Default Plunge base for Marvel 40 trim router

A while back I purchased an MLCS Marvel 40 trim router. I was disappointed to find that the plunge base that came with it was junk. I'd like to replace it with a plunge base for the Bosch palm router or Makita RT0700 but I'm worried they may not fit. The body diameter of the Marvel 40 is 2 5/8 inches. Has anyone fitted an alternate plunge base to the Marvel 40 or can anyone recommend a plunge base with a 2 5/8 inch opening?

Welcome back,John, Hmmmmm I have never heard of any swapping router bases,that will be interesting might run into problems with height adjustment. I will measure all my bases and see if any fit that diam.

even if the dia is the same what about the key slots???

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

Stick....I may have to resort to that. I was hoping some of the members might measure their bases and help me narrow the possibilities.

John,
That entire router and especially the plunge mechanism is, indeed, junk and not only that, I had to spend $28 to return it. Good luck with your search for an alternate plunge base but I'd eat the return cost and send it back.
