I've got a box of 3 of those old craftsman bushings that have never been used. If you want to pay shipping you can have them. |

In making your own base plate you might also try cutting the centre hole/s on a lathe if you have one for greater accuracy

Hi ________, welcome to our little corner of the 'net. |
Another way to solve this problem, Making your own sub-base plate Another option is the universal plate sold by Milescraft. Turnlock baseplate I've not used it, but a few members here have had great success with it.

Welcome to the forum. |
I have tried several third party plates and, once centered and screwed down, they have no play what so ever.
For some plates you may need to drill holes to suit your router.

Also, it is very easy to make your own.

base plate for standard bushings
I have an old Craftsman router model #31517380. The hole in the original base plate is too large for standard 1 3/16 bushings. Sears is much less than helpful in identifying a base plate that will work. Does anyone know the correct part number? I have purchased 3 after market universal systems. None of them will center properly. They all have too much play.
