Request - Compatible Router Table

Hi all!

First time poster here. I was just given my dad's old router and thought the router table my buddy had would work with it, but it does not. Looking for help figuring out what router tables will be compatible with my router. I have a Model 315174921 CRAFTSMAN ROUTER ( Looking to buy a lower-end router table for this to start making some picture frames with. Any help on how I know whether my router will fit the table? Most pictures I find online of the tables don't show the mounting interface itself.

Some potential options are linked below:

I owned that almost exact (switch looked to be in a different position) router bought in around 1984. The switch went bad and was able to find the exact replacement on E-Bay for something like $8 about 5 years ago. I used a "table top" router table until 2013 very successfully. Think it was a Sears table, but do not remember having three holes for mounting from below. Rather, recall it having three strap clamps that connected to three grooves under the table via bolts and wing nuts provided with the table. These clamps locked the base; without the plastic face, to the underside very firmly. It have a grooved top table with adjustable fence segments. The legs were angle steel with holes in the feet for bolting to a larger wood base, or clamped to a surface. I clamped it to the table of my Sears radial arm saw of the same vintage many, many times. Used it very successfully to make a executive design mahogany desk with a lot of custom moldings in the early 1990's - with care it will not limit what you can do for a long time. My son currently has the router and table, unfortunately it'll be some weeks before I could photograph for you. Suspect you could find something compatible on E-Bay, etc.
