Good fit

Use it after you rout using the stewmac routing templates and it fits perfect. They come still covered in plastic and protective paper so they stay new looking until you're ready to install. My only complaint is that the price seems a bit high for an oval, square edged piece of plastic.

Covers the Hole

It's a shaped piece of plastic, not much more to it than that! If you need it, then it's great that you can buy it here (like so much other useful stuff). If you are using the matching template, do a few test runs on scrap first as I found I needed a few wraps of tape around the router bearing to get a better fit. Allow for the thickness of the finish. (wise men learn from the mistakes of others...please share your mistakes :-)

Fills a gap

I bought the cover plate really to act as a template for making wooden covers to match the control cavity templates. It seems substantial but the edges need quite a bit of finishing which sort of defeats the purpose. This and the related templates are products that probably could do with review by StewMac.

Cover your parts

This is a large cover. I installers 6 knobs and a pickup selector switch. and I had a lot left over so much in fact that I was able to cut a truss rod cover from this piece and still had a large scrap left.

way off of StewMac's cavity template

The cover's fit is way too sloppy in the cavity routed with the cavity template set. The whole point of buying the cover and the cavity templates is so that they match perfectly. The cover is undersized over a sixteenth of an inch in some spots, and even worse, it's not consistently undersized around the whole shape. So you can't even use a not-quite-flush bit with the cavity template in order to match the cover. Basically, I had to route a copy of this cover with a 1/16 larger bearing, and then sand extensively to make it fit the cavity.

Used with SM's templates this cover fit like socks on a rooster. I wish SM offered this cover in exotic woods. :)

Great Quality Cover Plate

It looks great and feels strong. Size is good too, letting you cover a nice sized cavity. I had plenty of room to wire a toggle switch and 4 push/pull pots.

First quality

Great look, and the perfect thickness to make you feel it is strong.
