Default Router and Router Table

I have a craftsman router table model 171.264640 and a Craftsman Router model
320.27683. When I mount the router to the table there is no hole in the router table
adapter plate for the micro adjustment wrench. I have tried to get in touch with
Sears/Craftsman to talk to an expert but it is like an act of congress. I can't get
any help. The table is an old model and I have looked at the new without help.
Any Thoughts ?

Hi david

You will need to drill the hole out for the micro adjustment tool,just pull off the plate off the router, take some screws and screw it to the table , once you have it in place drill the hole out then take the plate off and put it to one side and bolt your router in place, now your set to use the micro adjustment..easy stuff

I also had to drill out a hole in my plate for the adjustment tool to use my Milwaukee Router. Do as Bob suggests and you will be all set.

When something is advertised as being foolproof there is always a better class of fool that comes along to prove them wrong.

Thanks Bob J,
The problem is that the holes between the router monting hole and the micro adjustment
are about 12/32 apart ctr. to ctr. The ed between the the holes is about 4/32. The screw size for the mount hole I believe is a 3/16 counter sink. The adapter plate is made of a composite material and I am afraid it will either crack out or not have enough ed to make the screw effective in holding the router or will crack from vibration.
Thank You,
