Dumb question. I bought a plastic insert to put in a new router table I am
building. It comes with no instructions - which I usually read - probably
because everything seems self-explanatory.
My question is about the 4 rare-earth magnets (small pill-like ones). Is it
the intent that one sets these into the main table top with epoxy so that
the corner adjusting screws land on them?
Probably but I would not use them. If you drop the insert down on the
magnets they could easily crack. Additionally the weight of the router
typically pushes down hard enough. It may be rather difficult to pull the
plate and router out with 4 rare earth magnets working against you. I think
I would glue 4 pennies or dimes in place instead.
