Default 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?

HI Bill

No need to make a new plate just make a Sub Ring plate that fits the bolt pattern you now have on the plate and new pattern on the ring plate. out of 1/4" plastic or some Alum. just tap the holes..so you can screw the plate in place with the router mounted to the ring plate..

Note ;;;you can also use the Black plate on the router if you want for the sub. ring plate, it's bit thin but it should work OK,you may need to use some sex screws to mount the router to the plate..some call the sex screws binding post screws..
