Default adapter

I have had a B&D model 7613 Type 3 router for years, and a long time ago my wife gave me a Craftsman model 17.254790 router table to go with it. However, the mounting holes on the table do not match up with the holes on the router base. Is there (or was there) an adapter that would allow mounting of non-Craftsman routers to this table?

I doubt it. Drilling new holes is the usual solution.

why not drill new holes in your table to match your router. that way you know you have the right line-up

If you decide to drill your own mounting holes, getting the router centered to the hole on the plate is the most difficult part. I bought a $7 Bosch RA1151 centering pin and cone from Amazon for that purpose. Works with 1/4" or 1/2" collets by just flipping the cone around. This is a real time saver.
