Default Stanley H39 A parts

Hi I'm looking for a new style base plate for my very old (but still working great) Stanley Model H39 A, so I can use it with the Porter Cable dovetail jig I just purchased. The old base plate center hole is too small for the included sleeve. I don't want to buy a new router, my dad would turn over in his grave if I did while his old router is still working.

make a new plate or adapt a Bosch or Porter Cable plate to fit...

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

Agree with Stick 'bout the Porter-Cable base. If you adapt a Porter-cable base, you will be able to use the "industry standard" Porter-Cable template guides.

Search on Amazon for "Porte-Cable router bases"

Welcome to the forum J. There are a few after market base plates available. Lee Valley sells a couple I think. You`ll also need a centering tool for lining the new plate up with the router. Bosch`s cone style one is the most versatile and is only a bit more money.

An even better idea would be to keep the old Stanley for the jobs it is good at and get a new plunge router to use with the template guides. The new router will already have the appropriate opening in the plate or an adapter to hold the template guides and some of my routers came with the centering tool also.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

You can get a generic base here and drill your own hole to fit your router, that is what I did.
