They sent me another one. So now I have three with the same problem. They put in the order details that whoever ships it out should check that it's flat. But it does appear flat, unless you stick it in the table. The last two that were sent were much better than the original. I'd say the last two are acceptable enough. The last one has a slight concave upward, so maybe the weight of the router will overtime level it out. Where as the other one is actually more flush with the table but has a slight concave downward. Maybe I can send a picture later this week with the straight edge up against it and see if you guys think this will be close enough. It seems to me that a plate should be dead flat. Especially when the table is. Then again, this is my first table, so maybe it won't effect it that much. But I have to say I don't think I'm going to find one of these plates that is perfect. They just are not that great of quality all the way around. And being made of the plastic type material they are, I guess I can't expect much.
In defense of Grizzly, the customer service has been EXCELLENT, and the rest of the table is very quality, especially for the price.
