Default New to table routing

Hello all,
Forgive me I am new to using routers and am trying to learn more.
I have a question about mounting a Skil Model 1810 Fixed Base, on a home-made table. What exactly do I need to take off so as to mount the adapter plate on? Do i take the whole base off or just the sub-base plate?

Thanks in advance for any help and/or advice on this.

Roy

Hi Roy: The sub-base is usually removed, and the mounting screws are reused to fasten
the router to the adapter plate. Hope this helps.. Woodnut65

Thanks Woodnut65. I wasn't sure and didn't want to tear something up.

Roy, to mount your router easily take one of your screws that holds the sub base plate to the bottom and visit your hardware store. They will have pointed allen screws in the same thread. Install these point down in your routers base, position it on the mounting plate and tap lightly with a mallet. The allen screws will make small dimples exactly where you need your mounting holes, perfect every time. These allen screws may be called transfer screws or by other names but I am sure you get the idea.

Roy,

You could also clamp the subbase to the plate and use a vix bit to locate the center of the screw holds.

Joe, there is a problem with using the Vix bits, many of the routers use metric screws, and for minimal play need the holes drilled with metric bits.
