First off welcome to the forum. We are a friendly bunch here please add your name and other info to your profile. Then to your question. You can make your own base out of Lexan or Plexiglass. There our plans located on the forum https://www.routerforums.com/guide-bushings-templates/8114-making-your-own-sub-base-plate.html If but if you don't want to do that you could install a universal base that will accept bushings like this one . https://www.amazon.com/DCT-Universal-Acrylic-Porter-Cable-Hitachi/dp/B077333DVR/ref=sr_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=universal+router+base&qid=1602171329&sr=8-9 If you just want an adaptor that would fit your base plate I don't see why you couldn't make that as well from Lexan or plexiglass.

Hope that helps and have a great Day.

Hey JJ... It may be worth getting the Milescraft baseplate with the template guides. https://www.amazon.com/Milescraft-1201-Plate-Bushing-Routers/dp/B001JEOMN2/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjw8fr7BRDSARIsAK0Qqr7tEJHrT_JQXbvMtZnbkKsuFSeeUdft-6wCFRDXwT8m6AdUpLEBcpEaAqHOEALw_wcB&hvadid=295331708054&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=1015555&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=10359441940562475312&hvtargid=kwd-569325684636&hydadcr=28596_10166500&keywords=milescraft+router+base&qid=1602192130&sr=8-8&tag=googhydr-20 I am happy with mine however the baseplate itself is slightly different than the one I bought a few years back for my Craftsman. It is doable and a convenience especially swapping out different size guides. If you just want the Universal base plate it's here.... https://www.milescraft.com/product/universal-base-plate-2/
