Router Insert Plate ?
Hello, new to the forums. I have been wood working for many years but just as a part time hobby. Well I am upgrading my router table. I bought a Woodpecker MDF table 24x32. Now I am looking for either an insert plate or lift. I have a PC 690 router and my budget isn't real big.
I don't use my router table very much...maybe 2-3 times a month. I may go two weeks with out getting in my shop so my use will not be very much.
I think I have it narrowed down to to options:
The JessEm Rout R Lift II with the Phenolic plate. Im not real sure about the Phenolic plate and staying flat.
Woodpeckers 3/8 " Alum plate only...no lift....I like the idea of the stiffness of alum....but would be without the lifting part.
Is the Phenolic base warp or sag free ?
No more than I use it I could probably get by without the lift feature.
Phenolic with lift ?
Alum no lift ?
Any suggestions or insight ?
Thanks for your time,
