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 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.

BEST ANSWER: #6-32 x 1/4" long
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
