Default Freud router parts or replace

New to the forum so I'll start by saying hello.

I have the Freud 3-1/4 hp router that is under a Freud router table. Had an issue with the spring so the router went crooked on me and I bent the base plate and it has a small crack in it. I know...stupid me. Anyone know of a cache of old Freud parts? I really like the router.

That said...the table and fence is still in great shape. The plate is 9x12 and 1/4 inch thick. Any recommendations on a new plate/ lift? I can always replace the router. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.

Ebay or Craigslist in the hopes of finding someone selling a dead one you can scavage for parts.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Welcome. See how fast things can hapen around here. Of course, if all else fails, you can buy a blank plate and drill it for your router yourself. https://www.amazon.com/Rousseau-3509.../dp/B00002242B

Always best to have a thick aluminum mounting plate, rather than phenolic. If worst comes to worst, you can find a metal supplier in your area and have them cut a piece the right thickness to match the original plate. Drilling the mounting holes isn't really much of a problem with aluminum, but best done on a drill press.

Awesome! Thank you Bridger. My zip is 44060. My email is [email protected] to contact me direct. I'll pull the parts diagram and see what the specific parts I need are.

Also...do you know if the smaller 2HP Freud will fit the table. It originally was matched with the 3-1/4 HP. If the base plate is the same I can probably get by.
