Hey guys sorry to bump this thread.

I received my LS positioned but unfortunately the base doesn't have the holes in it for the screws that the precision plate mounts to.

I saw on the website it mentions I can drill my own holes:
https://precisiondogs.us/products/precision-plate

What did others do? I'd rather not drill into it - it mentions a TS plate or something that would work with it.

Anyone have recommendations on how to mount this? Sorry for the stupid question!

Matt

Looks like both Incra and Precision Dogs have made changes since I bought mine, but...

I think you need to first remove the gold plate from the bottom of the Incra LS positioner and replace it with the red steel plate.  I think there will be existing holes that you can use to bolt the LS to the red steel plate and then the red steel plate to the Precision Dogs plate.

Look closely at the pictures in the link you provided above.  The original Precision Dog plate used the gold plate.  The new Precision Dog plate uses the red steel plate only.  Do not use both.

One more bump on this; 

My LS positioner came in last week and the Precision Plate with the red TS plate today. I was wondering if anyone with this configuration had to also install a shim between the red TS plate and the LS positioner base to raise the LS positioner carriage up enough so you could attach the fence ?  Wasn’t an issue to do so, just surprised it was required. [huh]

Please let us know how it turns out. I've got an LS on order and a precision plate (without the red base) waiting for it. I might need to reach out to precision dogs to see if I can get a red base.

You can drill holes in the mounting base that comes with the LS positioner to match the Precision plate and you won’t have to worry about the height issue.  Here is a photo of what I did - wood under the Red TS plate.   Also show how I plan to connect the CMS-GE to the MFT..   well see how well it works..  fingers crossed.

@tjskinny
I went and checked my setup, since mine dropped right in with the red plate. It's been about a year and a half to two years since I installed, but  I think there are two screws(loosens a bracket) to loosen and you can adjust the fence up and down so you don't have to use a shim. Don't know if this will help you. Good luck
