Rockler Router filler plate 2 ½” opening
This filler does a nice job of great fill-in for use with large diameter bit. Setting the router bit needed a close flat surface for the setting gage to stand level for accuracy. This filler plate filled the gap very nicely.

Just the addition I needed to enable my router table to use a 1/2" round over bit.

Just what I needed
It was only after I got my table assembled and installed the router that I realized the plate opening was too small for the bits I wanted to use. The 2 1/2" was just what I needed, so I ordered it and got it in a few days. Works perfectly.

Insert plate(s) do not set flush with the router plate
Both the insert plate that came with my Rockler router table and this new 2-1/2" insert sit anywhere from .016" to .020" below the surface of the router plate. This makes for a very noticeable step that work catches on and can also introduce errors to the working surface of smaller pieces. It has been necessary for me to shim the insert plates to avoid this and it's pretty inconvenient. Maybe I have a bad router plate since both insert plates have the same issue. Both of the insert plates measure about .122" thick compared to an average recess depth of about .140" for the router plate.

Does this insert fit your router plate #57293?
J O on Mar 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It fits my router lift plate i got from Rockler, but I find that it sits low by .008 in. so I have made shim pieces from plastic as I could not find metal shim stock. It seems all the plates I have are right at that .008 low too, go figure.
I have an older sears router-315.175050model, looking for a base plate so I can use some bushings?
Thomas A on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sears should still carry that model of plate if you can't find it at Sears the next best thing will be Amazon Or eBay
