Default Draper Router

Not sure if the name Draper is familiar with members. I bought a Draper router not realising that a suitable table was unavailable. If anyone could recommend a table to fit, I would be very grateful.
Even plans for a simple home made device would be better than nothing!
Thanks

I am not famalliar with that particular router, however, you should be able to get it to mount to a table. Check out place such as rockler and incra, or any table that has an insert. They all sell inserts that have various hole patterns for different routers. If there isn't one that matches your router, you can get a blank insert and drill your own holes.

Hi Kevin

You can mount any router to a table ,you may need to drill a hole or two to mount it..

The best way is to pickup a plate like below to mount it to..must be someone in UK that sales them also..

Router Table Plate

Hi Kevin:

Alternatively, you can learn how to make your own baseplates and other accessories and wave to the tool vendor as you go by. I was convinced that it was a terribly accurate ordeal and that I couldn't do it, until I did it. Now I'm doing all kinds of stuff.

The most functional and frugal is the OakPark philosophy. Visit OakPark at Oak Park Enterprises Ltd. - Router Table, Router, Router Bits, Router Jigs, Router Accessories: Home and look at their stuff. Then go to the The Woodworking Channel search out "The Router Workshop" videos and watch them like you're taking on a new religion. (I'm starting to wear out that line. Anybody got a reasonable replacement?)

Watch carefully at how their stuff goes together. Especially watch how they handle a router in the table. The OakPark site is the vendor arm of the "Router Workshop" TV program. Everything you see on the program has a picture on the vendor site.

When you have questions, come back to this thread.

Cheers Ron. At the moment, my brain is starting to hurt, trying to digest all the information I am coming across. Will certainly visit the sites you recommend. ATB Kevin

Kevin, in the UK the most common mounting plate will be the Trend, which is a licensed version of the Canadian made Rousseau plate. Trend will have an installation template and centering kit to make mounting your router a breeze. Again, these are the same as the Rousseau products you will see on this site. Look at the "Sticky" threads for more information.

Hi Shepherduke,
I already ordered a Draper fixed base router from the UK, I will be doing mainly free hand routing. Are you happy with the Draper you bought?

Got one more question, The Draper Expert 1350 comes with a 1/4" & 1/2". Is it possible to put a 8mm reducer, inorder to be able to use my 8mm shanks bits too. Here in Belgium we have mostly the 8mm.
Draper 45368 1350W 240V Comb Router Kit Part No: MR1350K - Draper available at Draper Tools
costing 164.74 euro. I hope that this router will work well, there is not much fixed base router here. Only the Bosch GMF 1400 CE, but too expensive for me, since I will need 3 routers in total, for not changing the bits all the time.
