Default router base and bushings

Good day
As you can all see I am a newbee to this site. I have three old routers. one is permenantly attached to its table and the other two are old craftsman. One is a 17371, and has the trigger which I like for free hand work. I ordered a set of router fixed sub-base comb bases, and the Router bushing set. yes nothing fits. Does anyone know a site where I can find a base that will fit my old router with a 5/16th center hole. ps I am just attempting dove tail joints. If I can get my router base and bushings i have a bunch more question about setting up my jig , but there is not much use going there without a router

Hi Tom

I suggest you take the plates you got from Sears and pickup one of the MilesCraft base plates..remove the one that's in place and pop on the MilesCraft plate ...
