Rockler Aluminum Pro Router Plates

Item #
82% of 100

A router table insert plate makes it easy to lift your router out and set it on the table for comfortable bit changes, height adjustments, maintenance and even to use your router free hand or with a straight edge guide. It saves you from a lot of backaches, squinting and bumps on the back of the head from stooping under the table. Our Aluminum Pro Plates are CNC-machined for flatness, will not sag, and are generously dimensioned at 8-1/4'' x 11-3/4''. They work equally as well with shop-made router tables as they do with Rockler tables, and fit both our current tables and most of our old tables as well. Additional insert ring sizes are available (sold separately). Plates A & B accept Standard sized rings. Plates C & D accept Large sized rings.

Which Router Plate Do I Need?
To choose a pre-drilled plate, find your router below.

Router Plate A:
  • Bosch MRC23 Series, 1617-1618
  • DeWalt 616-618
  • Hitachi M12VC (fixed and kit)
  • Makita 1100
  • Milwaukee 5615-5624
  • Porter-Cable 690
  • Porter-Cable 890
  • Porter-Cable 7529
  • Porter-Cable 97529
  • Porter-Cable 8529
  • Ridgid 2930 Combo Kit

Note: Current models of the Porter-Cable 892 require at least two screws to be 1/2" long versus 5/8".

Router Plate B:
  • Craftsman Standard
  • DeWalt DW621
  • DeWalt DW621K
  • Freud FT 1700E
  • Freud 1702VCEK

Router Plate C:
  • Milwaukee 5625-20
  • Porter-Cable 7518
  • Porter-Cable 7519
  • Porter-Cable 7538
  • Porter-Cable 7539
  • Triton TRA001
  • Triton MOF001

  • Router Plate D:
    • Bosch 1619-1619EV
    • DeWalt 625
    • Freud FT2000

    If your router is not listed: Choose from two non-drilled plates-one with a 4'' insert ring (#56935), and the other a 4-3/8'' insert ring (#50850)-and drill the plate to fit your router.
    • For customers making custom router tables, we recommend the Router Plate Leveling and Locking Hardware Pack (#22994, sold separately).

    Generic plate for my ryobi router
    I needed a router table for a specific project so I added an extension to my table saw, replaced the formica so there was a complete smooth transition and installed this rocker plate (cut the plate hole with my cnc router).
    I had to take the base of my ryobi router and transfer the hole locations by pencil. Then drilled them out using a drill press, countersunk the holes so the ryobi plate screws would sit flush and it works great! Got my project done in a couple of hours and now I have a router table for other projects!
    I used the Kreg Precision table insert plate levelers from Amazon, and they literally arrived at the same minute that I was ready for them!

    Works great!

    awesome plate for the work table i built. wish it was pre-drilled for the bosch router being that i am a far cry away from being that precise to drill matching holes. But it worked and i am happy as can be. Just finished making a fence for it and can't wait to really use it..

    I intend to build a router table for my burgeoning wood shop, so a plate is the least you can start with in order to make the access to the router from the top of the table possible. Also, a flat solid surface is a must for accurate milling.

    I purchased your router table and the plate that came with it did not accommodate my Freud router. Rather then drill holes to match, I'll use one for another router and this other one for the Freud.

    I think aluminum will hold up much better than phenolic plates I looked at.
    Charles E on Feb 5, 2017
    I choose this plate after a great deal of reading and research. The plastic insert plates did not seem as sturdy. My Bosch 1617 is relatively heavy. I want my tools to last perform over their lifetime. I hope the investment into a custom router wing for my table saw works out.
    Casey O on Jan 16, 2017
    I ordered this router bit to prevent sagging with my heavy router. This and the support framing I have placed under my table top will make for a perfect combination of stability and quality.

    Atanu on Nov 13, 2016

    I have a Dewalt DWP611. I can not find any threaded holes on the router itself that will work with pre drilled plate configurations. All are less than the 4" insert diameter so even a blank plate won't work. The plunge attachment I have for the router looks like it will attach to plate B. Just curious as to why there would be only two pre drilled holes for the Dewalt when all others have 3 or 4? Does anyone have a Dewalt attached by just 2 screws and is it secure enough? Would be nice to have just the router attached and not the whole plunge attachment. Really like the Rockler though...

    which plate for Milwaukee 5615-80?
    Ronald D on Dec 31, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: 58316 Group A is for Milwaukee 5615 - 5624
    59466 Group C is for Milwaukee 5625 -20
    If neither fit you can purchase 56935 and template your Router and drill the insert to fit your Router like I did to fit my Sears Router. Just make sure you measure the dimension of the Router to fit the insert.
    With the Aluminum Router plate C, using the Triton TRA001 router, are any addition holes required to be drilled to facilitate the above table raising and lowering apparatus on the the router?

    Which plate is recommended for Bosch MRF 23EVS?
    Michael M on Jan 20, 2016

    Will this fit a Bosch MRC23EVSK and a Porter Cable 691? Also is there a pre drilled hole for the Bosch and lift?
    James P on Oct 23, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: It will work with those routers (Not with the plunge base)

    I'm planning to use this plate in combination with Leigh e-bushing and Bosch 1617 housing. What about cenering insert plate?
    Peter M on Sep 29, 2016
    I am planning use the 'A' plate with a Porter Cable 7529 and a Router Raizer on a router table I am building. 1. Looks like the plate does not have a hole predrilled for the Router Raizer, it has other holes none lines up with the Router Raizer access, is there a different plate with a predrilled access hole for the Router Raizer. 2. The original face plate has to be removed for mounting the PRO PLATE, or the plate should be mounted on the original face plate? What kind of nuts can I use for the two plate mounting screws. Appreciate the help.
    Daya S on Apr 18, 2016
    I bought the pro plate for my Rockler router table. However, the opening in the table is deeper than the plate. How do I bring the plate up to the level of the table top?
    Michael K on Dec 6, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I used four EZ-LOC inserts and four flat head screws (matching the EZ-LOK inserts) at each corner to adjust the plate to level with the table (leveling the plate to the table). A little thread lock on each screw will keep it from “walking” from vibration.

    i have a freud router FT3000 VCE Will router plate d fit with pre drilled holes ? sorry i forgot the vce part first time
    joseph s on Jan 5, 2019
    The only routers that I am aware are compatible are Porter Cable 690 series, all Bosch except Colt, and Dewalt. I had a Skil router so I solved the problem buying a Porter Cable use in the table.
    I have a Dewalt 616, and when I look at the router it's base is mounted with 4 screws, the plate A only looks like it has 3 holes for mounting. Am I missing something? can it also be mounted with a 3 hole pattern?
    Scott W on Apr 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Your unit takes one of the other units. It might be the B, C or D version. Double check with the spec sheets to see which one it belongs.. It is not obvious the way the web site handles the distinction. If all else fails use item #56935 and drill your own..
    what's the two countersunk holes in two corners for ?
    john p on Mar 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: They are for the screws that lock the plate to the table top. There are multiple leveling screws underneath, two in each corner and 4 in the middle areas.
    does this plate have a predrilled hole for porter cable router height adjustment?
    Michael R on Jan 23, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: No, you have to drill it.
    Will this work for the Milwaukee 5625-20?
    A shopper on Jul 11, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: The Rockler router plate worked well with my Milwaukee 5625-20 router. The hole match was right on. I had to drill a hole for the t- socket wrench that adjusts the bit height from the top of the table but everything can't be drilled in the plate for all of the routers that attach to the plate.
    Does anyone have the spec for the two holes to attach the plate to the table (upper left and bottom right) location and diameter?
    All the plates appear the same, but specifically plate C.
    andre c on Jul 2, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: The two attachment holes are "universal" and come with attachment screws and instructions for for table tops that may not match (rare) or if you make your own table top. The 'A', 'B" and 'C' configurations relate to the holes around the center opening and are designed to match the particular router you have.
    What are the differences between Rockler Pro and Bench Dog aluminum plates? The image on both sites is same, sizes are same.
    Garen G on Jul 10, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: I noticed that the bench dog router plates make no mention of being machined for flatness. If the Rockler plates have been ground for flatness it might explain the $10 price difference. I purchased the Rockler plate as the bench dog version wasn't available at the time. Is Rockler probably isn't a manufacturer, it wouldn't surprise me if both products came from the same source.
