I am making my own table out of a bathroom cabinet. I used a Harbor Freight plate. It was easy to get the router centered and holes drilled. So far so good.

Jason, your router will work in most tables. You may need to drill holes in the mounting plate but this is easily done and described elsewhere on the forums.

Jason,

I purchased the Rockler HPL table, fence, & plate for my Freud router (1702VCEK). You have to specify that you want Group B routers. I have been very pleased with the entire package, especially the plate. It is 1/4" aluminum and was drilled perfectly to fit the router. I was more interested in using the router right away in a table than in building a table. Some day, I am sure I will create my own, but for now, this has worked well for me.

Good luck!
