  • routing plate......

    ok guys, I need some help with a router plate job . I want to install my router to the TS 3560 saw extentions, as posted in these forums, see the link, the instalation, using the aluminium right angles,and the legs, for added support.
    What kind of router plate would you recommend for this installation?
    I am noobie wood worker,... dont laugh now.... I have a black and decker plunge router, at the moment.

    but I do have a fine table saw.

    Re: routing plate......

    Hello Smelly!

    I am just finishing up a router table and fence on my 3650. I am new to routing in general and table routing in particular. I purchased the MLCS All in One plate through Amazon.com for 34.95 USD. For me it gave the best bang for the buck. I do not have a business or work in woodworking full time and felt that the cost of a metal plate was high. (On Amazon, search for router plate and you will get a few to look at).

    The MLCS plate came with two inserts for various diameter router bits. Boy are they held in tight without screws, no fear of vibration popping them out.

    I also had to drill the mounting holes for my router in the mounting plate but this was made easy due to the concentric guide rings on the underside of the plate.

    I did use google to search for various plates and epinions.com and this forum prior to making my decision.

        I ordered my router plate from Harbor Freight for $20 plus S&H. Been very happy with it. Check out the link.

        If that doesn't work try typing in Windsor Design Router into the HF search box and that will get you there. Good luck.
        No, the half of the missing finger was not power tool related.

          Hey buddy, remember this. Nobody here is laughing at anybody or their equipment. You're doin' fine by posting to a lot of knowledgeable folks - me *not* included!

          Enjoy yourself - that's all that matters!

            I installed the Harbor Freight plate in my RT.
            I recently saw it in a catalog for 13.99 IIRC.

                I bought my aluminum angle at Home Depot. I also found the same thing at Lowes. It's not hard to find. As far as plates, I found one at sears for $15 made of steel, drilled mounting holes and set it in the table top. It works but I think I may upgrade to a lift for making adjustments in bit height.

                I agree with ironhat, no one is laughing. Enjoy your router...
                If at first you don't succeed, try reading the owners manual.
