Rock-hard foundation for insert-plate leveling
I have a router table with a shop-made top of MDF and plastic laminate. Over time, I had trouble with my router lift's plate-leveling screws digging into the MDF, causing the plate to no longer lie flush with the table's surface. To create a solid foundation for the leveling screws, I drove small, flathead wood screws into the baseplate recess at the leveling screws' points of contact. Problem solved!
