Smile Another newbie needing guidance

Hi all - recently retired and trying to build some woodworking skills - unfortunately I don't have any neighbors with similar interests. I was 'gifted' a Freud FT 1702 VCE, 2 1/2hp router as well as a Craftsman Professional bench top router table [171-264620]. They don't seem to like each other - mounting holes don't align.

Any suggestions above a reasonably priced bench top router stand that would work with this particular Freud router would be greatly appreciated.

I have two wonderful granddaughters with many project ideas for their American Girl dolls - I need to get busy.

Thanks and this forum is great for beginners like me.

Paka [per my granddaughters]

Hi, Jeb; welcome!
If you fill in some bio info such as the general area where you live (Seattle, Miami, LA areas eg), plus a bit more info on what major tools you currently have, it'll make it a lot easier for other members to help you out with directing you to resources in your own area.
How much experience and what you want to be able to do in the future would also be helpful.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
