Slight Fault - Clearance Special
The Pre-Drilled Mount Plate has been made slightly incorrectly by the factory - the four mounting holes are all in the correct position but the hole for the above-table height winder is located incorrectly. If you are willing/able to re-drill this hole, then you can pick up one of these pre-drilled mount plates for half the normal price. The plates will be available again with the height winder hole located correctly again in mid-February at full price - now known as the RTAMP-5.
Pre-Drilled for the Triton Router
The Triton TRA-001 Router is easily the most innovative plunge router released in the past twenty years. One of the many great features of it is the above table height winding mechanism built in which allows for above table bit changes. The beauty of the system is at full extension above the table there's a spindle lock so it has the added benefit of single spanner changes too!
The Sherwood Aluminium Mounting Plate is now available pre-drilled to quickly and easily remove the black plastic base plate and attach the mount plate to the router. Along with that the hole for the height winding arm for the Triton is also pre-drilled and marked with the direction to wind it up or down.
About Sherwood Aluminium Mount Plates
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.
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.
