Title: Base plate for mounting router in a support table

Abstract: A base plate for mounting a router in a support table provides a plate configured to fit in an orifice, having an inwardly extending ledge thereabout, defined in the support table with the router supported by the base plate to depend therefrom. The base plate defines a medial orifice for passage of the router shaft through the orifice for operative positioning of a cutter carried on the router shaft above the base plate. The base plate medial orifice releasably carries plural annular inserts to cover space between the router shaft and the support plate portion defining the medial orifice. Plural adjustment screws are carried in threaded engagement in the ledge of the support surface orifice for vertical motion to adjustably move adjacent portions of the base plate periphery upwardly from the ledge to create a coplanar relationship of adjacent portions of the base plate and support table. The base plate carries at least one releasably adjustable fastener to fasten the support plate on the ledge in the orifice defined in the support table.
