Default Those little white plastic panel guides for Oak Parks Router Table

Hi, Does any one know where one might purchase those little white female and male plastic guides ,that are used to align and hold the Oak Park Router Table together? Or what they are called, I have been searching the internet, but not having much luck , since I am not sure what to call them.
Thanks Darrel

Darrel, they are called furniture connecters but so are several other designs. I know they are used in Europe and require a 10 mm hole. I will get you a source for them.

Häfele sell them here in Europe. Try their American distribution for local suppliers.

BTW I prefer the metal versions - they don't look as cheap and are stronger and more durable

Regards

Darrel, Oak Park still has stock of the connecters but they are not listed on the web site. 25 per package/ $8.95. To order call 800-665-0252. I looked at the catalog Phil listed but did not find this type of connecter.

Hi Mike

I don't have the OP table and would love to see a picture of the plastic connecter.

I dug them out for you BJ, sorry it took so long but they were in the back corner of the garage and buried deep! These connecters install in a 10 mm hole; they come as a matched set of male/female. When snapped together they are very sturdy but will come apart to knock the table down for transport.
