If you take a look at the photos in my first post, you should be able to follow the method.
The adaptor does not have to be used. I do not know which router the adaptor is designed for.
The bushing is attached to the base plate with the lock nut.
First attach the router to the new base plate.
Using a v-groove bit make a slight dent in the base plate to show the dead centre point.
Clamp the base plate onto the drill press table with the 'dent' under the centre of the quill.
Using a forstner bit, make a through hole 1 3/16" diameter. Without moving the base plate, change to a 1 3/8" cutter and make a hole ONLY to the depth of the guide bushing.
You need to cut a 1 3/8" lipped hole dead centre in your base.
This may confuse you more......but with the help of the other members, you will be able to make a base plate to suit your router.
I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.
