I know we can make our own special use base plates like this one but I've got to tell you, for the $9.99 price tag it just isn't worth it! This is a top grade item and besides being useful for cutting mortises it gives you the advantage of having a see through base plate on your router for every day jobs!

Bought this on sale and it's well worth the price.

Great product, that makes an easy job of mortises. Using shims on the sides of the project adds a lot of flexibility. I am sure a wedge secured properly on top would also allow different angles as well, though I have not tried it yet. Great product! Thanks again Rockler!
