I have a piece of diamond plate and cut the circles out using my jig saw. Once I get close, I run down to the line with a sander. I end up with press in fits.

I have a Powermatic and the plates I find everywhere are the wrong size, so making them is a must. I make a couple at a time.

I install the plate with the diamonds down. Be it the luck of the Irish or whatever, it’s a perfect fit in thickness too.

Once in a while the plate get loose in the throat and I just turn it over and hit it with a punch about one hundred twenty degrees out and it’s back to a tight fit.
