Good morning,
I have a bulldog router cabinet with a lift table, the inserts I have uses three screws to remove the insert . I see quick release inserts , and was wondering if someone sells an adapter that would allow me to use the quick release inserts on my table?

good morning to you Gene.... and welcome to the forums...

to help w/ the your limited experience in woodworking
We've put some helpful information together at this here link to help you get up and running in the world of routers... We hope it to be useful to you... Enjoy...
do take some time and read the safety PDF's... PLEASE!!!
Blood and trips to the ER, we find, are very annoying... Not to mention – expensive...

now for your table...
all I could find is a Bench Dog and not a bull dog...
as for the quick release fastener, Quicklok™ and Camlock™ probably make what you are looking for...

@stick,
I may be wrong (probably), but I understand the OP to mean the different-sized inserts in the router plate? Like the Kreg or Jessem insert rings that lock in with a quarter turn?
I believe you hit it...
but if he wants twist lock or magnetic inserts I believe the only way to do that is change the plate...

Changing the plate like Stick suggests is the only way I know of. I have the same problem with my Rockler insert on my table. Cheeryville Chuck suggested putting a button magnet on the screwdriver to keep the screw from wandering off. It works well. Be ware, if you drop a screw and it inadvertently goes into the router motor, if you turn on the motor it wlll ruin your motor in a flash, VOE.

The reviews are not the best for this one, a metal one might be better.

Most of the companies that make router mounting plates have also offered them with "twist lock," or bayonet type inserts. I wound up with a Woodpecker plate, which required routing out a little larger rebate. It was more expensive but also thicker, my preference for the Triton.

I also bought the accessory kit of different sizes of inserts, all twist lock. See pix. I really got frustrated with the 3 screw method, too easy to lose track of the screws. I am certain Kreg makes such a plate

And Gene, welcome to fun Forum, nice place to spend time.

Welcome Gene. If the inserts are steel you might be able to drill holes into the threaded "ears" in your plate and embed small rare earth magnets. That would probably only be good for inserts that change the opening size. I wouldn't trust that solution if you were using a template guide instead.
