    Finally got my router plate.

    Back in Febuary I decided that I needed a better router table and after some reading on another forum I decided to build my own and ordered an insert plate from Grizzly to set into my new router tabletop. It was backordered right away but it finally arrived today. Now you would think that I would have had plenty of time to get my top built but no..... I think I'm going to stay with a very simple design that I can clamp down to my benchtop when needed then put away when not needed. I have so many things I want to do but no time to do them. I hope to start something in the next couple weeks anyway. Here is a photo of the insert I got from Grizzly.

    I've had a Craftsman 1 1/2 hp unit for many years. Works fine so I'll use that.
