Hey, Joe; buy a Bosch plate and whip up a new top.
I've done a Google for Bosch plates and come up empty. Expecting that rectangular(ish) plates found on Rockler, etc, but nothing by Bosch. They do offer their own tables, maybe that's why.Hey, Joe; buy a Bosch plate and whip up a new top.
Took me a bit, but I see that is the replacement plate for the RA1171 and RA1181 tables. It would definitely fit what I have without modification. Just have to make a table.It's a mystery to me, Joe???
I have one but I can't find it online... (I'm too lazy to go out to the shop and find the p/n )
There is this one however:
If you have a centering cone, drilling and countersinking mounting screws into universal plates isn't a huge challenge.
That's about the price for the Woodpecker plate I got for the Triton. It's very thick, nice and large, pre drilled for the Triton, and has the wonderful twist lock inserts. Hey, it's just money. My philosophy on money has always been, get more. Works for me. :wink:Dan; $100 for a plate?! Ouch.
Is that an area, or the town name? You can PM me if you wish, or I can PM you.If you live near Central PA, I have the RA1171 table but don't use it. You can have it for $50 and it includes a spare base (I think it is the RA1165 base) in it already. Just need to add the motor.

Have no fear, Joe...you will like the 1181 just fine...make sure you wax the top regularly to keep aluminum marks off your project piece...Thanks for all the input.
In getting the current project over with, I opted to order the RA1181 from CPO Outlet, partly because Midnight Dec 31 2018 was the last day of the discount on Bosch stuff over a certain price.
I got to thinking about dust collection, feather boards, etc., so the ready made seemed the right choice, for now. Once I get the current project complete, I am pretty certain I will go for building a larger table and will have the RA1181 to influence me. Hopefully, I can recoup some of the outlay on resale.
In the famous words of, oh several people, "it seemed like a good idea at the time".
