Rotating Insert Rings
My top/fence/plate is from Rockler. One thing I dislike are handling the three tiny screws that hold in the various sized insert rings, and the required fussing to seat them flush every time. Seems like the smallest bits of sawdust prevents them from seating properly, plus, "snugging them down" repeatedly roughs up the cross slot and forms tiny ridges which catches the boards sliding over them. Where can I buy a new plate with rotating insert rings instead of the ones that screw in? I have only seen these type rings marketed with a router lift.
I'd have a tendancy to change these more often to better reflect the bit size if changing them were more user friendly. My big Triton would also benefit by the better dust collection too, which suffers from sawdust-clogged height-adjusting (falls down in spurts when lowering from above table). I've cleaned out the mechanism twice before which didn't alieviate the problem, but only helps. Anyhow, any leads? Thx.
