Stainless Table Plate needed to be replaced.
To remove old table plate, first construct a special tool simply made from 1/4 phillips bit with 1/4 inch combination wrench. Place the bit in the box end part of the wrench so that the bit forms the tightest angle (just opposite the way you normally use a box end). Use electrical tape to wind around the bit and so it tightly held in the end of the wrench. Remove ONLY 2 of the phillips screws on one side of the plate bracket.. You do not need to remove all four screws, just one side or the other. After removing the old table plate, use a putty knife to scrape any debris away.. The base must be smooth and clean. Wipe the base with paint thinner to remove any wood pitch. Remove any Sticky Shipping labels from the new Table Plate prior to installation. Also Remove all traces of sticky label glue with paint thinner. Install the plate and tighten the screws. Use some furniture polish as a surface lubricant on the new table plate.
