Router table insert
It’s what I wanted, but I think they should be stocked in the stores.

wonderful material
This insert for a Rockler router table could not be any better. It is made of a plastic and fits exactly as designed It is super smooth so it does not interfere with one's work.

Should be included w/Rockler lifts & plates.
I'm using the rockler router lift. Unfortunately, rockler has decided to make their inserts a weird size and i needed to use pc bushings. I don't know why they don't include something like this with the lift, or at the very least have these stocked at stores (I believe these are on-line purchase only). In my store, the sales staff initially said that rockler doesn't have an adaptor to fit Porter Cable bushings.

Great router insert plate
This plate fit right into my Rockler Router Lift FX. It allows me to use the spacer collar bushings which are necessary for the Leigh router table dovetail system. Very happy with this purchase

It works
I was suspicious but it worked. The Leigh RTJ400 bushing went right in and stayed put for my first project. I'm pleased at least for now. We'll see what time and use does to my opinion.

Tickler too proprietary!
Product good. Works fine but a shame you have to buy everything separate. When you purchase router plates made by other companies, you get three size rings with the plate. With Rockler, you have to pay for the three rings separately, and I didn't even get the screws, or a starting pin. Rockler is way too proprietary with their products.

Rockler Pro Plate - Inserts move when routing , not acceptable
Very disappointed in the quality of the Rockler Pro Plate and these inserts. There is nothing Pro about them. The locking system used to secure these to the Pro Plate do not hold them secure enough on their own. I am using the Leigh Router jig and it requires the insert to not move and this was not the case with this insert or any insert I have used. I would’ve taken it back but I already drilled into it for my above table adjustment for my Triiton router. I had to stick little pieces of foam in the screw holes so I can work but that will get old when I goto change plates. My old portable Kreg router table locked tight every time , I thought I was getting an upgrade with the new router table from Rockler but now I wish I would’ve saved a little more and bought the full size Kreg table or a Jessem. The router fence is nice, the size of the table is perfect and the stand itself is sturdy so I can give 5 stars for those, but the pro plate and the limited number of available inserts and their fit rates less than a star. Stay away from the Pro Plate

BEST ANSWER: #6-32 x 1/4" long
I'm still learning how to use my router table properly and have literally melted portions of two plates so far. Is there anything out there that is not made out of plastic that will have the same dimensions? Thanks, A Newbie.
Tony G. on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Tony, you should really look at your setup first before adding a piece of metal. You could be having a contact issue in which case metal + high speed spinning = Shrapnel (especially aluminum).

If you are melting your plates then you are probably hitting the plate with the spinal in which case you need to pull your bit out of the collet and then lower the router to get the same height. If your bit is in contact with your bushing and you are picking up friction then you should use a bigger busing and re size your template.
If neither of those is the case then you are having air flow problems and among other things you are destroying your router. You can try drilling air holes in the plate around the main holes but avoid hitting the bracing on the back of the plate (I've done this). You should also always use some kind of dust collection it will help keep the bit cool making it last significantly longer.

Good luck, and please be safe
are there any available in 4 1/2" dia.?
Terry H on Oct 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The opening in the table for the standard plate is listed as 4" and for the large diameter it is 4 3/8". To get to a 4 1/2" opening you would have to modify the plate.
Will these snap into place or will I always have to screw in? I’ve got the FX lift.
Holland W on Feb 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe you Will have to screw it in. I did not see anything on the one I purchased that appeared to be a “snap in” component/tab.
Is there a dust collection attachment for this? Part #?
Tim A on Aug 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No there is no dust collection attachment
I have a Rockler router table with a 4 3/8 inch router plate with a 1 1/2 inch opening. I need a 1 1/4 inch opening with a rabbeted off-set of 1 3/8inch. Do you have this plate?
Thanks
Kevin
Kevin P on Jun 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That would be item #61594
Does the 61594 insert work with the Leigh RTJ400 guide bushing?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It did not work on RTJ 400 for me and that is why I bought it. Size worked ok but the bushing would not stay still in my bench dog table to use RTJ 400 setting. Perhaps your set up is different. I ended up taking a piece of phenolic and cutting hole w/forstner bit and clamping it to router table.
how thick is the insert? My table needs a 4 inch radius insert that sits down 1/8"
Dave on Feb 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 4" radius is an 8" diameter insert. Are you sure? Rockler's insert has a diameter of 4.375" and is 1/8 thick.
Hope this helps.
Stu
will this fit a bench dog pro plate?
