Effectively reduces the aperture void between router bit and router base plate.
The presence of the reducer keeps pressure on the surface around the bit and this minimizes tear-out and provides support for smaller work pieces.
The fact that the aperture is closed to entry of larger debris means that there is less likelihood of bigger chips or even knots jamming in the aperture; thus reducing the risk of kick-back.
The base plate reducers from Whiteside Machine Co. are designed to fit any router with a standard 1-3/16” diameter recessed hole for template guides.
Made from solid brass, the set includes 7 base plate reducers and a single retaining nut.
Openings are slightly oversize for tool clearance.
8mm Base plate thickness is ideal; a thicker base plate will require a recess to be installed on the retaining nut side of the base.
