Default routers and router tables


My name is Lyle Miller. I have a question regarding routers and router tables. I have a Craftsman router table and a Bosch router model # 1617EVS. The holes on the router table don't line up with the holes on the Bosch router. Do I need a new router table and plate compatible with the Bosch router or what. Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.

Some of the craftsman router tables are set up to accept only the craftsman routers. Not sure which one you have and if it can be drilled out to fit your router. The Bosch is a good router.. might be a good investment to upgrade in another router table or build one of your own. It's easy to build a nice cabinet and add a after market router top from Rockler, Oak Park etc.
