I finally broke down and bought the Bench Dog cast iron router table and lift from Rockler. As advertised, the insert rings are REALLY flimsy, made from a soft flexible plastic. I’ve been looking all over the internet for a polycarbonate ring that will work. The inert ring is 4-3/8” with 3 screws set in a triangular pattern around the outer edge (not sure what the exact radius is for the holes). Anyway, I can’t find anything that is out there that is an after-market option. I have a friend that works at a machine shop and I am considering having the shop make me a set of aluminum inserts.
Should I be using aluminum for the insert ring?
Does anyone know of an after-market insert ring that would work?
Any other thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
