Topic tags/keywords: question router table

Okay, I’m mystified. I just got a Kreg router table insert pretty much like this one. I cannot for the life of me figure out what that brass post over to the right is for. It screws on to a set screw that screws into the insert top. It is clearly supposed to be on top of the insert, but what in creation could it possibly be for? It’s not mentioned anywhere in the installation manual or on their website. It’s as if they just assume you will know what it’s for. GAAAHHHHH!!!
