Default Mounting A Ronix 7112

I recently bought my second router - a huge stuff ( about 6 Kg) , made by Ronix. I wish to mount the router on a table.A woodworker suggested I rout 2 cylindrical routs on an MDF and mount it using the router rods used for the straight guide ( Am I clear Here :c?
At home I removed the base plate - a poly-something plastic , and thought I can use 4 longer screws ro screw them on an MDF board. I'm a bit worried about the weight of 7112 and wonder if the screws will hold the router "securely" in place. I found that all screws used anywhere on the router are made from a mild metal ( steel ? ) and one can easily ruin them. So I am worried about the sturdity of the aluminum base, and the scres I find in Iran which are no better than the Chinese. Hope I am clear on this. English being my 2d language and now we're in the realm of woodworking lexicon
Appreciate any comments.

Have you given some thought bracing your table with some 1/4" angle. that sould be sufficient to prevent saging and whatever. let us know what you do. Gary

Are you asking if screws (bolts or machione screws) will hold the router to the table? If so yes, but you should also put washers on the top to prevent the screws from pulling through. Countersink the washers using a bit that will fit the washer. Simply drill the top enough for the washer to sit slightly below it.

Farhad, there are so many materials used around the world it is hard to know exactly what you are working with. You should have no problems with your router's weight; the big Porter Cable 3-1/4 hp model weighs over 9 Kg. Many people like to use aluminum for a mounting plate with big routers; I prefer using phenolic plastic like the one shown.

Default Mounting Ronix 7112

Thank u all for ur replies. Being conservative I normally turn out to make things like old Russian stuff ! I'll check on price and availability of 10mm steel rods ( I like 25cm length rather than 18 cm guides of Ronix). My 2d alternative is what Mike suggests, which is the voice of experience.
