Default new guy, new router

Hey all. new guy here from IL. just bought my first router, a craftsman 17540 plunge router. It has a removable motor and I want to get the fixed base for it as well, but couldnt afford the combo today. does anyone know the part number for the fixed base? i cant seem to come up with it in my searches online. First use for it will be to cut the holes in speaker cabinets, and I hope to get a bunch more use out of it as well

Thanks DrZook. id really like to get into some light woodworking, limited by the tools I have available (My new router, an OLD somewhat broken fixed base router, A cheap portable table saw, a 12 inch slide compound miter saw, a rotozip, and a jigsaw). I want to build a larger saw station for my table saw, to make it more useable, and buils d a router table into it as well
