Default old guy & old router

...Like to say hello from Tenn. to all you folks. I have an older Craftsman router (Model.# 315.174770). I wouldn't make a bead of sweat on a wood craftsman's butt. Have only fooled with it twice in all the years I've had it. Now that I'm retired I thought I may get to know it a little better. I would like to buy a guide for it, but I don't see how one would be mounted on it!?! Can anyone give me some guidance?

Hi George

Looks like you would be best off to put a Milescraft base plate on it..see below

Greetings George and welcome to the router forum. Thank you for joining us, and remember to have fun, build well and above all be safe. I like that, "lost as last years easter eggs" I will be using that one.

Howdy from New Mexico, George.

It's good to learn new tricks in retirement. Just remember, that bit spins awfully fast, and will eat through skin and bones even faster than it does through wood.
