Default Mounting a Skil 1810 router :help:

I bought a Skil 1810 a long time ago but only my son has used it so far. I went to the new Toolbox/Woodcraft store in Chattanooga and bought a Kreg benchtop router table. I got it together and am getting ready to install the router on the insert. I don't want to mess it up. Here goes: Do I mount the router on the insert without the black baseplate? Or do I mount the router on the baseplate and then mount the router directly to the insert? Here's the dilemma- one of the screws holding the baseplate on had the Phillips slots messed up and I had to take the three screws out and turn the baseplate to loosen it. It is an odd metric size. If I have to mount the baseplate on the router, I am up the creek as I am short one screw. I did find a place in California that stocks them- 4 cents per screw and six bucks for S&H.
Router folks, your advice is most welcome. Thanks in advance. Looking forward to making lots of noise, chips, and sawdust.
FWIW, the screw is metric- DIN 965 M4-10X4.8H!

yes on without the base plate...
ace hardware or the the like for the screw....
very common screw and if the new screw protrudes through the router base by a fuzz there shouldn't be any issues...
take you router base w/ you...

all else fail, retap to SAE...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

Thanks. I didn't find the screw online with Ace or anyone else locally. Will check with the Ace store as they have a lot of things the others don't have.

Stick 486, didn't think of regular socket head screws as I won't need the countersink head for the insert. I should find something that would be the small thread and a length for the insert. Again, thanks!
A socket head screw with a flat washer should do the trick!
