Our Mid-Size Insert Plate Kit is specially designed to fit the Rockler Convertible Benchtop Router Table. Its unique shape minimizes the size of the insert plate, resulting in a light, agile feel when pulled out to use freehand. Its narrow profile also allows the table to be more compact, while at the same time keeping more of the table at full thickness, to control sagging. The two-piece design lets you attach your router at the correct angle so that the handles fit through the narrower opening in the table. Pre-drilled for many common routers, and can be drilled for other routers.


Pre-Drilled for the Following Mid-Size Routers:

  • Bosch 1617
  • Dewalt DW616
  • Dewalt DW618 series
  • Hitachi M12VC (not M12V)
  • Makita 1100 series

Router Insert Plate
I bought this plate along with the Convertible Benchtop Table. I was mounting a Bosch 1617EVS to it when I noticed the router has an option to adjust it through the base if I had bought a Bosch table. Doing some marking and measuring, I was able to drill a small hole through this plate so now I have the ability to adjust the router from the top. I'm going to enjoy this alot more now

Home built router table
I built a router table on the extensions of my table saw and I needed an insert. I cut/routed out the hole in the table to accommodate the Rockler insert and it worked great. I have a Porter Cable router that the insert was said to be compatible with. The holes lined up perfectly. I did have to shorten two of the screws but that was only a 5-minute job with a hacksaw. I am very pleases with the purchase.

Because I inadvertently ordered the Rockler Convertible Benchtop Router Table with Insert Plate Kit for Compact Routers when want I wanted was the mid-size plate!! So, rather than return it, I decided to keep the table and have both plates.

I hope this router plate will work with my existing older Craftsman router in a custom made router table extension for my table saw.

I was in search of plan on using this in my scratch built router table. I like being able to easily remove the router for hand held use without having to remove the plate.

Does this fit Bosch MR23EVS?
Peter K on Jun 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Perter:
Sorry, but I can't help you with your question. My Bosch is a 1617EVS, which uses the Mid Size Plate. Just call the tech people at Rockler. They'll let you know if your model fits the Mid Size Plate.
Hope this helps,
Dave
is there a router template so I can make my own router table to use this router plate?
Jamie S on Jan 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I bought the Convertible Benchtop Router Table (from Rockler) that both the Compact and Midsize Plates fit in. I can't answer if there is a Template available so you can make a table that you can place a Midsize Plate in. But, I will tell you that the Convertible Table I bought was so I can change the plates based on the size router I'm using. Plus the table has adjustment screws underneath the table, where the plate sits, so you can level the plate flush with the table so as to have a smooth transition when sliding your work past the router bit. I would imagine that you could buy the plate and then design and build your own table around it Good luck.
Convertible bench top does it have split fence?
