Sherwood's Aluminium Router Mounting Plate is incredibly flat and hard wearing
The Sherwood aluminium router mounting plate is precision-milled and CNC-machined from 6mm-thick aluminium plate. The aluminium is anodized in Sherwood orange and then checked for flatness after this important step. Where necessary, each plate is checked and adjusted for flatness for a perfect smooth surface closest to the bit - where it matters most.
Also included is a template to perfectly centre your router over the centre of the bit aperture.
There are six grub screws installed along the edges of the mount plate to ensure a perfectly level fit on the lip of the router table underneath it. The radius on the corner of the mounting plate is 16mm, so using a standard 5/8in or 16mm straight bit will provide a perfectly match radius in the corner if you are making your own table.
USA standard sizing
The new Sherwood Router Table range has moved to the North American industry-standard size 298 x 235mm, so now the only plate size available is to match the current range - choose the RTAMP-3. This plate can also be used in other brands of tables such as Kreg, Incra, JessEm etc.
The centre hole is 92.2mm diameter and includes one phenolic twist-lock insert ring that has a 38.1mm aperture. The insert ring spanner comes standard with the mount plate as well as a starter pin and two holes to mount it either to the left or the right of the bit.
BakeLite or Anodonised Aluminium
Choose from either the economical 9.5mm thick BakeLite (stabilized plastic) or the milled, super-flat 6mm anodized aluminium mounting plate. Both have rings marked on the underside to centre your router on the plate when mounting. Both plates measure 298x235mm. The BakeLite plate has a 99.5mm hole with two nested insert rings with 67.5mm and 32.2mm apertures.
The aluminium plate has a 92.2mm hole with one twist-lock insert ring that has a 38.1mm aperture. Available separately is a set of four phenolic insert rings for the aluminium plate with apertures of 6.75, 12.9, 30.0 and 38.2mm as well as blank rings to drill out your own size.</p>
