router base. Unless the rabbet depth is an exact match for the insert thickness, you'll get an insert that wobbles or isn't flush with the table surface.
Woodhavcn 's set of four leveling blocks eliminates the need for that troublesome rabbeted ledge—you simply rout a straight-sided opening for the insert. Then screw the levclcr blocks to the underside of the table. They're designed to align automatically with the edge of the opening, so there's no measuring involved.
A pair of thumbscrews on each block lets you fine-tune the ledge that supports the insert. These are hard to turn: I resorted to a pair of pliers when my thumb and forefinger got sore. But the adjustment is precise, solid and foolproof. There's even a small rabbet milled in the top edge of each levclcr to keep accumulated sawdust from raising the insert out of level. And there's no problem adjusting the blocks if you switch to an insert of a different thickness.
Woodhaven supplies these levelers with their own router tables, but the blocks will also work on other tables. If you're interested in breaking the rabbet habit, this is a good way to go. (Price:
