Default Router Plate

I have the Hitachi M12VE and I need a pre drilled plate. Where can I buy one at a reasonable price.

Hitachi seems to be one of the last routers that manufacturers pre-drill for. I have an M12V and an M12V2 and the bolt patterns aren't even close and I wouldn't be surprised if both of them are different from yours. I always assume I'll have to drill my own holes. On the home page there is a thread about doing your own plate.

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.

Making you own plate is the way to go, plenty of tuts on google and even better search in youtube
