Get the most from your trim router with the Crafted Elements line of precision cut acrylic trim router bases. Each router base plate is crafted from clear 1/4" cast acrylic for the ultimate in clarity and durability.
Our universal trim router plates are easy to install and feature pre-drilled, recessed holes compatible with the most popular trim routers on the market.
Most trim routers ship from the manufacturer with small base plates that are often asymmetrical. This not only creates challenges when using them with various jigs and templates but they can also tilt or tip while in use due to their reduced footprint. Our oversized 8.75" diameter base plates are perfectly round, providing you with additional stability and support as well as an equal center point around the entire perimeter of the plate regardless of how you pivot your router.
The oversized trim router plate was specifically designed for pocketing and using with tray router templates. The extra wide base ensures your trim router stays level even with pocketing large tray openings because the base is (usually) always going to be riding on top of the surface of the tray or dish template.
If you are looking for even more control and better ergonomics, it's likely worth checking out our dual handle universal trim router base for wood carving and sign making.
This trim router base plate features countersunk (recessed) holes around the mounting holes so your factory screws can be used to mount the plate to your router. However, please note that in some cases you may have to further recess the hole with a countersink bit if your screws have an oversized or an uncommon screw head profile. This is to ensure that the screws sit entirely below the router plate and dont drag on your workpiece.

If your router is not listed above, you can still use this router plate by centering your router and drilling your own mounting holes.
