This router plate works great.
I accidentally broke the initial plate that came with the router I ordered and purchased from Rockler 2 years ago. I needed to go online to get a replacement so I called to be certain I had the correct one. When I explained to the representative that screws did not come with the initial plate to secure it and that was why it broke, he placed an order for a replacement an had it shipped right away. It fits perfectly, had the correct screws and now I an using it all the time!

Needed additional insert for use with door panel rail & stile bits. Larger diameter bits than original insert (that came with table) would accommodate.

I needed this larger insert because I recently purchased a Tongue and Groove bit sit by Freud and the Tongue bit was too wide for my standard Rockler insert (1.5 in) on my Rockler router table. I ordered a 2.5 in insert.
