From what I've been hearing Bill you could probably hitchhike to where the table is and make it back before the mail will get it to you right now. It's hard for me to suggest what will happen or what you need to do to mount it until we can see it and what comes with it. Normally what we do is take the black plastic sub base off and use it for the drilling pattern. You won't be using it when you mount it to a plate anyway. It's hard to be more specific than that. Do you have a set of guide bushings for the router? They usually help and they are handy for doing a lot of jobs once you start get serious about routing. Just so you know, you can post pictures from your own hard drive without 10 posts, just not from a photo sharing site.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
