Topic tags/keywords: router plate router kreg jessem woodpeckers woodpecker insert router insert table router table

Just wondering on the compatibility on the insert rings on the jessem, woodpeckers, and kreg router plates. All of them seem to use that twist lock mechanism.

Thanks

I’ve never tried to interchange them, but I’d bet this months SS check that they won’t fit each other’s products.

Fred: You sending me the $$$? ;)

I know that the woodpecker rings fit and work perfectly on the kreg router plate. I would assume since those two work correctly that the jessem would work.

Is it possible that they are made by the same company? Anyway, your check is in the mail….all 83ยข of it. I was going to keep a quarter, but hey! a bet’s a bet.

The Kreg plate is a blue Woodpecker plate, some Bench Dog plates are also Woodpecker products.

Versions of the Woodpecker plate are made in several sizes and colors and sold under different brand names. Most all of them accept the same rings.

Jessem is not related to the others, and there are versions of Bench Dog plates that are different.

Just received the Woodtek that comes with one insert, about 1-1/2 I.D.. My Woodpecker’s: metal or plastic do not fit.
I assume this is the same with the Excabibur too. The Woodtek has 4 attachment points. Woodpecker has 3. So I see no way to re-machine the either to fit the other.

Have your say...
