Default Your thoughts please

I have found a Craftsman Router Table on a local site along with a workbench for $75.00. It is older which fits my needs since I have an older Craftsman Router that will probably fit. No one, not even Sears, can tell me which table will fit this router. The owner has a fence and some other accessories to this table. I am going to see it this morning. Since I cannot post an url, it looks like an older metal table and depending on the condition and what it has with it I will decide. What should I look for? What are must have accessories?

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You might try taking your router, or just the base plate, along to see if the holes match.

You can create your own base plate to fit. This isn't that difficult to do.

Hi Rick:

I agree with Ed (Hamlin) on this one. When my father purchased a Woolcraft table to go with his MasterCraft router, I make a custom subbase, as per Hamlin's suggestion, and mated the two. Use the supplied subbase as a template and use a flush trim bit to create a plywood or MDF copy of the supplied subbase.
