I know I have seen it on here, but cannot find it. I just installed my bench dog table saw insert and put the Bench Dog Pro Plate in and it says to level the plate with the table surface with the included screws. There are lots of screws in there and it doesn’t say which ones, how or what. No other instructions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. There are only two screws that fit the threads of the holes in the table, but it would seem I would need four, one for each corner. It also says to tighten the screws, I do not see how to tighten with a set screw or anything other way to tighten once level.

I figured out that the two screws that do fit the threads are put in from the top so that once the right level is found you tighten the top screws to hold the plate against the screws that elevate the plate. So no I don’t get how to elevate the plate when none of the screws fit the threaded holes.

For some reason I thought a few of you on here had the Pro Plate?

I played around with some bolts that I bought and now have it within about .002”. Pretty flat, seems to work out, but just needed to improvise with my own hardware.

Have your say...
