Default Inserting a router plate in a router table

I thought there was a good article about inserting a router plate in a router table.

Does anyone remember this one?

Thanks

I thought there was another thread on this forum.

I installed a Rockler plate which is blue and aluminum. I bought the template. There was a little slop in it. I fixed the slog with a tiny wedge.

Maybe I will just stick with that system.

Thanks

Hi SB

Pickup some 1/8" x 3/4" dowel pins and put two in...
Just tape the plate in place drill down into the mounting plate and into the top.,,,one in each corner should hold it true and you can still lift it off when youi need to..

It was 2 sheets of 5 1/2' x 5 1/2' x 1/2" baltic birch ply. Had some left over to make a rack for my woodworking books and mags, and a bunch of other stuff.
