Hey Guys
Just bought a Craftsman Prof series table and have a Hitachi router that doesn't work with the mounting plate. Instead of buying an adapater plate, is there any reason why I can't just drill holes into the plate to match the Hitachi routers mounting holes? Or is there some type of design built into the Craftsman adapter plate. Thanks again for any help!

Jim, you certainly can drill new mounting holes to fit your router. Take care that it is centered. Rousseau makes centering kits that cost like $3. These kits incude a 1/4" x 2" long shaft you chuck up in the router, a disk with a 1/4" hole in it that fits their mounting plate, and pointed Allen transfer screws you put into your routers base to mark the exact locations onto the plate. You can get the same effect with a home made set up.
