Default Porter Cable Speedmatic

Hello,
I have an old ( more than 25 yrs) Speedmatic fixed base router than has no markings or tags left on it. Probablly was badged Rockwell from the 70's. I am looking to identify the model so I can get a new fence for it instead of the wood ones I have used for years. Used to use the PC"Magic" fence until it just got worn out. Anyone have any old manuals etc to help visually identify.
Thanks, SCM

Hi Steve
I have one of those old Speedmatics as well. I believe it is a Porter Cable 5372. I can check when I get into the shop later today.
