Default Mastergrip Router table router mounting

I have a problem mountimg a router to the Mastergrip table. Craftman Router won't fit
Porta Cable won't fit. If I use a adapter the router shaft is to short to do any work.

Edward, glad you found us, it's great to have you as a member of the community, welcome to Router Forums.
Did you buy this table new, there should have been a plate adapter for it.

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

Hi Edward, welcome to the forum.

I am surprised that those common brands will not fit.

Is this a new or second hand table?

What model number, age?

Does the router screw into the router table or is there a plate?

I am not familiar with that brand...

From another forum:

Quote:
I did a quick search of my own and found that the router is made by Alltrade Tools (http://www.alltradetools.com/). I didn't see any links for a manual or much other information for that matter. But at the very least you now have a place to contact to see what kind of info they can provide.
This seems to be a clone of the Mastercraft router table from many years ago.

HI Edward, you will be lucky to find any manual or information on that router table.

You do not say what router that you do have, but you should be able to drill out the top to fit most small routers.

It is a used table from ebay(big mistake) No plate adapter, I made one out of steel but when mounted, Screwed to the table the router shaft is to short to do any work, Has any one used an extension on a router shaft? Help

You did not give model numbers of routers,but if have read the threads here a lot of people use the muscle Chuck it will give about 1/2" extra height also tightens with an Allen wrench,
I believe the manufactures giving router forum members 5% off
Quick Change Router Chuck - Dewalt - Porter Cable - Festool - Hitachi - Bosch - Makita - Trend - Freud - Fein - Metabo - Carvewright - Camless Router Chuck - High Speed Chuck - Precision Chuck - Wood Working Chuck - Router Accessories - DeRosa Engine

EBay I've been duped to many times to ever use them again . There's some good honest people there but the bad ones just give it a bad name

Edward, I have the Mastergrip manual for your table and will be glad to send it to you when I get more posts. Basically, though, it says that you have to remove the plastic plate on the router (Porter Cable and Craftsman) for mounting. My mounting plate is just under 3 mm thick.

Hope this helps, Bob
