Default base plate

Hi Bob - Welcome to the forum
I believe sears has a base plate for the Craftsman router that will take guide bushings. I don't know how old your Craftsman is but on some of the older ones, depth setting is an issue.
For the Handyman router, from what I've heard, parts support is an issue with it. This universal baseplate works on most all routers although I have heard some only able to use two of the predrilled holes which isn't really an issue. It also comes with a set of turnlock bushings which swap in and out of the base very quickly. It includes a universal turnlock adapter so you can use your Rockler bushings as well.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
