Newbie with Freud router question
Hi! I'm new to the forum. I grew up working in my father's shop and have a lot of 'long time ago' experience, but not much recently.
My table saw came with a Jessem Rout-R-Lift, and I picked up a Freud FT1700 router specifically to go in the Rout-R-Lift. Apparently the Rout-R-Lift doesn't have mounting holes for the Freud FT1700.
In searching the forum, I found a discussion on mounting plates for this router, and have downloaded the two PDF files. I don't think there's room to bore additional holes in the aluminum mounting plate that came with the Rout-R-Lift. Does that mean I have to make a new mounting plate? From what material?
