Default Bosch POF 52 Problems

Hello

I have had the aforementioned router for about 30 years. Unfortunately I knocked it off of my kitchen table and I have cracked the base plate. What can I do to replace it? As far as I know it is now defunct and spares are not available. Can anybody help?

if it's just the plate, glue it back together and use it as template to hake another one or get an after market one from say Jasper...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I hate to be a party-poop but if you spend $70-$80 + shipping, you're half way to a new router. Just sayin'...

If the base (metal) is cracked, you will likely have to find a used one, ebay or google for sale on this item. If it is just the base plate, then Stick's solution is the answer. But I think you might really enjoy using a Bosch 1617 instead. A lot less trouble and if you get it at Lowes, you'll have it for use later today. 30 years is a lot of service from any tool.
