Router plate leveling hardware.
My router table with the Rockler router plate AND leveling hardware. The leveling and locking hardware went in easy and it also was easy to adjust.

Leveling hardware
It works well, however I did not use the large fluted leveler as it seems a bit bulky and the leveling bolts work well. The leveling bolts are a bit long but may be necessary for thick router tops. Sorry , I am not able to produce a picture. The table with the router insert is close to being complete and I will be pleased to finally use it when it is complete.

I bought a used router table that included a Rockler lift that I wanted to 'add' to my Delta saw. I will build up the table/cabinet to be flush with the saw and use it as an extended surface for the saw. I will use these to attach the sides of the table to the rails of the saw.

Installing Benchdog pro plate in my shop made router table top. Purchased the leveling and locking hardware kit. Don't see any instructions for its installation. Where can I get them?
Bob F on May 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Check the Technical Downloads section of the the Rockler Router Plate Template - Item #: 20956. There is a PDF with a layout diagram for the screws.
I have the Rockler Plate Leveling and Locking Hardware set on-hand and have milled out the top of my router cabinet for the Rockler Router Plate as instructed on the router plate template. I've aligned the pilot holes for the eight leveling screws. My table top is made from two 3/4 inch thick MDF boards resting on an 18mm Baltic Birch cabinet top, so installing the screws will require some counter sinking from inside the cabinet. For the locking screw inserts: after drilling the 11/32 inch holes what's the best method for installing the inserts in the MDF? I don't want to booger-up or deform the MDF if I can help it. I could use some scrap MDF for a test installation, but thought I'd take the easy route and ask those who have more experience. Thank you for any replies. Chris

BEST ANSWER: If you have an allen wrench the exact size that you don't mind cutting the angle part off you can then chuck it up in a drill. Predrill the top to accept the insert and, with even pressure and slow to moderate speed, the insert will thread itself into the MDF. If you are not sure of yourself try in on a piece of scrap first to gain your'll surprise yourself.
I'm installing a router extension on my Jet table saw. The surface comes from a countertop sink cut out. What tools or bits do I need?
Tony T on Jan 20, 2016
What size drill bit do I use for the locking inserts and what size drill bit do I use for the leveling screws?
Charles M on Jan 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A 5/32" bit fits shaft size of the 7mm leveling screws. Pre drill with that.
A 19/64" bit fits shaft size of the locking inserts. Pre drill with that.
Test these on a scrap piece of the same material you are using before on your final product.
A little paraffin wax or soap will help ease these into the holes, excepting maybe the locking inserts as you may want to put a little epoxy on the threads to hold them in place.
You want these tight to stay in place with use.
You don't want them too tight that they crush or weaken the material in which they go into. Test fitting is important.
What size screws fit in the two inserts?
Rob B on Oct 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 1/4" x 20 NC.
Where on the table do you position the 8 confirmat screws and the two hold down inserts! 2 confirmats at each corner or spaced evenly around the table?
mike h on Sep 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The PDF included under the Technical Downloads section for the "Rockler Router Plate Template - Item #: 20956" includes a detailed layout for the screw positions. (It is not necessary to purchase the template to download the PDF)
why only 2 inserts for 8 confirmats ?
ken m on Sep 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 8 confirmats are for leveling the plate. The other screws are for securing the plate to the table once it has been leveled
This 7mm x 40mm screw seems huge for the small-ish holes in my Rockler Router Table... are they made to screw in super tight? Seems like I'm going to break up the particle board that the table is made of? Anyone?
Jeff B on May 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 8 40MM screws are installed on the underside of the table along the edge of the cutout for the router and are used to level the router plate and should fit tight. The two inserts are used to mount the router plate to the table. Using a bit of bar soap on the threads will make both items turn easier into the MDF.
Can I get them in other size ? and a larger quantity?
Luis J on May 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This is the only size and quantity available from Rockler.
