Default "Old" Rockler Router Plate

Rockler changed the size of the insert for their router table. I have an old table and need an insert that's 7&7/8" X 11" drilled for a PC-7518. Thanks.

Andy,

I did some searching and found nothing to help you find one. I did find this article about the plate you refer to. After reading, you may wish to just get a different size plate and retrofit the hole in your router table if that is possible. Sounds like they had some issues with that plate.

Mike,
Thanks for going to the trouble to look that up. I already have 2 of the old plates that are flat enough that I've never noticed a problem. I bought a third plate from Rockler, not knowing that they had changed sizes. It's too big in length and width. I'll probably end up getting the new plate cut to match my others, but I thought someone might have upgraded tables and would have an old plate lying around. Thanks again for your help.

have an old rockler router table plate, but I have no Idea what it is drilled for.

Came with a top I bought and I had to modify the top for my lift, so I only used it once or twice then made the hole larger to fit my lift.

Thanks, but I already cut one of the newer, larger plates down to fit my table. Appreciate the response.
