Our redesigned aluminum router table plates are now CNC-machined flat for the utmost in precision and repeatability. We've kept the same generous dimensions – 8-1/4" x 11-3/4" x 1/4" thick – the exact size of the openings in our old tables as well as our redesigned router tables. Choose from four predrilled mounting-hole configurations listed below – A, B, C and D – to fit the most popular routers on the market. If your router isn't listed in these four groups, either of our two non-drilled plates can be easily customized to fit your tool. All plates include an insert with a 1-1/2" bit opening. Optional inserts sold separately. Plates A and B use Standard Opening inserts. Plates C and D use Large Opening inserts.
- CNC machining for a dead-flat routing surface where it counts the most – right next to the bit.
- Each heavy-duty aluminum router plate includes an insert with a 1-1/2" bit opening, plate locking bolts and router mounting hardware.
- Please note: Because different table top materials (HPL, phenolic or cast iron) require different leveling screws, the leveling screws are included with the table tops.
- For customers making custom table tops, we recommend the Router Plate Leveling and Locking Hardware Pack (22994, sold separately). This pack includes eight plate leveling screws and two 1/4"-20 threaded inserts to accept the lockdown bolts included with the plates.
1/4" Aluminum Router Plates Predrilled for Most Routers: To choose an aluminum plate, find your router in one of the four groups below. If your router is not listed, choose either the Standard Blank Plate (with a 3-1/4'' bit opening) or the Large Blank Plate (with a 3-11/16'' bit opening) and drill custom mounting holes.
- Group A routers: Makita 1100; Milwaukee 5615-5624; DeWalt 616-618; Bosch 1617-1618; Ridgid 2930 Combo Kit; Hitachi M12VC (fixed and kit); Porter-Cable 690, 890, 7529, 97529 and 8529. Note: Current models of the Porter-Cable 892 require at least two screws to be 1/2" long versus 5/8".
- Group B routers: DeWalt DW621 and DW621K; Craftsman Standard; Freud FT 1700E and 1702VCEK
- Group C routers: Porter-Cable 7518, 7519, 7538 and 7539; Milwaukee 5625-20; Triton TRA001 and MOF001
- Group D routers: Bosch 1619-1619EV; Freud FT2000; DeWalt 625
Not quite what I imaginedPosted March 3, 2014
After mounting my router, there were 4 other pre-drilled holes which were left unused (presumably for other router models), which I do not like at all.
If you do not like unused pre-drilled holes, then you should look at the blank plate instead (which was what I should have bought).
Other than that, this plate works very well.
Group A platePosted February 1, 2014
Editor's note: The Group A plate can be used for a variety of brands/models of routers. As the Bosch 1617 shares the same 3 hole mounting hole pattern as the other routers in the group it is the correct plate to use for the model. The plate is not drilled for above the table height adjustment feature of the model though, so if one wishes to use the feature one can simply drill additional hole for it.
