Default Safety Guide Pin

My router table while commercially produced lacks a safety pin feature. Any ideas on how
I can install one and where I would locate it? The table has a numberr of interchangable inserts depending on the size of the router bit so do I mount a pin in each of the inserts or on the main body of the table.

If you have a plastic plate it will drill and tap just like a metal one will.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks for info JW2170. I was wanting to do this with my Dremel table. Now all I got to do is find some proper size bits with a bearing. Thanks again.
