Ok, thank you all for the responses. Now I will do my best to answer all the questions.

-I have contacted Rockler, the person I was chatting with said that the hardware provided were all of the hardware that they had avaliable for me to purchase and if the correct bolts were not included in the packet with the hold down bolts and fulcrum pin then I had to pretty much fend for myself.

-I do have two sets of bolts for mounting the router, one fits the threads in my router but the bolts stick up above the plate (the bolts they provided stick up). The other set does not fit the threads in my router BUT it DOES sit flush when installed in the router plate.

-I do have the correct plate for my router.

-The original screws that holds the plexiglass plate to the bottom of my router will not work with the plate. They to stick up out of the plate causing my problem.

-I would never modify my router to fit the plate, I was referring to modifying the router plate only.

-The router plate states that it comes with all the hardware needed to mount it to your router. (incorrectly I guess)

-I cannot afford a router lift at the moment, but hopefully one is in my future.

-I did take the existing plate off my router before attempting to mount it to the plate.

- I did not buy a template so I do not have the detailed instructions. I really appreciate the offer to take a photo of the info but at the moment I think I have it figured out how to install it, it’s just the bolts that are holding me back.

So what I thought about doing was countersinking the holes in the router plate for the heads of the screws just a little bit to correct my problem. How about that?
