Default Freud mounting plate.

Hi members. I ordered a replacement mounting plate for my Freud Bench Top Table from a local repair shop. I was told that Freud now make this plate from aluminum but expected the plate to be a direct replacement. I was a little alarmed to read an advert recently for this model of table with a description that said it had a larger opening to make it easier to lift the router out. Now I wonder if the replacement plate will be bigger than the old one, I hope not. Oldrusty

Hi Al, I believe I read somewhere that Freud has a template for routing for the new plate. Hope this helps.

Where there's a Willis there's a way!

Thanks Dick. I contacted Freud and it appears that they make several plates. In the past if people had the smaller opening they routed it to the size of the replacement plate. We'll wait and see. Al
