SELECT AND INSERT THROAT PLATE
Your Ryobi RT100 router table is shipped with an assortment of five circular throat plates. The throat plate provides
a stable surface around the cutter and prevents objects from
falling through the throat and damaging the spindle.
The selection of the proper size throat plate depends on
the size and shape of the cutter you are using. When
inserted, the throat plate opening should be within approximately 1/4 in. of the outer most edge of the cutter.
Return the lower guard to its proper position and secure
by inserting and tightening the two hex screws previously
removed.
WARNING:
If you are changing a cutter immediately after use, be
careful not to touch the cutter or collet with your hands or
fingers. They will get burned because of the heat buildup
from cutting. Always use the wrench provided.
To insert the throat plate, position the throat plate over the
throat opening in the router table and snap throat plate down
and into place as shown in Figure 11. To remove throat
plate, pull gently until the throat plate snaps out.
Note: If using a cutter larger than 1-7/8 in. but less than
2-3/8 in. in diameter you may operate the router table without a throat plate. This is the only situation in which the
