This will be a little different..... I'm going to give you some details to start.

First this is the router table mentioned in:
www.routerforums.com/showthread.php?t=780

The larger round object is the subject of this "What is it?". Included in the box are the fasterners shown on the napkin, the guide bushings and mounting ring for them. I will also say that I want details as to what it is and how it is used with the shown router table.

Since I want a lot of details about how this works and what it is it should be worth a bit more, say 200 points. Now you have to be the first one with the answer I'm looking for about how this works with the table to get the win and points.

Good luck!

Ed

No takers on this one? What if I up it to 300 points? How about a hint? OK what if I do both!
Hints:
1) Sears part #171.25326 Router universal adapter plate
2) Used on non-Sears routers to adapt to Sears router accessories

I own 2 of these, one is used to let me use the .40 (yes it true, .40) bushing that sears has for the dovetail/finger joint jig on my PC router. The second one is used to...... OH I best not tell you about that.....

Good luck!

Still no guess?????????
What if I made it 10000 points? Hey wait a second...... I'm not give away 10000 of my hard earned points!!!!!! What do you think I'm made of??????

OK a few more hints then:
1) No drilling is required
2) Fits most routers
3) You did notice the nuts in the pile of parts right?
4) You do know the router table insert only fits sears routers, right?

Was this any help?

Is anyone reading this??

Any one at all??

I might do that as well but for now I want to leave my options open besides some of the newer users might not want to try and center the router and drill the holes and countersinking.....

Now what are you going to do about a starter pin?

******************************************************

Sorry this might have been a little off subject for some of you.... but to make up for that check out the image..... The nuts go in holes on the ruter side of the sub-base. I used some tape to hold them in place. Another hint:
The table insert has a hole pattern that matches where the nuts go in the sub-base.


Now can you tell us the details?????

gone!

The part in questions lets you mount a non sears router on a sears table without the need to do any drilling or trying to get things centered.....

In post five the image show the nuts located on the sub-base, these need to stay in place when you turn the sub base over and mount it to the router. These nut line up with holes in the table insert and the screws go through the table insert and in to the nuts to hold everything together.

Once mounted to the router you can attach the table insert to the sub base. If you have a large router you will need to have the table insert in the table when the router is attached. In the case of the router shown it can be set done else where then twisted and dropped in place. A word of caution.... the screws the attach the table insert to the sub base must be the correct length!

Please check the images and if you have questions let me know and I'll see if I can make it clearer.

Ed, I hung a Craftsman Commercial router on my table. I am not happy with the factory alignment of the holes. As far as a safety pin I can use the larger mounting holes for one.

I tried my 315.275110 it uses the three large holes and it seemed to fit fine. How ever I have a better table for that 12.8 pound router and moved it back. I then tested the one pictured but that will not stay either.... I'm thinking one of my fixed bases for one of my PC690's for now and it can stay mounted as I have it setting in the case and haven't used it in years..... with the plunge base and d-handle it just isn't called for..... the other 690 is in the std. base in case I even need to use one that way.

The mounting holes are a bit far for my taste but the table insert material is one that I'm not to sure about as far as just drilling a hole for a starter pin.... I also thought about a threaded insert since the wood always go by in the direction of tightening screw (threaded stater pin).

The Craftsman Commercial router is now mounted to one of the Biskit adapters. I ended up selling the table today at the flea market. The guy is going to mount a Bosch 1617 on it. I gave him my number for when he gets into trouble...
