners of the plates made by rockler? In other words if one wanted to rout the opening in a table top with a flush trim bit what diameter would you need?

For as little as it costs, and for how long you're going to be staring at the top, the $10 template is well worth the price of admission.

The only plate I see on their site looks to be a 1/4" radius... if I had to guess. The Kreg and Jessem plates I have are 3/4" radius corners and they are the larger 9 1/4" x 11 3/4" variety.

I noticed the Rockler plate uses the screw in insert rings. My Kreg plate has this system and I'm not too fond of it. The Jessem and Woodpeckers twist out rings are far quicker and easier to switch out. I guess if your not using it that much its no big deal, but I switch mine out several times a day on the Jessem and dealing with those little screws on the Kreg is a PITA. Thats why they stay put and are used for one task only. I pull the whole router and plate out and switch it out with another.

Jessem makes a phenolic plate with twist out rings for the same price as the Rockler. Woodpeckers aluminum plate is a bit more but its pretty deluxe.

Just throwing out it out there. :-)
