- Shapeoko 4 XXL & Pro XXL (9 plates for maximum coverage)
- Shapeoko HDM (4 plates for maximum coverage - see photo)
INCH PLATES: Holes are 0.75" on center and tapped 1/4"-20. Holes are not counterbored.
METRIC PLATES: Holes are 20mm on center and tapped M6. Holes are not counterbored.
Our new modular fixture plate design for the Shapeoko 4 and Shapeoko Pro lines utilizes the 100mm t-slot spacing (standard across all Shapeoko 4 & Pro routers) for a more flexible workholding solution with a lower barrier of entry for beginners and hobbyists. Plates can be mounted in any orientation anywhere along the t-slots on the router bed and can be combined side-by-side for use cases where full coverage is needed.
For best flatness plates should be mounted directly to the aluminum extrusion, however plates can also be mounted on top of the Shapeoko's MDF strips. We recommend surfacing the MDF before mounting our fixture plates in this case.
Multiple plates can be set up and aligned using our 3D-printable* alignment jigs (available below). Each jig requires three of our 1/4" Fixturing Pins for inch plates or three of our M6 Fixturing Pins for metric plates. These are not necessary for setting up plates but can be helpful when putting sets of plates together.
Note: mounting hardware not included. QTY5 18mm M6 SHCS and t-nuts should be used per plate. Existing T-nuts and M6 hardware (for securing MDF strips) included with your router can be used, otherwise hardware kits can be purchased here.
*For 4 series machines, metal chip covers may need removed to accommodate plates in certain orientations. Fixture plates then act as chip covers in place of those removed. Standard size Shapeoko 4 machines may require slightly bending chip guard mounting tabs out of the way in order to fit full set of four plates. Shapeoko Pro (standard size) may require further modification to fit a complete set of four plates.
*STL files are both saved in mm for ease of use with most slicer programs
