Default Mounting plate info needed

Hey Guys, this is my first time here, I hope I don't ask a question thats been answered a million times before.
I recently was given a Bosh RA1171 router table and my old router would not fit the mounting plate. I was looking at the manuel for the table and noticed I could get a less expensive Craftsman router to go with it. It simply says the plate will accomodate "most" craftsman 1/2" collete models, but does not list model numbers. I looked and looked but could not find any lisy of model #'s that would work with the mounting plate provided. I wound up buying the Craftsman Professional 14 amp 2.5 HP fixed/plunge combo for the extra HP and Amps. got it home and...you guessed it, the thing will NOT fit the mounting plate for the Bosh table. does anyone have either a list of model#'s for craftsman that will work, or an idea of the mounting plate I need to get for this Model # 320.27680 ?
Thanks in advance for any and all help in this situation.

Thnaks OPG3, I'm sure I will get an answer, but I think I have decided on a completely different path now.... going to get me a professional craftsman router table to go with my new professional router... should solve it to satisfaction...
