Bob, There are too many Craftsman models to keep track of them all. Can you post a photo of yours?
Replacement parts will be available from Sears, ie your light plug.
You may get the answer you are looking for as to guide bushings by clicking here: http://www.routerforums.com/general-routing/962-guide-bushing-identification.html
You can either build a new sub base plate as described in other posts on the forums or use the Craftsman plastic guide bushings.(Not my first choice since they tend to flex very easily.)
You can purchase a circle guide for making your 10" circle or build a simple one from some 1/4" thick hardboard or Plexiglas.
What size inlay are you working with?
The bit is determined by the material you will be working with.

Tell us a bit more about the type of wood and what you are trying to inlay so we can give you good information.
