I am new to this forum and being a woodworker for over 40 years, I have never used a router in a table configuration. I just purchased a Jessem Mast-R-Lift 2 router lift to go into one of my General 350 table saw extension tables which is made of MDF and covered with white Formica. I would like to used the Biesemeyer fence in conjunction with the router lift as many do. I would like to do a really nice job routing the opening for this lift and routing into a nice Formica top is not for the faint of heart. I'm thinking the best route would be to purchase the Jessem MDF template but it is quite pricey for a piece of CNC cut MDF at around $29 plus shipping. The Incra lift which appears identical to the Jessem sells their MDF template for $13, much better. Can anyone verify these two templates are interchangeable? Or is there a simpler "D.I.Y." method for cutting this opening with precision?

Thank you,

How recently did you buy your Jessem Router? The reason I ask is Jessem recently switched how they CNC/debur their router plates and the router plate I received had these "debur" lines. Does your router plate have these machining lines, as well? I'm not sure if I can show you a picture of it as I have not accumulated enough points.
