Default Mounting router to table issues

I am sure this has been asked and dealt with but I could not find info so I am asking for some basic help.

I have a Craftsman Router Table that is a table top style. Looks a lot like Model 28160 on current Sears page. Just got a new Porter Cable router, Model 8902 and am having trouble figuring out how to mount it to the table. Should be easy enough I thought but nothing lines up. I assumed some standardization between these items but we all know what happens when we assume.

Some help please. Let me know, good or bad.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Soapy

You will need to drill some new holes to mount the PC router..

As Bob said, you just need to drill new mounting holes. You can use the base of the PC router to mark the hole positions with a center punch. Just be careful to get the base centered accurately on the existing center hole of the RT. If your table has center inserts, see if one of the smaller ones might fit the OD of a guide busing, and use that to center the base before marking the screw-hole positions. Also, make sure that you position the holes so that the router controls will be accessible.
