    Those are for screwing it down to a piece of MDF to make a duplicate template, and keeping the stewmac template as your master. I have had bearings seize up, or lift causing my bit to destroy what I was working on along with my acrylic template. Using a thicker wood or MDF template helps negate that problem.
