Question Freud router base for 3 1/4 hp FE2000

undefinedundefinedundefined I want to either purchase or build a router table for my big boy router. However, I no idea where to look for hardware to attach my FE2000 to the table. All catelogues show tables for the other well known routers(PC, Dewalt, etc.). What can I use for mine?

You can buy the freud router table made for this router.Home depot sells them ..You can just buy the freud top and make the base . Or you can build it from scratch as they say.
It would be easier to buy the Freud Router plate for this router..its bored to fit the router...All you need to do is inset your top.ON this sight there are instructions how to do it. If you dont want to buy a Freud router plate, go to a window and door business and buy a piece of Lexon 3/8 thickness and the over all size you want..for eg 12 x 8 x 3/8
When you buy your own router plate you will need to bore it to fit your router base.
The important parts is making sure it is centred..There is probably information about that on here also.
Hope this helps Hickory

Routerrookie,
Did you manage to find what you were looking for? If not and you need additional help, reply. I have the same router and I built a table for it.

Default Router Table for FE2000?

Hi, Routerrookie.

You mentioned you built a table for your FE2000. I realize that was some time back. But, I've had an FE2000 for a few years, and recently got a PC for handheld use. I'm interested in mounting my FE2000 under an as-yet-not-built-nor-designed router table. I was wondering if you had any advice for me, or even if you had plans you could offer.

Thanks!

Does anyone have a source(Freud website appears not to have this) a drawing showing the layout of the holes and dimensions of the 2200 series routers?

Best regards,

John

Hi John

You don't need the dimensions or the hole layout becasue you have them.. right on the router plate and it's always best to use the plate you have because it's right for your router.

To Charles,

Thanks so much, I'll pm you with my email address.

To Bob, I could go and spend time measuring the base layout physically, but I want to work up CAD drawings for a baseplate for table mounting, and possibly a sub base or two-especially a circle cutting base. It just makes things a bit more accurate with a real(and in this case, "factory")drawing of the product to go from.
I suppose I could have scanned the stock sub base and...

Best regards,

John
