Maybe I'm not understanding the problem correctly, however the Lee Valley 704R adapter has counterbored mounting holes so it needs to use pan head screws for it to work correctly.

In a similar fashion, the Festool 1010 copy rings/templates also have counterbored mounting holes so they also need pan head screws for proper adjustment.

Correct, but an M4 panhead is as wide as the counter bore and it's also not bored deep enough...so I need a wafer thin M4 with a very narrow head.  I was thinking of grinding down a hex cap screw.

I altered it a little with a needle file.

This all seems like too much effort and aftermarket parts just to center a darn bushing.  Festool's answer was really disappointing "Yeah there is no way to center the adapter ring without modifying the plate"  Thanks, I'm glad I bought this crooked- 600 dollar router.

So, did you alter it enough to properly center the adapter ring? And, isn't the only additional items you need to purchase is the Festool centering mandrel and a couple of pan-head screws?

If I could find pan head screws that would clear.
