Default Router mounting plate

I am building my first router table. I have the cabinet built and am working on the top. I thought about using the aluminum plate from Rockler, it is 60 bucks with free shipping right now.

Also while I was looking for ideas for the top I saw some reviews from people who said they did not need a miter gauge slot, they just used the fence. I thought it would be handy for jigs.

Any advice and ideas would be very welcome.

Thanks

Tommy

Hi Tommy


I would say yes for the tee slot you will not use it all the time but when you need one you have it in place i.e if you want to use a sled or a miter gauge you have it.

Let say you want to put a slot in some stock that's on a 45 deg. angle it's hard to do with just the fence but the tee slot it ,will make the job easy..picture frames,corner blocks for case work, T & G router bit set,etc. for just some of the jobs you can do easy.

I am looking for advice and experience with the Tritan Router. I am looking at the 31/4 hp model Tritan has for a table mount. The advantage I see is that you can change the blade without taking the router off the table, as the adjustment on the Tritan brings the collet above the table and locks the blade. Looking forward to your comments. Kelwing 2132

A miter or T track is personal preference, really. If you have one, you may use if for featherboards or such. If not, you just make the featherboards longer, so they use the edge of the table.

I have a track, because it came already in my tabletop (bought one predone, used from someone who thought their plate size would fit).
