Default Router buddy with Craftsman routers

Hi all,
I'm looking at picking up the Router Buddy for cutting circles and the Craftsman plunge/fixed router combo (17543) that is currently on clearance. The router Buddy manufacturer isn't sure if the included baseplate fits the newer Craftsman routers or not. Anyone use that combination?
thanks,
Dan

Hi Dan

They state it wil fit most routers but I think it will not be drilled for the 17543 but it's not a big deal to drill it out for the 17543...


" Product Description

From the Manufacturer
The Router Buddy fits or will adapt to fit nearly all routers, and converts your router into a multi-purpose system for the cost of one good accessory. Most setups can be completed in about 30 seconds or less. User friendly, extremely light and compact. Kit includes 4 of the most often used router accessories. Saves setup time because the same patented base plate is used with all kit accessories. Circle jig is infinitely adjustable from 2-Inch to 18-3/8-Inch. The Fence is infinitely adjustable from 0 to 8-1/2-Inch. Half rounds are used as a centering jig or added to the fence when a guide is needed on curved edges. Base plate accepts standard Porter Cable style template bushings. Unique design is so compact that both the circle jig and fence can be used in restricted areas where most conventional fences and circle jigs will not fit. Kit includes the patented Universal 7-Inch diameter Base Plate, Trammel Slide, Centering Jig, Fence - which mounts on Trammel Slide. Centering jig also used as half rounds on fence. Mounting screws, Allen wrench, and instructions included. "
