To make additional holes in the base is the way to use that router in your router table, but consider you can miss variable speed if it is not present in this old model.I recently discovered an unused router that belonged to my late Dad. A Hitachi zx2008. It is at least 25 years old still in its box. looking to see if anyone has used 1. Want to see if I can mount it under a diy router table but there is no removable base insert. Thanks in advance
If you use only small diameter bits, it is not a problem but most people uses a wide variety of bit diameter in their router table. It is scary and dangerous to use a panel raiser bit at full router speed, as an example.
All the best.
