Default Woodpecker mounting plate

I suspect they make a good plate but I'd like to hear from those that have one. I'm looking at one to mount my Triton. On Amazon, I see two model numbers but they look exactly the same. AI7518 and AI690890 - I can not tell the difference between the two, if there us a difference. Basically the same price. I checked Woodpecker site and they did not have a model number listed, however, the will ask you what router you want to mount - I suspect so they can make sure they have the proper holes drilled. I do not see that option with the Amazon plates. I think I'll pay the shipping and buy direct to make sure the plate is drilled correctly

Any thoughts or comments appreciated

AI7518 and AI690890

Those are drilled for the Porter Cable 7518 and PC 690/890 respectively.
Here is the on you want..

Available Prime also.. but.."Usually ships within 1 - 3 months"

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Any plate drilled for the PC 7518 will also take the Triton router.

I've had one for a couple of years now and love it. I have one with a big PC motor and a lift.

Thanks all - when I searched Woodpecker, the triton plate did not come up but it did when I searched "Woopecker Triton"

Ordered it today. I like that it is also pre-drilled for the handle to raise and lower it

So how are you enjoying your new router and plate?

I am sure you are. They are very well made and the features make them enjoyable to use.


Just remember what my father always said, " Half the people in this world are below average!", and everything in life will make a hellova lot more sense.

Brad,
I have not started using it yet. I'm in the middle of getting my garage shop oragnized to a semi functional state. You can follow on my blog I started at The 2 Car Garage Shop I'm still not 100% sure what I'm going to do with the router. The woodpecker plate does not fit the Bench Dog portable router table I have. I have a Bosch portable table saw and I saw a picture of a router set up in the psace created when the table is fully extended - this allows the use of the table saw fence - just attach the router fence to it. I al;so have an idea of just setting up a table that i can put between two mobile cars using a french cleat system - I could then just put the table away when not in use. My space is limited so I'm really trying to think about how I do some things. It would be alot easier if my wife did not insist on being able to park her car in the garage and if I did not have bikes to deal with - but I have a plan for them I'll tackle after I build the mobile fishing cabinet >> that's next week if the weather is good. So much to do and so little time
