Any ideas for leveling a router table insert? My insert sets a little low on a couple corners. The table top is 2 layers of 3/4” MDF. I added setscrews to level the insert but they don’t seem to work. I think the MDF is to soft and the setscrews get “pushed” down when I tighten down the insert screws. They are installed in such a way that the screws can be raised and lowered from the underside. All I have to do is loosen the screws that secure the insert to the top, adjust the setscrews and re-tighten.
I’ve use blue tape to level inserts on my drill press table and it works great but I’m not sure if that will do, maybe it will, I haven’t tried. I had thought about using aluminum tape (the stuff that is used on duct work.) to level it.
