I recently made one for my router and what I did that worked very well for me was to measure the diameter of the bushing hole in the base you are trying to duplicate as well as the “rabbited edge” diameter and then I used forstner bits on the drill press, drilling the larger one first in the center of the base, drilling it to the correct depth (sorry, don’t remember how deep it is off the top of my head but a caliper will tell you) and from there I used the smaller bit (the one that fits the actual busing barrel or sleeve that passed thru the base and finished the hole) it worked great for me and served me well until I dropped the router on the bench, router is ok but the base split. Oh well.

Hope this was helpful
