This is my first post and I am definitely a novice. My question may have been asked previously and I can try to read further. My question is:
My Craftsman 2HP router base plate is not compatible with a brass Guide Bushing. Is there an after market base plate that allows for the brass bushing? Sears sells some plastic bushing but seem to be junk.
Before I found this palce and the television show, I invested in Sears and Rockler. They are both in Seattle.
Thanks in advance. -Derek

Derek, check out oak-park.com. They have the base plate that would fit your router along with the brass guides.

Guys,
Thanks for the quick replies. Working Graveyard, I was able to read through this forum from top to bottom. Was there ever so much information! It seems that my problem is quite common. I think that I found a solution. I am definitely going to order parts through the main sponsor of this site.
My present router is probably going to end up permanently mounted in my router table. A new router will be my portable for use with jigs, etc.
