Herb, its your lucky day! One of the best projects you can build is your own router table. To make life simple for beginers, Rousseau sells mounting plates, a template and guide bushing set, and a kit for centering your router on the mounting plate. Some double sided carpet tape, 4 small allen screws for leveling, a 1/2" straight cutting bit and you are ready to go. Installing the mounting plate into your table top is a breeze. If you have any doubts of the quality of these products, this is what was used on the New Yankee Workshop for 10 years. I think it would be great if Oak Park offered a similar kit for the vacuplate. The two piece guide bushing with the removeable collar takes all the guess work out for first time users. By the way, make sure you keep the template and guide bushing handy, you will be making tables for your friends before you know it!
