I have read Bob's book on routers and find it OK, but I have not been able to find a supplier for those 11"X11" quarter inch thick blank phenolic sheets. My second question to this is that evrything I have in the way of guides is for the Porter-Cable opening. How do I easily make that stepped hole to accept the guide bushings?

Hi Joe

You can make your own base plates but for your 1st. one you should buy one that's premade.

see links below.

NOTE***that the Oak-Park plates will have a 1 1/2 " center hole and the standard is
1 3/16" for the PC routers.

I do like to make my own and I use 1/2" plastic stock,hole saw.fly cutter,router bits,etc. it can take alot of work to made one, but I do enjoy making my own.
The stock from ACE Hardware,HD,Lowes, the best spot is a plastic supply company in your town, many sale cut offs cheap and have a scrap bit right up front .
like the one below ,for just one of many :)
