You may want to get the #35863. This way you can drill the mounting holes to fit your router. Otherwise you may want to call Rocklers to find out which one will fit. They offer 2 that will fit craftsman routers.

Hopefully others will chime in.

I would do as Ken suggested. That router is pretty easy to set up on a plate.
