Newb, plunge router/table question
I bought my first router the other day, it's a craftsman 1 3/4 hp plunge router. Got it on sale for 65 bucks so I figured I couldn't go wrong. I've been sifting through the posts trying to find out what exactly I need to do to mount this thing to a table. Assuming I find a plate that fits it. Seems like mos companies only have them for porter cable, dewalt etc. I've been looking at some tables from woodpecker, rockler, and kreg. Woodpecker has a plate for craftsman HD/plunge, I wonder if that's what I need.
So assuming I get it connected to a table is the depth then adjusted by plnging the router and locking it in place? How is it done with a fixed router, do you loosen the motor from the base and adjust it that way? Would it be possible/easier for me to find a fixed body for this router? It's model number is 17540.
I seriously can't wait to start playing with this thing.
