Hello All:
I have an older cast iron tables saw wing / router table. The opening is a non-standard 9×11. I know I can (and have) made my own inserts but I’m curious what is available ready made. My searches have been compromised because standard sizes include 9 and 11.
Any suggestions?
Cheers,
Jim

I think I would check before buying as the ad has as much metric measurement, as inch.

That’s really interesting because conversion from the metric would be 11.81×9.25.
Thanks,
Jim

I think our standard measurement is a rather vague idea to our Chinese vendors. Kinda sorta.

Saying that I did buy for almost no $$$$ a few adjustable miter bars in aluminum that had those gauzy numbers, and they fit perfectly into my 3/8” deep x 3/4” wide miter slots. Doing a conversion with an online MM to inch calculator told me they probably would not fit.

In your case though, the price is not an almost nothing.

Cut a rectangular plate to fit and knock off the corners. Corner fit doesn’t have to be precise. A miter laid in a radiused corner works fine even if it looks odd.

Yes, they are easy enough to build. I am simply wondering what is out there as pre made. Maybe with precise machining for guide bushings etc.
