Stick if it's like an old Sears router table/router combination like one I had years ago the top is stamped metal and in the stamping they also countersink the metal for the mounting screws, something that is close to impossible to replicate by hand. I'm afraid in that case that the table is meant for one of Sears' routers and probably not even all of Sears' routers. If the top is thicker than about 1/16" thick then Stick's plan has a chance but you need more metal thickness so you can countersink for the screw heads.

The 690 was a very popular router at one time and there may be tables already drilled for it. Most modern tables have an insert plate that fits into a rabbet on the table top and it's easier to find plates that are drilled for that pattern. There is also a ton of info on this site about building your own and it really isn't that hard to do. Start simple and figure out what you want it to do and build a better one or ones later. I'm on about version 6 I think.
