Unhappy Black and Decker Commercial Router 7620

I purchased this router back in the 1980s and now that I'm retired I thought I'd put it to good use.

I purchased a dove tail kit which came with a bushing that did not fit the Black & Decker face plate. I've been unable to find the 1.5" bushing required to fit this old Black and Decker 7620 face plate.

Two questions: Would a universal face plate fit and solve my issue? or Is there another place I could find the 1.5: bushings?

Lee Valley offers a unit for a "1-1/2" through bore base plate with a 1-3/4" counterbore, to follow the outline of a pattern." Its the only one I've seen.

If this sounds like it might work you might take a look at:

1-3/4" Brass Template Guides - Lee Valley Tools

...then give them a call.

Just my $0.02..
